It is not always necessary to use a stovetop tea kettle when you are boiling water. If the pot or pan you are using has a lid, there is no need to boil water on the stove and fill up your house with steam. Place your pot or pan on the stove with cold water in it and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the burner. You can also place a dish towel over top of your pot for insulation while waiting for it to boil so that any vapor will condense into liquid before hitting the ceiling of your kitchen!
To use your tea kettle on the stove, you’ll need to heat it over a high flame. Let it boil for 5 minutes or so and then turn off the heat.
How do you make tea with a kettle on the stove?
I know what you’re thinking. You can’t just boil water on the stove, it’s too dangerous and there are better ways to make tea! But with a little bit of caution, you can safely use your kettle on the stove top. All you need is a pot holder or oven mitt to grab onto. Just be sure not to let go of the handle until it has cooled down enough for you to put it back in its place because metal will become very hot when boiling water. Once the water has come to a rolling boil, turn off the heat and pour as desired into your favorite mug or teapot.
1. Put water in the kettle and bring to a boil
2. Pour boiling water into your mug or teapot
3. Add tea leaves to your cup, pot, or infuser depending on what type of tea you’re making
4. Let steep until desired strength is achieved (usually 1-5 minutes)
5. Remove tea leaves from cup or pot before drinking – this will help the flavor last longer!
6. Sweeten with honey, sugar, milk, or other sweetener as desired
Pour water into the kettle and place it on a medium heat. When the water is boiling, remove it from the stove. Add your choice of tea leaves or other ingredients, such as fruit, honey, or milk to make iced tea.
