Perhaps the tea lover you are buying for is more of a traditionalist. A copper teakettle is always a popular favourite. Then again, a high quality Cuisinart tea kettle may be the best choice, allowing him or her to create that perfectly brewed cup of tea anytime with little fuss and muss. A classically styled stainless steel tea pot is a good choice, too.
Different kinds of teapots have been developed from around the globe. Region by region, you will see different variations of materials used for this important container. In the East, most people use teapots made from porcelain, while here in the West, most of our teapots are made from cast iron. Although used just for brewing tea, this cast iron tea kettle now has more elaborate and different functions. It can be used as an ornament of the house, a status quo, and even the center piece of your tea party. From the simple kettle, it has radically extended its nature to a whole new and vast different thing.
Generally, a kettle is a type of pot that was the brainchild of someone who needed a proper utensil to use over a fire or on a stove for cooking purposes. The word "kettle" was derived from Latin. "Catillus" is Latin for "a deep dish or pan used for cooking". You can search back in history for kitchen lore and find that every home, be it rich or poor, had a kettle of some sort in the kitchen.
Since copper can easily be beaten into different shapes, you can find some beautifully carved copper kettles in home décor or lifestyle stores. Everything from simple, traditional plain copper designs to combinations with wood or bone, and fancier carved kettles are available in the market today. As pretty to look at as it is functional, this kettle can add a touch of antique beauty and old world charm to your kitchen. So even if you are not one of those who would use it to actually utilize it for preparing tea, you could always consider using it as an inexpensive decorative item for your kitchen counter or dining area.
