Every tea lover has their go-to kettle. Whether it’s electric or one that heats up on the stove, it’s a tried-and-true tool that boils water to the perfect temperature for a nice, warm cup of Oolong or chamomile. Of course, there are plenty of people that haven’t yet found their tea kettle match.
There’s no time like the present. After all, tea has been a favorite since travelers from ancient China began experimenting with it all those centuries ago: They would often boil water to remove contaminants, and, in the process, mix some herbs in to give some extra flavor. Some of the earliest tea pots, meanwhile, are bronze iterations from Mesopotamia.
