I love tea. It offers a feeling of comfort, and well-being. But did you know that tea is also good for you. Tea can give you important antioxidants, vitamins. It can help make your immune system stronger, give you energy and make you feel more active. But tea is best when it’s fresh and making tea from leaves requires a special electric tea kettle, one that will make the most of your fresh or dried tea leaves. So here is my take on the Best tea kettles for 2015 & 2016.

1. Frieling 18/10 Stainless Steel Primo Teapot

If you are a tea drinker then you know that most teapots either pour tea at the speed of a snail or pour it too quickly; this is not the case with the Frieling. Here the spout works as it should. It pours quickly, but not too quick, and smoothly without your having to flood the kitchen counter with tea.

The filter fits in easily and can be removed when you decide to use  tea bags instead of loose leaf tea. The only thing I sometimes wish is that the kettle came in a larger size. It comes in an nice mirror steel finish with a tea infuser that has a cool tea leaf guard that holds back the stems and leaves from the water. It has a fabulous design and a comfortable handle.

2. Primula 40-Ounce Blossom Glass Teapot

Sometimes gripping the tea kettle can be a problem. Not so with this high-grade stainless steel kettle with a good grip handle and a large lid. It also comes with a very loud whistle that tells you when the water is ready. I also like the fact that the handle moves out of the way for filling and pouring.

Just like being back home.

This is that tea kettle with the old fashioned enamel look we remember from our childhood.

It has a tight-fitting modern looking lid that retains heat and can easily be removed for filling. Clean it easily by hand, and best of all, it comes with a lifetime warranty.

6. Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel 10-Cup Electric Kettle

I don’t really think I consider this a 5th place, but more of an alternative for taking your tea anywhere. This is an electric tea kettle made by one of the most renown manufacturers in the business.  I recommend this one because of its convenience. You can take it anywhere with you and it offers cord-free serving. I like to take this little kettle anywhere there isn’t a stove, like the office or on a trip. It has an interior concealed heating element which means it’s safe to use and won’t burn anything that sits next to it. You can also see how much water the stainless steel kettle has left through the water window. OK. so you are thinking, this is electric, so it won’t heat as well. But it does, and very quickly with its 1500 Watts of power.

Like a bright, shiny, new sports car, this professional tea kettle stands out. Made of surgical stainless steel, this is a kettle that will never blacken. Certainly, one of the best looking tea kettles I’ve ever seen. It has an over-sized base and heats quickly without having any heat loss. The bright mirror gleam is really cool. The handle is very comfortable and ideal for pouring. The grip feature keeps the handle cool, even when the rest of the kettle is hot.

This is a very high quality tea kettle made of stainless steel. It has a nice flat bottom for easy and quick heating and a really nice tight fitting lid. There’s also a nice tight fitting lid and a secure riveted handle. The only thing I don’t like too much about this kettle is that there is no handle grip that doesnt get hot with the kettle. But other than that it’s really a nice piece of kitchen equipment.

It has a drip free spout that I love and a rubberized handle so I don’t burn myself.
