Put the Kettle on!
I grew up in the South where you put a saucepan of water on the stove and when it boils you add several Lipton tea bags, tied together, and let it steep. When it cools, add sugar and cool water and store it in the 'frig'.... quenching sweet iced tea! The very first day we moved to London I bought an electric kettle. It was fantastic! It boiled water in minutes and I could have a cup of my favorite Twinning's Earl Grey or Teapig's Licorice and Mint tea before my wellies were off.
Here is the "Say it ain't so" part of this story. Did you know that some kettles have filters in them? For six years I have been boiling water in this kettle and never knew there was a removable - cleanable filter! If you can imagine what your teeth would look like if you didn't have the plaque scrapped off for six years you can imagine what this filter looked like.....
