If they've already got cabinets full of tea, consider a beautiful tea maker like this one from Breville. Notice I said tea maker, not hot water heater. True tea devotees—or just people that care enough to look it up—know that specific tea requires varying brewing temperatures and times. This machine takes some of the guesswork out of the process, and gives you the freedom to add custom settings. It keeps your tea warm for up to an hour, lets you schedule a time for it to start automatically in the morning, and—my favorite part—automatically dips tea when it's brewing and then lifts the basket up once it's done. Presets on the face allow you to choose between green, herbal, black, oolong, white, and custom. And, yes, you could also just boil hot water with this thing. $218.
