TeaTimer is a simple Menu Bar utility that comes in handy to those who need to be reminded when it's time to remove the tea paper bags from their cups. The application comes with very easy to configure settings, displays notifications on your screen once the timer hits zero, and uses minim CPU resources while running in your Menu Bar.

All you need to do in order to use this program is to select the preferred steeping (soaking tea bags in hot water) time and click the Start Timer button. A screen notification will be displayed on your desktop, just under your Menu Bar, as soon as the timer hits zero.

The application keeps track of previous timer options in case you need to reuse them later. A new feature available in this app version is the ability to clear your timer history: hold Option key while opening the program's main menu.

Other than that, not much more can be said about TeaTimer. It works perfectly and doesn't slow down the performance of your Mac.

The one thing I'd change - the option to type the exact timer values.

Hence, you should give it a try if you need to be reminded when it's time to remove tea paper bags from your cup. In addition, you don't have to pay a buck to use it on your computer.
