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

My immediate method is a teapot on an electric cooktop. But, since I live in Connecticut, about 60% of my electricity comes from nuclear power, and the rest from a mix of hydroelectric (from HydroQuebec), methane and coal (icky) fired steam plants, my tea is heated, mostly, by nuclear fission.
