Ah, the versatility of tea! From your morning cup of energizing Earl Grey, to your nightly cup of relaxing chamomile, teatime can be all the time — if you're as obsessed we are. For many of us, tea is what gets us excited to start the day. For others, we grab that steaming cup when life begins to feel just a bit too overwhelming. That first hint of warmth can calm us down during a hectic moment and give us that needed pause that brings us back into the present.
Of course, not all of us have the time and energy to sit down for that classic Downton Abbey tea time that we all so envy. For those of us who can sit down for tea and crumpets, more power to you, but every tea drinker's needs are as varied as the tea leaves themselves. Some of us crave that quick and easy electric kettle boil, others want that ear-splitting whistle that brings us back to past tea times with our parents and grandparents. No matter your aesthetic or demands, we've got you covered with this list of 11 of the best tea kettles on the market right now.
To cover all of our bases, we've included both classic and electric tea kettles, as we know everyone's preference is different. Keep reading below to get the ultimate round-up of top-rated kettles that offer anything from light and airy builds to quick and easy brews. Cheers!
