It came with some metal tweezer/tong things. What are those for?

Super pretty! I have no idea about the tongs lol

yyz said

I think the tongs are for holding slash moving around the pieces when you steralize/ rinse them with tea or water.

Yay! It has been fun expeirmenting with it. Enjoy. So what will be the first tea grace the gwaiwan?

Eeeeeee! I got my Bonavita Gooseneck Electric Kettle! I am so excited to try this so I can program exact temperatures. It will be a huge improvement over my current methods, which are to either boil and cool, or try to guess the temp as the kettle heats on the stove.

Me: So yeah, my woman’s intuition is telling me that this water is around 183 degrees. Perfect!

I would be inside testing it out, but
1. It’s gorgeous outside and
2. I just ate salsa chips and it will be a little while before any tea I would make stops tasting like a fiesta!

Wish me luck!

Congrats! I love my gooseneck kettle :)

Sounds like a great investment. I love my Hamilton Beach w/variable temps. Makes it so easy!

Sarsonator said

I’m in love. It heats so quickly! It’s easy to use! It looks fab sitting out on the counter top!

I will miss my old stove top kettle, though.
