  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly brewed tea every time Who knew tea could taste even better when steeped at the proper temperature? I like experimenting with different flavored teas from around the world. I had always used the same temperature hot water. This Kettle allows for 5 different temperature settings depending on the type of tea or french press coffee you are using. What a difference in taste when the proper temperature is used. Stylishly designed and heavy duty. Heats up super quick. One touch temperature settings that are easy to use. Perfect results every time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tea lovers dream Kettle I've always loved tea. I've always steeped my teas at the exact same temperature. Big mistake. The Smart Luxe Kettle is now my dream kettle. Different teas taste their best when steeped at the proper temperature. This is where this Kettle steps in. Simply choose your tea and the kettle does the rest. What an amazing difference it makes when steeped at the ideal temperature. Flavor is so much richer and the money spent on different teas is now worth it when made properly. The Kettle is so simple to use. Choose yoir tea and it literally does the rest. I am also utilizing it's super fast heating of water to try different pour over coffees. Having the hottest water and quickly gives the utmost flavor to the brew. Stylish design has me leaving it on ny counter. 7 different brew temperatures assures I always have the perfect temperature according to my tea choice. Made extremely well. You feel the quality when you pick it up. I'm in love with a Kettle and it's opening my taste to other varieties of teas. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The heat settings for each type are perfect.. I didn't even know I needed that either.. the taste of my different types after using the proper setting and temp have made a HUGE difference.
