More Details
One thing i noticed about tea and its consumption is that many different tea varieties comes with different characteristics such as a brewing time and a brewing temperature. These are not details, a green Sensha would be destroyed if brewed around 90 degrees Celsius and most of the Oolong teas from Taïwan would be way too strong if brewed around three minutes.
As always when working a product, I place users at the core of design: Why would they use a tea app, what would they expect from it ?
A start point would be to fill the minimum requirement for tea enthusiasts : provide a collection of their teas and for each tea, the minimum setup : brewing time and temperature.
The primary idea was to provide a catalog so users can select teas from multiple brands or distributors and grow their collection. Each tea comes with an ideal brewing time and temperature and the app provides a timer so you don't have to quit the app to prepare your tea.
The first step is that users manually add their teas in their own collection. Next, we should construct a tea database to help people adding teas in their collection even more easily. 
Basically, pick a tea in your collection, check the temperature, put water in the teapot, launch the timer.
Features to come : 

- Create a tea database
As everyone is recording its own tea collection, some brands and teas are quite common. A collective database could simplify and shorten the input in the app.
