Japanese glass teapots are simple and elegant, which makes them perfect for everyday use. They come in many shapes and sizes, with bamboo handles, cast iron teapots, glass infusers, and more. Glass teapots are great because they allow you to see the color of your tea as it brews, so you can easily judge whether or not it’s done steeping. No matter what style of glass teapot you want, you’ll find everything you need to know in this comprehensive guide on Japanese glass teapots with bamboo handles.
The Benefits of Using a Glass Teapot
Using a glass teapot makes it easier to see how much tea is left in your pot. When using an opaque or ceramic teapot, it’s easy to accidentally make more tea than you need without realizing that you’re out of tea (and will have to make another pot). Using a clear glass teapot helps reduce waste and eliminates any unpleasant surprises. A popular option among Japanese customers, Murata’s Japanese Glass Teapots are made from borosilicate glass with a bamboo handle, which allows for a comfortable grip and easy pouring. Using thick glass ensures that your teas retain their heat for extended periods, meaning you can enjoy freshly brewed green or black tea throughout your day.
How To Clean Your Tea Pot
When you first purchase your teapot, you might want to give it a quick rinse with hot water. This will allow for any impurities that have fallen into it to be removed. After use, it is recommended that you wash your teapot with hot water. You can then put it in your dishwasher or simply wash it by hand. In either case, remember not to use abrasive scrubbers and sponges on its surface; you risk scratching off some of its paint if you do so. Moreover, even if there are no scratches present on its surface, repeated abrasive scrubbing could weaken or remove its finish entirely. The bottom line: don’t aggressively clean your Japanese glass teapots; take care of them instead!
Types Of Tea Pots
If you’re looking for a new teapot, Japanese glass teapots are a great option. They’re made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass, which means they can go right into your microwave or oven if you need to reheat water or tea. Heat resistance is also nice for use as an iced tea pitcher because it allows you to make cold brews with ease. You can even choose between different designs like bamboo handles, stainless steel, and food-grade silicone.
Choose The Right Tea Pot
The perfect teapot can make all the difference between a great tea experience and an average one. Finding your ideal teapot will depend on your preferences, such as whether you prefer loose-leaf or bagged teas, what temperature of water you like to brew with, and how many cups of tea you typically drink at a time. To ensure that your new teapot doesn’t just stay in its box collecting dust, it’s important to know how to choose which is right for you.
