In the last month, I've become a tea drinker. I'm new to this, but I'm ready to do it right. A few questions inside.

My standard cup has been some (cheap) green tea, a little almond milk and a little sugar. I'd like some advice on upgrading my tea experience. I work from home and have a stove, microwave, fridge, etc.
1. Kettle? I used to have a cheap one from Target, but it rusted very quickly (even with proper care), so I'm looking for one that will last a while. I've been boiling water on the stove in a pan.
2. Best green tea? This is my first foray into green tea. I've been drinking an old box of Bigelow I had in the back of the cupboard. I know there's better out there.
3. Brewing methods? I'll probably use bagged tea for now until I see if this tea thing really sticks for me. The internet has different opinions on how long to leave the bag, whether to dunk or not, etc. What works for you?
