They offer a variety of advantages over their plastic and glass favorite counterparts. These little beauties are also called brewing vessels and are used in place of a teapot or gaiwan.The actual purpose of clay teapot is really just to compensate for the general flatness of the flavor of green tea.

Clay teapots are the best choice for brewing loose-leaf Earl Grey. The clay absorbs the tea’s flavor, which gives a unique taste that blends well with the bergamot of an Earl Grey. Clay also retains temperature well, so your tea stays hot longer than a porcelain teapot, and this allows the aroma to keep infusing into your tea.

Porcelain teapots are the preferred vessel for steeping various types of tea leaves around the world. The Chinese began using porcelain teaware as early as the Tang Dynasty (618–907 CE), and in due course, teapots were produced in the famous kilns at Jingdezhen. The majority of tea consumed in Europe and its colonies during the 17th through 19th centuries was steeped in porcelain by preference; silver teapots were reserved for display purposes or the consumption of black tea.

Silver teapots

Silver teapots are relatively heavy and are made from multiple parts. In the past, these silver teapots were used to boil water in order to make tea. Nowadays, most people don’t typically boil water to make their tea. Instead, they prefer using either a coffee maker or an electric kettle with a heating element to help heat up the water.Nevertheless, silver teapots were the fashion in which tea was consumed during the 18th and early 19th centuries. It was believed that the technology used to make white silver made it possible to make a teapot that would keep the tea warm for longer than a black one.

Maybe it’s the knowledge that you don’t need to worry about any toxic metals corroding into your tea or coffee. Glass teapots have so many benefits over traditional stainless steel ones. They are attractive, easier to clean, and just look more sophisticated.
