The Best of Tea
There are differences in styles of tea kettles and each have their plusses. One thing not to do is boil your tea in the kettle unless you are making certain herbal teas that the recipe calls for the herb to be boiled. Tea leaves become bitter quickly when boiled, so the tea-kettle is traditionally used for boiling water.
Historically, tea-kettles seem a little odd. Why not just boil the water in a pot and then transfer it to your teapot? In some countries this is still the traditional way to make tea, with water boiled in a pot on the stove.
But North American’s have accepted the kettle and almost every home has one. There are several different types of kettles:
- Electric Tea-Kettles
- Automatic Shut off Tea-Kettles
- Boil on the Stove Tea-Kettles
- Electric Water Boiler
- and of course, the Whistling Tea-Kettle
The Electric Water Boiler is very popular in East Asian countries. It is actually a vacuum flask with a heating element that boils water and maintains it at a constant temperature. Hot water on demand. The ater from these units is often used to dilute a concentrated tea. If you visit an Asian Tea House, you will probably see one of these units.
So why do North Americans use them, it’s convenient. They are easy to pour and heat the water very quickly. There is no other reason than to save yourself a couple of minutes waiting for the water to boil.
