For true tea connoisseurs, heating water to the proper temperature is key—too hot and the taste and health benefits of greens, whites and herbals are destroyed. Adagio, the company that introduced the automatic tea maker, has a solution with the new cordless Utilitea kettle featuring a variable temperature control.
Much like other electric kettles, the Utilitea has a stainless steel canister and heats up to four cups of water in a matter of a few minutes. The difference is the color-coded dial that selects a temperature suitable to the type of tea you're brewing. Pick it up from Adagio for $49.
