in thread I usually boil water for tea using a(n) ...

If you're backpacking, I'd recommend a JetBoil. 2 cups of boiling water in 2 minutes, the device is light, cools down fast, it's really the way to go. I bought one in 2011, and have taken it on every other camping trip I've been on, backpacking or not. Then again, I'm a big coffee drinker, so Starbucks Via packets are nice to have in the backcountry...

        If you're backpacking,

    My last backpacking trip was in 2002 with a bunch of youth from our church. My knees won't deal with backpacking any more unfortunately.

      That's no fun, sorry to hear that.

      I have used a JetBoil for quickly boiling water on regular campouts as well, sometimes to impress youth campers, sometimes just to brew up a cup of coffee because I wanted one. Much easier than turning on the stove or starting a fire. And way cooler. :)
