Toronto gets vending machine that makes loose leaf tea

Truly, we are in a golden era of vending machines in Toronto. First, the downtown got its very own twin machines that dispense cufflinks and fancy donuts. Now, you can add custom-blended tea to the list of luxuries that you can now purchase without talking to anyone: teaBOT is a locally-based startup that lets you create your very own blend of loose-leaf tea through a touch-screen kiosk.

It's a simple process: Walk up to the kiosk, pick out your ingredients, watch your tea get brewed, and take a sip of your custom blend, all in about 30 seconds. (It's like the Nutrimatic, except it's able to actually produce real tea.)

If you settle on a blend that you like, you'll eventually be able to order some to enjoy at home. Want to give the drink of the future a spin yourself? teaBOT will be located at Harry Rosen's Bloor St. location today (December 13) and next Saturday, December 20.
