Love this kettle. I rarely use the pre-set features & brew according to the vendor’s recommendations. I have had no problems with water quality (filtered from fridge) nor hard water deposits (our water is soft here). When there is tannin build up (there will be with heavy use), the Breville organic tea cleaner works great. This unit is a must when I have company. I really LOVE having the ability to quickly brew water to an exact temperature when using my other teaware. I have had this unit for about 18 months.

My 38 year commitment with tea began as a morning relationship with simple malty blacks with notes of honey, cacao & spice. I’m still faithful to this ritual, however my tastes have evolved from a bag of leaves into loose leaf varietals with depth and power. After an hour or more, as my morning wake-up ritual with one of my black teas draws to a close, I become rather fickle.

I adore oolong or sheng pu-erh in the afternoon, although I regularly have short flings with white tea or matcha. Green leaf is my least favorite, although I do enjoy it from time to time. I have also recently begun to enjoy shou, after an abysmal first experience.
