I keep a kettle at work as well, and do get a bit paranoid about the noise it makes! Sounds like a freight train when it is quite in the office :)

But our tea is worth it! I use Adagio's UtiliTEA. Not only can control the temperature better, but less trips to the break room for water!

For five years I've been using the hot water spigot on the coffee maker in the break room.

Then I was treated to a GongFu ceremony and I believe the actual quote was, "Oh my gods, I've been doing it wrong all these years."

I now own a UtiliTea tea kettle (and was pleased to see that the GongFu master also has one) and I drag it to work every Monday, and take it home Thursday nights so I have it on my WFH day and the weekends. The construction of that specific kettle is such that it would be very difficult for a fire to happen. I take the kettle itself off the base every night when I go home anyways.

Anyways, I've been blissfully tea'd out since then. I ran an experiment with 1999 pu'erh mini-nests and the hot water spigot and BLECH. No way. Your own kettle is the way to go! And it's quite the conversation starter, too.

at work the kettle most dirty.
We have a Microwave oven.
The Water is clean from home.
A smal pot, 60 s into the oven o.k.

Is this a way?
