Quickest way to boil water for tea?

Camp stoves have been discussed at length I'm sure. I love my MSR Dragonfly for most things, but was wondering what's the easiest/smallest setup that will simply boil water for a cup of tea?
I've become hooked on tea, I think it may have come with buying a British bike? During day rides I like to stop occasionally to stretch and would love to have a small setup that can just make a cup o tea.

It should be cheap, with easy/no mess setup, and small enough to fit in a tank bag.

alky stove

not quite as fast as other stoves, but smaller, cheaper, and less mess.

Thermos

Quickest way?

Boil your water at breakfast. Put it in a thermos. Now you have hot water ready for a cupper when ever you stop. If it is not hot enough then simply put the hot water on the stove, less time to heat something up that is already hot.

Its not the fire its the kettle that will make the biggest difference, a kelly kettle has a massive internal surface area to be heated and will boil very quickly.
If you must get a new stove the msr xgk is designed to turn snow into boiling water faster than any other cooker, its rubbish for cooking on but A1 for making boiling water however expensive, a small kelly will give you what you want at a fraction of the cost.

I know this is a uk e bay link but it will give you the idea.

or for a US version have a look at this site

The reviews are not all good but I've been carrying the one that plugs into a 110 volt and I have used it for several years in Mexico. Nice to make almost anything that requires hot water. I don't know anything about the DC plug.
I only use it with a 6 oz stainless camping cup.

when minimalist is what I'm after, and all I need to do is boil watrer, I bring my esbit stove:

not horrifically fast, but certain inexpensive and packs down to the size of a pack of Pall Malls.

swedish army surplus 1 man trangia is a neat indestructible little setup. NOT fast though!
my 29- system trangia with butane burner conversion will boil a pint of water in less than 3 mins though

I must be a bit of a stove nut because I seem to have a bunch of them ranging from alcohol and wood fired to white gas and canister stoves.

It isn't the smallest, lightest or cheapest by a good margin but for outright quickly boiling water without worrying about burning your hands or burning down the tent it is hard to beat the Jetboil.

A MSR Reactor will kick a Jetboil's ass and take its lunch money.

a proper tea break should be made with no hurry. Are scones involved?

Esbit

+1 on the esbit folding stove. As mentioned, it's not quick, but I've never seen anything else that's as small , light, simple, & safe.
