Electric Kettle

For the person at the top of your list, surprise them with the electric kettle of their dreams! Choose from our Stagg EKG Electric Kettle or our NEW Corvo EKG Electric Kettle.

Each tea has an ideal steep temperature and to get the most from our premium teas it's best to ensure your water is as close to that temperature as possible. These kettles have an electronically controlled temperature setting, so when we say that Genmaicha is best brewed at 175° F, you can be sure you're brewing at 175° F.

They boast 1200 Watts of heating power and a 60-minute hold time, so not only can they enjoy that cuppa as soon as possible, they can make another one without delay.
