Traveling Tea Kettles...

Today I am sharing a post that has nothing to do with cozy mysteries but everything to do with tea and traveling. I am not someone who travels regularly but when I do I am someone who likes to have the comforts of home with me. My son is going on a school trip to Europe shortly and my mother in law took us to a travel store. I did not expect to enjoy it quite as much as I did nor did I think I would find something I never knew I always needed!

We are a family of 5 so most trips we take we do by vehicle. I am a huge fan of Nascar even though we live in Canada and last year over spring break we drove two 14 hour days to Arizona so that I could go to a race and share my love of racing with the boys who were promises a trip to universal studios on the way home. Those long drives would have been so much more delightful had I been able to make and enjoy a fresh pot of tea while my husband drove. Now let me tell you that I was sitting on a huge stretch of highway in Nevada thinking I really wish you could make tea in this car, with nothing and no services along this long stretch this little kettle would have come in quite handy!

When we travel I bring a small kettle with us it holds about 750 mls a very small pot of tea or two mugs worth. It is a bit bulky and still something I make room for in my suitcase and in the car. So imagine my surprise to learn they make one that FOLDS DOWN for space saving! This one I found on Bed Bath and Beyond's website and one I want to buy! If you are a traveling tea drinker you know that the coffee pot in the hotel room just doesn't get it done! Check this one out (they have a white one too) by clicking here 

These to items are enough for me to want to pick up and hit the road! How about you? I would love to hear from you if you have had any experience with any of these or if you have some great traveling tea tips for us today.
