Open lid and fill the kettle with water. Be careful to not exceed the "max"
mark. Place tea leaves inside the infuser basket. Return kettle to base, plug
into outlet, and push the button that corresponds to the tea that you're
steeping. The button will blink, indicating activity. Once the kettle reaches a
temperature that's perfect for your tea, it will circulate water through the
infuser basket. When the infusion is complete, the button will glow solid, the
kettle will beep, and your tea will keep warm for one hour. To end the 'keep
warm' cycle, press the glowing button once more. To heat water without steeping
tea, please press 'heat only" button followed by your desired temperature. The
kettle will heat water and keep it warm for one hour. To stop, press the glowing
button once again. Kettle is off when no buttons are blinking or
