Maybe it's a side effect of watching so much BBC America, as Deb and I have started drinking tea. No Lipton here… Or current favorite is Margaret's Hope Autumnal SFTGFOP-1 Darjeeling. It helps having a first rate coffee roaster and tea shop in town. We just purchased a new kettle and went with the Oxo Uplift Tea Kettle The first use was a bit of a surprise, the multi-note steam whistle sounds like a steam engine coming down the tracks. Highly recommended.
