All the Ways to Pick a Teapot

Mar 18, 2008
As an on line browser and shopper, you will find getting the perfect teapot for yourself is an easy, yet at the same time difficult, task. You will find it simple because you just have to perform a google or yahoo search to locate many pages of teapots to look at. The difficulty will come in choosing just one or two pots to call your own.

Beyond all those pages of teapots, you have more pages of the extras that go to help you with your tea brewing. Lots of strainers and infusers, timers and thermometers, and different bases and removable handles. So many choices to make but so many ways to make your tea sipping more enjoyable.

But even with just the teapots themselves, you will find an almost endless variety of ways to choose a pot. You can start with the what the pots are made from such as glass or metal. There are clay teapots made from whatever clay is local to the pot maker such as the Yxīng teapots of China. You also have beautiful glazed and painted porcelain pots. The material you choose may depend on the tea you drink.

When looking for a tea pot, perhaps the first thing you will notice is all the different shapes they come in. You can find short and tall pots. You can find strange ones made to look like some animal or plant or even a car or plane. If it can be formed to hold water and tea leaves, you will probably find the shape somewhere that you desire.

If you have a decor you wish to match, you will find that color of teapot somewhere. Just about any color or color combination can be found. If nothing else, there is always the basic black of the cast iron Japanese tetsubin or a basic white glazed pot.

And if you want to find yourself a pot from a certain region in the world, you just might be able to locate one. There are pots from Great Britain and Europe. There are teapots from Japan and from China. Thousands are made in the US every year as well. It's just one more thing to consider when thinking about buying a teapot.

Not only has geography left its mark upon the humble, or not-so-humble, teapot. Each era throughout time has left its trace as well. Indeed some believe that the first teapots in Europe were not from China but instead were influenced by the Moorish coffee pots. There were the oval shaped ones of the late 1700s and the drum shapes just before the Napoleonic Wars. Even modernism of the last century impacted the shape of teapots. Whatever your taste, there is a teapot for you.

Lastly, not only will your aesthetic senses decide the teapot for you, but the tea you like to drink will as well. There are so many different factors in choosing a teapot. Sometimes it's simply a matter of saying, "I like that one."
