Tea pot??

Tea pot??

PostBy: NWBuilder On: Thu Dec 19, 2013 10:14 am

Ok guys, I don't know if this is the right place for this but here goes. I am not a tea drinker so I have no idea on this. My wife has asked for a tea pot for Christmas and I would like to get her a good one. I got her one 6 or 7 years ago seemed nice enough stainless steel safe bet right. Well this Stainless is rusting, go figure!! Any suggestions on a pot for boiling water?? Let's not get crazy, she uses tea bags not bulk tea for lack of knowledge on the subject. Any help would be appreciated and time is of the essence. Thanks folks, NWB

Wow I think Smitty is right for that kind of money it should come out liquid gold. I appreciate the info but that is way over budget.

I completely understand your situation!

My wife's Aunt loves tea so we have a lot of experience buying tea and tea related products.

What about starting with a Japanese Tetsubin cast iron tea kettle?

I have one of these. Works great for hot chocolate as well as tea and coffee.

I was just looking at those and think they are a strong contender, I found one with a dragon on it that is very cool. I need to consult with my interior designer (sister) to make sure it will be acceptable!! Thanks, Ken

Geez, obviously the coal burners are saving tons of money. Boil the water yourselves and use a Swineside teapot (Ebay), if you want a coal theme they make an AGA unit. Me, use Wallyworld stuff it tastes the same.

I don't have any personal experience with it, but in BJ's the other day I noticed they had a really nice 18/10 stainless tea kettle for around $40. I am thinking about getting one. I am pretty sure it was this one.

Gee, I thought everyone just tossed a tea bag in a cup of water & put it in the microwave for a few minutes. Some people just have way too much time & money, for the price of some of those pots I couldn't afford a tea bag to put in it. :lol:
