Destanee Fournier. Tea Kettle. May 12th , 2017.
The natural aroma of fresh brewed tea in the morning or afternoon is enough to reinvigorate the numbest of senses. The single-most important component to successful tea making is the tea kettle. A common brewing method might include boiling water in an open pot. A consistent flavorful batch of tea is better produced with a tea kettle.
Tea kettles come in all different sizes and the amount of liquid a kettle can hold is a big selling point. For some people, tea is made when they have guests over. A larger kettle, usually one that can hold over 2 quarts, is ideal for making tea for large groups of people. The smaller kettles are cheaper, but are limited in the amount of tea can be made in one boil. Some kettles actually have a display on the back that will tell you exactly how much liquid is inside. This is a great feature when making tea that needs exact measurements of liquid so not to drown out the taste. Kettles can often times develop build up from moisture when used often. Some kettle pots are made out of ceramic and can help to prevent any dirt or build up from occurring inside the pot.
Want to sit back, relax, and enjoy a great cup of tea? What better way to brew your tea than in an electric tea kettle. For the very best tasting tea, this is the best way to go. The tea kettles bring 7 or less cups of water to a boil in less than five minutes. That is just as fast as an old fashioned stove top tea kettle. Just pop in your tea bags or leaves, switch to low heat, and brew the best tasting tea ever. With some kettles you can add your tea bags first; it will come to a boil, and then automatically shut off. There are also cordless electric kettles on the market. They are very popular to use when traveling.
Once you have decided what type of kettle you want you need to decide what material you want the kettle to be made of. A cast iron one is capable of heating the tea more evenly as it is denser but this also means that they are are a lot heavier and tend to rust. You can choose a tea kettle made of copper or stainless steel. Kettles are also available in glass and aluminum.
At one time, tea kettles in China were simple open containers. During the Ming Dynasty, lids for these containers were devised and used so that the tea leaves could steep more fully and the tea could stay hotter while it steeped. It wasn`t until the Dutch people exported tea by having it with them when they headed to the West that it was decided that something like today`s teapot was needed in order to make tea the proper way. Tea pots were created and became quite popular, which caused tea lovers to voice a need for different types of tea kettles to go with the array of pots available.
