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.
**Borosilicate glass - Borosilicate glass is made mainly of silica (70-80%) and boric oxide (7-13%) with smaller amounts of the alkalis (sodium and potassium oxides) and aluminium oxide.
