Tea Kettle

I like tea just in case y’all didn’t know.  I’ve been drinking tea for far longer than have I been drinking coffee (coffee has only happened in the last few years whereas I’ve liked tea since I was a little kid).  In college I had an awesome electric tea kettle, it wasn’t anything fancy but it got the job done right (ie. it boiled water good).  I am not sure what happened to that electric tea kettle, probably somewhere up north in Vermont.  What I do know is that I do not have it down here.  As such I have drank relatively little hot tea since moving to South Carolina, which admittedly is kind of silly considering that it doesn’t really take a rocket scientist to boil water.  Anyway, not the point . . . the point is that yesterday, while home sick, I went and bought a tea kettle to make myself some hot tea (tea is one of my favorite things to drink when I am feeling ill).  It isn’t in any way a high quality tea kettle, but like the electric one it does a decent job of the water boiling.  I must have drank about four or five cups of tea throughout the day yesterday.  And the god news is that I am feeling considerably better this morning (not to say that is solely due to tea consumption, I did spend most of yesterday in bed sleeping and taking medicine).

Personal tea preferences

  • Hot:  Brewed strong, no sugar (occasionally a little honey . . . but very very little)
  • Iced: Also brewed strong, southern style (aka. a shit load of sugar)
My personal favorite type of tea is Earl Grey.  I really love the bergamot flavor.  I am also really partial to green and white teas.  An English Breakfast tea is really superb during the meal it is named after.

  1. There’s only one kind of tea in my book – sweet and iced. Too much sugar can definitely ruin tea though, as I prefer my beverages as a liquid and not a syrup.
