as i read somewhere youre not supposed to have it boiling. Actually think it was in a Murakami book where he described someone making coffee with not boiling water that persuaded me to make the change.
For tea i just wait til it's boiled though.
stuck with me ever since
but then i was like 'but it won't kill all the germs' so i still always boil the water
its just making me realise how boring the stuff im trying to post is when i think about the effort of retyping stuff.
as if to say, " do you really agree with that?".
like a main course followed by a dessert
and warm hands
check your privilege
in the microwave.
wish we had a microwave
looks like it's just about started to boil but the kettle hasn't yet clicked off, because i'm too impatient to wait the remaining 5 or so seconds. i think this is reasonable.
makes an unbearable high pitched noise when it boils, and if you take it off and put it back on again then it makes the noise twice
and i'm just holding it like fucking hell you're clearly boiling just click off ffs. hate doing it before it's clicked off.
Wish I had some whisky.
tea doesn't brew properly unless it's at boiling temp
also you aren't supposed to re-boil water.
something to do with oxygen.
if you don't pour the water as it's just boiled and leave it even a short while, throw it away. throw the kettle away just to be sure.
my gran's kettle is see through you can watch the water boiling
So the button can't pop out and it keeps on boiling. With the ultimate aim of making the water so hot it exceeds the temperature of the sun and destroys the planet. But then I got bored, so I just let it turn off.
would probably end up going cold too quickly
you need ample brewing time.
especially important if your mug has a large surface area. all that hot, leaving the cup at once.
but the switch hasn't clicked off yet. rapid heart rate, sweaty palms, it happens.
just as nice
to the nearest waterfall, cup and sup until quenched.
Bit surprised you use electricity and are helping to prop up the global multi-national pottery industry to be honeest.
