Does anyone know where I can get a glass tea kettle like Howard discusses? Recommendations?

If you can't find them in stores or specialty cooking places, such as the Viking centers, wherever in the world you are located, you can try searching the Web; here's one example:

They also seem to be fairly common on eBay.

Crate and Barrel has an interesting looking porcelain pot and a glass setup at:

and Sur La Table carries an electric Capresso glass tea maker. You might even find an unusual pyrex beaker/glassware in a chemistry lab supply place that piques your interest.

The Republic of Tea also has a nice selection of tea pots, several of them glass.

An example:

This is one of my favorite companies, and the best I've found for tea.

I've been informed that Whole Foods sells at least one type of glass tea pot (at least the one store of which I was told stocks it).

Haven't heard Howard's discussions on tea, but here is my favorite way. Got a my wife's discarded 4 cup coffee maker (2 cup will work). Cleaned it up and out to get rid of coffee taste and smell. Easier to start with new one. Put filter, tea and water. Turned on and that's it. 1 to 4 cups. This one was plastic with a glass pot, but I have seen stainless if plastic turns you off. Easy cleanup, just grab up the filter and throw it away. I have also run a second batch of water through the same tea for another weaker batch. Still good,but weaker. Republic makes several good loose teas. My favorites are Ginger Peach and Mango Celyon. :)

All the Redenta's garden centers sell the same pot Howard uses.

We are fortunate to have a beautiful Ginko tree but have no clue how to brew tea from it. Once read that you should crush a few leaves & add boiling H2O, steep & drink...that produced clear hot H2O, no taste, no color, & we felt that this just wasn't right. Maybe the fall leaves need to be saved & dried for use?

I bought my last teapot (stainless steel with a filter that fits into it) in a Japanese hardware variety store in the International District in Seattle. I wanted something that would hold up and the kids couldn't chip. I have a series of broken (now mended and only good for display on top of my cupboards) teapots. But those Asian shops will have a variety of fine porcelain pots at prices probably considerably more reasonable than you'll find in a garden center.
