I admit it …I love gadgets!
I drink 3-4 cups of green tea daily (no sugar please) so when my old whistling teapot kicked the bucket I began searching for a replacement. My journey took me to Bed Bath and Beyond where among the myriads of magnificently tempting items I found “my precious”! A programmable tea kettle! What makes this so wonderful, you ask?
Well, you have to understand that a well-brewed cup of tea must not be subjected to …“boiling” water ….aargh…agast. In order to respect the delicate green tea leaves it should be brewed at a temperature of 175 degrees. Well this Cuisinart cpk-17 PerfecTemp Cordless Programmable Kettle is up to the task.
With 6 preset temperatures, I just press 175 and “start” and within a few minutes (it is very fast, and sounds a bit noisy) you have the perfect temperature to brew your favorite green tea! It has cool blue lights and yes it will boil water.
One of my favorite brands of tea is 180 Energizing tea. another is Tazo Organic Pan-Fired Green.
Makes you want to go brew a cup right now, doesn’t it?
