Re: Stainless steel question

I wish I had found this discussion before I bought my VonShef teapot. I loved the look and the fact that it's unbreakable, since I wanted to use it at work. Unfortunately, all of my lovely Adagio teas get tainted when I brew in this stainless steel pot. I heat the water in an electric kettle then brew in the VonShef (which holds six cups to last me all day!) and keep it on a mug warmer to enjoy nice and hot at leisure. But, no matter what tea I brew (pu erh, lapsang souchong, irish breakfast), they all develop an "off" taste. I will take it home and try a good scouring, and do some further experimenting at home. I hope I can figure it out because it's really a lovely pot! :cry:

Reason: This topic has been split to keep the conversation current and relevant. It was originally a reply to a 9 year old post.

This split removes the context of the post, which was replying to something. This post by itself is unanswerable. Old posts are not necessarily irrelevant.

Sometimes reviving an old post makes a lot of sense. I don't think these rules were meant to be black and white.
