I didn’t think I needed a Tea Kettle… UNTIL I saw this!

Recently, I was out shopping. Imagine my amazement at seeing so many tea kettles in one place. I haven’t had a tea kettle in years. I was brought down memory lane. I remembered having a blue Chantal tea kettle in my 20s. It had a loud whistle when water boiled.

What happened to that tea kettle? When did I give it away? I was thinking it must have been around the time that Nespresso coffee machines were “the craze.” I remember walking into Sur La Table in California. They had so many Nespresso machines to choose from.

Specifically, they had the Pixie in beautiful bright colors. I was drawn to the Lime green one. They gave a demo, I was sold on the ease of use and bought one. NO MORE TEA. So, that must have been how my Chantal tea kettle was given away.

Lately, I’ve been drinking a lot of tea. When I boil water, I use a pot. I admit, easy to use, but feels like I am camping. When my daughter went to College in Ireland she learned quickly that EVERY house has a tea kettle. Drinking tea is part of their life. It would be like the Italians. Every Italian house has an espresso machine of some sort.

As I looked at the tea kettle display I thought. Should I buy one? Is it necessary? They do whistle, my pot does not. Looking at the choices, I was drawn to the kettle with cherries on it. Made me think of a farm house.

While I didn’t buy a tea kettle that day. The display still has me thinking. Isn’t that the point of a retail display – THINK, then BUY. BRAVO!

Do you see what I see? YES, a cherry tea kettle on my stove!

  1. Oh yes the cherry tea kettle looks cute, very feminino :). When I moved into my apartment in Lisbon, there was an electric kettle, made of plastic (toxic!). I soon went to a store and got myself a real stainless steel kettle. The whistle reminds me of good old life and the time spend boiling water for a cup of tea. Ahhh, now what do I have with the tea? Maybe a cake lol

    1. Correct – this is for boiling water on the stove. The TEA POT is where you put the leaves/bags and pour the water FROM the Tea Kettle into the Tea POT. LOL – I had to think about it too.
