Well, I imagine that none of my pots would be considered "generic" in that they are handmade by skilled artists in Japan and China. I use a thermometer to gauge water temp when less than just off-boil temperatures are required. Many of the oolongs I like are brewed very hot so I don't worry about the exact temp. Still there are other ways to manage heat: an intermediate cooling vessel, the height you pour the water from, the tea pots ability to retain heat, etc, etc. There are also water boilers that have temperature settings.
