Though teapots have been for a long time, the design has certainly been improved. Today, there are a ton of different teapots to choose from – including ones that steep tea, boil water on demand, and even ones that don’t need to be put on a stove to work. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best traditional-style teapots on the market right now. Here are some things that you should know before you start shopping.
Material: What is the body of the teapot made of? The most popular options here are stainless steel (it won’t rust and cleans easily) or glass, which is aesthetically pleasing and holds heat a little longer.
Color: What color is the teapot? Stainless steel pots are going to be silver most of the time, while ceramic pots can be just about any color. Glass teapots are, of course, going to be clear for aesthetic purposes.
Capacity: How many quarts of tea can the pot hold? This will also tell you how much you’re able to make at once with the particular teapot you’re looking at. Use this information if you’re making tea for multiple people.
Infuser: Some teapots on this list come with an infuser, which means that you can use it to brew all of your favorite loose leaf teas. Having one included means you won’t have to purchase it separately!
Dishwasher Safe: Being able to throw your teapot in the dishwasher when you’re done using it can be invaluable to save time. We’ll let you know here if it’s safe to be washed in a dishwasher or by hand.
Whistling: The whistling sound a teapot makes when your tea is done is a traditional thing that most people will look for. We’ll let you know if the teapot makes a whistling noise when it’s finished brewing here.
With that information, we can show you our teapot reviews. We’ve done a ton of research to bring you the best teapots from all the different types so you can make an informed decision. Get your milk and honey ready, because you’re going to want to brew up a fresh, hot pot of tea with these amazing kettles! Our top pick and budget pick are our favorites, so check them out first!
