With the talk of North Americans and some of the horrible tea-making habits, I thought you might enjoy taking a look at the "new Steeped Tea" at Tim Hortons. Tim's is not normally known for its tea - more the coffee and donuts.
As for the "do they or do they not have kettles" question, I don't know many people who don't have a kettle here in Canada. I do remember being shocked with I saw a friend (kettle-less) boiling water on the stove for coffee and tea. Soon after, this friend got a coffeemaker of the drip variety, and instead of coffee, he'd put several teabags in the basket and let the water run through. Strong enough to trot a mouse, as Robertson Davies said.
Looking forward to the book,

In response to your strange "discovery" that the Americans don't have electric kettles, may I say that as a proud Canadian, electric kettles DO exist in North America. Many of my friends have them in their kitchens. Aside from our lattes and double espressos, we do love a nice cuppa every now and then.
