        Honest question, I get points regarding ease and other things but when I was in Europe I met like several people who more or less believed that the microwave for tea “boiled it wrong” and basically believed it irradiated the water? Is this common?

          My mother is like that. I think it's rooted in some deep-seated fears from the Cold War era around nuclear technology and radiation. She'd even get paranoid when I'd use the remote control to switch channels while she was walking between me and the TV.

          Of course, there's nothing wrong per se with microwaved water. The issue is more to do with the difficulty of controlling water temperature when you use a microwave. Tea doesn't release its full flavour if the water is too cold and can become bitter due to scorching if the water is too hot.

            For me even though I own a kettle, I only usually have one cuppa in the evening, I've never noticed the different very much but I do like the tradition of boiling in a kettle

          I think it's more to do with tradition than anything

          On a technical note, due to the X pattern with which most microwaves "target" the item being heated, it can have gaps in heat application which creates relative cold spots within the object. The rotating tray is meant to help, but it's why sometimes you'll hit a bit of food that is still frozen or in the case of water, why a tea bag won't steep properly with any consistency.

      A small steel cup with a handle is a good replacement. It's not ideal but it does the job. Avoid glass

          It changes a little the flavour and since mate is something you fiddle with a lot, there's always the chance of you dropping it and breaking it.

    That's only Argies and us mostly, not all sudacas.

    And it's superior to your tea, that's for sure.

      It's not really a special leaf or anything, it's similar to green tea.
      What makes it different is the way you drink it, it takes more technique than normal tea but in exchange you can drink 1-2L in one sitting.
      It's great to fiddle with while you do something else, have you never wanted to just keep drinking something warm but didn't want to have a heart attack from drinking a litter of coffe or getting an ulcer from too much black tea? Mate scratches that itch
