    Thank heavens the continentals don't usually take milk in their tea. They'd probably put it in first!

    Swedes do not use kettles, there is no need they use a saucepan. The wife’s relatives get excited if you give them a kettle as a present.

    I'll have you know the saucepan seems to work quite well. After three electric kettles that's what we resorted to for the best part of a year XD. Then moved to a stove top whistle kettle.

    Mind you, tea leaves in a kettle o.O. Wha!? Nu. That is not how we make tea!

    So you Poms haven't heard of Billy Tea then?

    Best done over an open campfire rather than stove top which has a bit of a glamping touch to it.....
