★ Smart Tea Timer: Tea's terrific timer remembers your favorite brew times for *each* of your teas.
★ Default Brew Suggestions: Not all teas are meant for use with boiling water. Tea comes pre-loaded with brew suggestions (temperature, time, leaf amount) for over 200 tea names and 12 tea types, all prepared by tea expert Thomas Smith.
How to use: These brew suggestions are the default brew settings for each of your new teas. If you enter in "Sencha," for example, the first time you brew Sencha you will have the suggested time and temperature for Sencha loaded automatically. If you enter in "Earl Grey," you will have the suggested time and temperature for Earl Grey loaded automatically! And so on.
★ Notes and Rating System: After your timer is up, Tea lets you save tasting notes and rate your brew. Tea even keeps track of your brewing time, tea amount, and temperature, so that you can hone in on the perfect brew for each of your teas.
★ Automatic Unit Conversion: Tea's Set Brew screen automatically converts units for you. If your tea's temperature instructions come in degrees Celsius, for example, Tea automatically converts it to Fahrenheit if that is your preferred unit.
★ Facebook and Twitter Integration: With the tap of a button, you can have Tea share your tasting notes with your friends on Twitter and Facebook.
★ Tea History: Go back and view all of your tasting notes and brew settings with a tap of a button. Fully searchable.
★ Inventory Tracker: When you input a new tea, Tea automatically calculates how many brews you can make with that tea. Each time you use Tea's timer, Tea recalculates how many brews you have remaining. Be in full command of your tea inventory.
★ Multiple Infusion Support: Tea intelligently counts your tea infusions and preloads your notes with infusion number.
★ Shake to Shuffle: Can't decide on which tea to have? Simply give your iOS device a shake, and Tea will select one at random for you!
★ Tea Scratchpad: A place to store miscellaneous tea-related notes. Hear about a cool new tea from a friend?

It's been a while, but we've been hard at work on a major update. For previews, the latest news, and a chance to be a beta tester, follow us on Twitter at @teaapp, or on Facebook at facebook.com/teaapp!
We've fixed a couple of bugs.
- Tea now uses iOS 5's Twitter integration to make Twitter sharing easier.
- Fixed bug in which switching apps could cause a timer error.
- (Not a bug fix but a frequently asked question) To delete a tea or note, simply swipe across it with one finger, and a Delete button will appear.
More is on the way! Hang tight.
