Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
I use the Cuisinart electric kettle, and that way we don't accidentally leave a kettle to boil dry. And absolutely yes, "almost boiling." I let the kettle boil and turn itself off and then give it a few moments to settle down. Pouring boiling water causes too much splashing that can lead to burns. Regardless of the container you boil in, pouring boiling water is unsafe. Lose a degree or two and your tea won't suffer.
