I put my water in the microwave most of the time. Otherwise, I run the water through the coffeemaker. To keep the water from having any coffee taste in it, remove the filter basket, remove the little round pee thing (whatever it's called that sprays water into the basket), and use a 4-cup glass measuring cup for the water to pee into. The coffee pot sometimes tastes like coffee. I then pour myself a cup of hot water and put my tea bag in it. I also like this method when I'm using my small, ceramic teapot. I've got plenty of water to fill my pot and let a tea bag set in it to brew. Then my cup also is filled with water and a tea bag sets in it to brew. A lot of the time, I use the same tea bag. I first put it into the cup and then let it set in the teapot longer.
