Boil water!

Don't you know that anything over 95°C is an accident waiting to happen and a lawsuit you're guaranteed to lose?

The facts that: a) tea tastes lousy made with less than boiling water; and b) 95°C water will still damage your private parts irreversibly if you insist on driving your car with a cup of it gripped betwixt your thighs; in no way absolves you from being seen to take Health & Safety seriously, by avoiding the use of boiling water in your beverages, no matter how pointless it may be.

    Clearly the only good reason to boil water is to calibrate your thermometer, allowing a more accurate measurement of 95C.

    (This should only be attempted by correctly trained personnel wearing appropriate clothing for the handling of such hazardous materials.)
