Yes, I love a good cup of tea. No, I didn't realize that there are several components of making said cup of tea.
At some point I learned about steeping teas for certain amounts of time. That solved the mystery of why some of my oolong teas had a bitter aftertaste, which I dislike.
Then I was watching a video on Youtube where the owner of the channel was displaying her tea collection, when I noticed a new gadget on her counter....a Cuisinart Tea Kettle. Oh my! Apparently this tea kettle had 6 preset temps which steeped the water to a certain temperature based on the type of tea being used. Say what!?
Why had I not heard of this. Immediately I started looking online. The price was not a pretty picture, but it kept annoying me until eventually I convinced myself that I was worthy of such a purchase. Then one day last week I saw this kettle discounted at Nomorerack.com for 40% lower than the retail value. So what if it was manufacture refurbished. I didn't hesitate to purchase it.
