Tea Temperatures

I recently purchased a Breville Professional kettle. I am a lover of all gadgets, and could not resist a kettle that can boil to different temperatures and has a keep warm function.


My fancy kettle which has different Tea Temperatures
my kitchen counter
  • Variable electronic control
  • 5 temperature control for optimal tea and coffee brewing
  • Quiet Boil Technology
  • Keep Warm function
  • 1.7 litre capacity
  • Fast Boil 2400 watt
  • Cushion controlled lid
  • Safety auto cut off and boil dry protection
  • Non slip handle with stainless steel cover
  • Brushed stainless steel body and base
  • Clear view front water window

They make a clear glass one as well, but I have not yet seen it in South Africa.

What I have learnt is that different teas require different temperatures to bring out their optimal quality and taste. Here is the guide:
