No, man, just no.
A coffee pot is an interesting and hard to explain thing. It's a bit like tea in that you strain the water through the grounds and don't actually consume thr grounds, but the way to make it is... odd.
My name is Cu Chulainn. Beside the raging sea I am left to moan. Sorrow I am, for I brought down my only son.
For real coffee you use a cafetiere◊ however back to tea:
I really wouldn't be able to have tea through boiling water on a hob, and if you are doing lots you use a teapot. :)
Also a link to the UK Tea Council full of fun facts and stuff about tea from an appropriately British point of view.

By the powers invested in me by tabloid-reading imbeciles, I pronounce you guilty of paedophilia!
I live in the Deep South. Sweet iced tea is almost always in my refridgerator. Boil a pot of water, add Red Diamond tea bags, steep from four to eight hours, and add lots of sugar (2 1/3 cups for a gallon of tea).
An infusion of rooibos and jasmine green, or something with rosebuds. Preferably with honey. On-the-go, strongly-brewed oolong with milk and brown sugar is always nice.
For the most part, though, I just drink large quantities of green tea.
Long time tea drinker...from a family of coffee swillers. Just never got into the taste of coffee. Once I got beyond Lipton's (which was about it for available tea in my small town in my youth), I discovered the joys of taking it without mounds of sugar.
I like buying sets of variety teas (a couple of the tea shops around Minneapolis will sell small packets of miscellaneous loose leaf a dozen for five dollars or so) so that I don't get tired of just one tea type.
I have an assortment of work-related coffee cups and travel mugs; I used to have a very nice Japanese beer advertising mug but it got disappeared after a particularly badly-ending temp job.
