[quote="freetown fred"]SH--REAL tea connoisseurs don't use bags--WTF--loose leaf only! ;)[/quote]

right on FF, and a very nice way of brewing real tea OR coffee is with a French Press you can't beat it and and it will out last anything out there. Buy a nice looker to heat your water in and let the water rest a minute and then pour in the french press, never use boiling water to brew loose leaf

Must be another wealthy con thing, I bet yonz even lift your pinky when you sip your tea. What the hell is wrong with buying an American Press? And I know the wife won't go for me getting a nice looker to heat the water for me, if she did I wouldn't get no rest & the tea would be cold by the time I got around to it. OH! never mind I just got around to rereading your post MA, carry on. :oops: ;)

My wife is a big tea drinker. She hammers the *censored* down before bed and sleeps through the night. :D

Builder, once you get that pot situation taken care of, here's some tea to go with it. 8-)

I drink some loose leaf organic tea at work. And yes, of course I keep my pinky out when I drink it...

I use one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Proctor-Silex-K20 ... tea+kettle

and one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Fred-Friends-Mist ... a+strainer

Have a nicer version at home: http://www.amazon.com/FORLIFE-Extra-fin ... +stainless

They have much fancier electric tea kettles....I love these things. They heat up water WAY FASTER than a typical on stove unit (at least on my electric stove) as the heating element is directly in the water.

So...my vote is for a nice stainless electric tea kettle and a nice stainless strainer.

Gotta make me some tea now...Gunpowder Green Organic it is...

It's a shame but I believe Russell-Hobbs stopped making their classic electric kettle. They're still in business, but the K-series was the stuff.

http://www.modip.ac.uk/artefact/aibdc-003345

After 30 years, mine started a little leak around the spout (where's a tinker and his dam when you need one?), so we use a cheap stovetop stainless, and the R-H is on the shelf appreciating in value...

You can get modern R-H kettles here in the States, so you might look into them. The Brits know a thing or two about cooking tea.
