Teapots come in a variety of forms, materials and styles. One of the most popular, modern and common types of pots are glass teapots.
A typical high quality glass teapot such as those we sell here at LUPICIA is made from high quality temperature-resistant borosilicate glass. All glass pots come with a strainer, either built into the neck or spout, or as a removable infuser basket that sits inside the opening of the glass pot.
One of the world's best selling glass teapots, which we highly recommend, is our Chacha Kyusu Maru Glass Teapot, available in two sizes.
If you only have one teapot and will use it for various types of tea, then a glass teapot is your best option. This is because the tea oils and flavours do not stick to the inside glass surface.
Being transparent, glass teapots have the advantage of allowing you to see inside the pot and observe the tea leaves as they infuse.
Also, glass teapots are very easy to clean - simply use hot water to rinse the inside of the teapot (never use soap on the inside) and a mild soap and hot water on the outside
These modern and very convenient forms of glass teapots are becoming increasingly popular around the world. Such "hybrid" or "all-in-one" designs allow you to both brew or infuse your tea and drink it all in the same mug or cup.
Our popular One Cup Tea Maker is a perfect example. Or for something more colourful and stylish, why not consider our series of Mon Pote glass teapot/mugs (available in orange, raspberry red and green) feature food-grade silicone strainers and LUPICIA design motifs etched into the glass.
