||Nice site, Nicey, especially if you happen to love tea and/or biscuits. I bet any site for coffee and donut lovers is rubbish by comparison, and not nice-and-sit-downable at all.|
I saw an inquiry from Julie Hardcastle about brightly coloured round biscuits from the 70's. Could you let her know they were called Funny Faces (I think). Not sure who made them or when they stopped, but hopefully, she can now sleep a bit easier in her bed.
I'd also like to tell you about the kettle I recently bought. It's glass, so you can see the water boiling. How cool is that?
|Nicey replies: We have a kettle like that where I work and due to the hard water it looks like one of those snowstorm shaky things when you make tea.|
||I must say I find your biscuit reviews both informative and useful, however I think you may have overlooked something about the whole nice cup of tea thing. What about the kettle? The kettle is an integral part of the whole tea experience - should one use a filter kettle, or perhaps a Britta filter jug or both, which kettle is best? Much like biscuit dunking affects the tea taste so does the quality of the kettle which boiled the water in the first place..|
Being a selfish git I bring this up as I am looking to purchase a replacement kettle for our office and being massive tea drinkers the kettle takes a hammering. Our aging Russell Hobbs filter kettle is indeed a decripit and sad sight.
Anyhoo, if you or anyone else out there in the great wide tea drinking world could recommend a filter kettle I'd be most grateful.
|Nicey replies: Oh yes a well designed kettle is a must. We have very hard water here so our kettles take a real bashing.
We had a massively noisy (Morphy Richards rapid boil I think) kettle with a base which was circular and electrical connector in the middle, which had amazing acoustic properties. It was so effective at conducting the noise from the kettle to the work surface that it sounded like a passenger jet passing over and made it really tricky for anybody on the phone in the office. However, reading the blurb it seemed like the perfect kettle for the office.
