I think the device you are looking for is what we call a 'teasmade' (link
) in the uk. These used to be popular over here , but are less so now (perhaps because we have all started drinking coffee!). However, my sister and I brought my Mum and Dad one for their 40th wedding aniversary a few years back, and they love it. It was similar to this one
I'm afraid I don't know if they are available in the USA ~ you might end up having to import on with the associated adapter?
Hope that helps.
