I'm a coffeeholic who is slowly converting to tea. Would you recommend a nice and efficient non toxic tea kettle? Are there any available here at local Asian or Indian shops?

Do you plan on making tea at work? I've got one of those electric water boiler things on my desk. It's perfect for a quick cup of tea in the morning.

I use filtered water and an Oxo whistling tea kettle to make tea. I can really taste the difference if I use our awful Richardson tap water straight.

The electric kettles are faster, but they get flaky inside.

I grab a nice sweet tea from Chicken Express every now and then.

No. I need one for my home. Office has one but it's big and looks industrial. I'm looking for something nice as I'll be using it 3-4 times a day.

Bella makes a ceramic electric kettle that doesn't get flaky. Target and Walmart both sell them.

That looks authentic but really diffrent than English tea making. I'm a bit skeptic about steep steel pot or kettles though.
