Our Tea Expert Glass Teapots are practical and easy to use anywhere.
Going through the motions of loose leaf tea brewing can be very joyful and calming - especially if you have the right equipment. Being able to see the tea as it brews is the great advantage of using glassware. By assessing the colour of the tea as it steeps, you'll be able to brew the tea to the exact strength that meets your individual preference.
The teapot is made from mouth blown, heat-resistant and durable borosilicate glass.
In addition to its multi-functionality, the teapot has a modern and elegant design.
The teapot is equipped with:
Size - H: 10cm
Pot - Top Diameter: 7.2cm; Bottom Diameter: 10cm
Lid - Top Diameter: 8.5cm; Bottom Diameter: 6.5cm
Usable capacity - 500ml (1-2 cups of tea)
Packaging - Comes in a beautiful The Tea Makers of London presentation Box, ideal for a gift.
Upkeep and usage
If the ambient temperature in the kitchen is low, warming up the teapot before use will help the teapot last longer. This will also help the tea to steep more effectively as the water will not lose heat when poured into the teapot.
The glass is less likely to break or shatter if you warm it up gradually. Once you have poured in the boiling water, avoid resting your teapot on cold surfaces. Instead, rest your teapot a trivet or kitchen towel.
