Whether you want to relax after a long day or you simply prefer to spend your mornings sipping tea instead of coffee, the key to a great brew is simple — a premium tea kettle.
You don’t have to be an avid tea connoisseur to understand the difference between a great cup of tea and a poor one. In fact, it’s likely that you’ve experienced both in your life.
That said, an excellent cup of tea starts and ends with the tea kettle that it is brewed in. Here’s what you need to know about choosing a great tea kettle for your kitchen and making your best cup of tea yet!
Choosing the perfect tea kettle for you can be challenging. However, the decision starts with understanding your personal preferences and needs. Here are some things to consider when choosing a great tea kettle.
Tea kettles come in many sizes, the most common of which are the 1.05-quart kettles and 2.5-quart kettles. The size that will work for you depends largely on your personal habits. The smaller 1.05-quart option is great for couples or singles who live alone. Each full brew from these kettles serves about four 8oz cups. That’s enough to entertain two to three people with a single cup each.
The larger of the two is great for those who entertain more frequently or who happen to live with two or more individuals. If you live alone, this is the perfect size for brewing a large batch of tea and chilling it for the rest of the week.
Like most forms of cookware, tea kettles a variety of materials. Choosing the material that will best suit your needs is a personal choice. You may be looking to add a tea kettle to your existing stainless steel cookware collection or you may prefer a pop of color and are looking for a kettle to bolster your kitchen decor. Either way, you’ll typically have two choices when it comes to the material with which your tea kettle is made — copper or stainless steel.
Copper tea kettles offer a distinct advantage over stainless steel as it is an excellent conductor of heat, it may bring your water to a boil slightly faster than a stainless steel kettle. Not to mention, copper kettles offer a vibrant and gorgeous color to your kitchen set up. Copper’s distinct hue can bring a much-needed pop of color to any kitchen set up.
Stainless steel tea kettles aren’t lacking when it comes to color! Stainless steel kettles can be painted to help you achieve the customizable look that you are looking for. In addition to their ever-changing hue, stainless steel tea kettles are durable and rust-resistant. You’ll be able to enjoy your stainless steel cookware for years to come!
As an added bonus, some kettles also include a strainer for those who are more inclined to use fresh loose tea leaves as opposed to bags. If you are in with the former, be sure to check whether your preferred tea kettle includes a strainer!
