Tea nerds: question about heating water for tea

I'm just getting started drinking actual good loose tea. At the fancy-shmancy tea store they looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested microwaving the water to heat it for tea.
The scoffed and said that microwaving "flattens the water molecules."
This is crap, right? Heating is heating, no?
