Microwave my tea? No way! Having a cup of tea isn't just about drinking the hot, soothing liquid, it's about the whole experience of actually making your tea.
Tea time is about taking some time for yourself, choosing the perfect aroma of tea to suit your senses while you wait for your kettle to quietly whistle as it warms. I love to cup the warm mug between my hands and smell the sweet steam as my tea bag steeps. Having friends over for tea is a great way to entertain or you can enjoy it by yourself while curling up with a good movie or book.
Here are some of my favorite tea kettles.
