Teapot

 If you are a tea addict, and it is impossible for you to start the day the day (or end the day) without a cup a tea you will surely be delighted by our selection of teapots!

Tea: this ancestral drink is very popular throughout the globe. Black tea, white tea, red tea, or green tea, this beverage is today one of the most popular hot drinks in the world! Indeed, there is nothing better than a good tea to wake up in the morning, soothe her senses in the late afternoon and even enjoy a quiet moment (a reading session, a snack with friends or a break at work).

And of course, you need a good teapot for making tea! This container with a lid probably comes from ancient China. In Europe, it appeared during the 17th century when the passion for the Chinese pieces of art was at its summum. These Chinese art objects which were very much appreciated by collectors loved during the orientalist move, and the teapot was obviously part of it.

Physiognomy of this cult tea accessory

The teapot is in fact the ideal container for tasting tea as it allows the tea to infuse or cool slightly during tea service. The shape of the teapot does not influence the quality of the tea, for against it is necessary to select the type of material and the dimensions of the teapot according to the use that one wants to make of it.

The teapot has three parts: the container, the lid, and the spear. Sometimes a tea leaf filter is added under the lid or at the spout on the inside.

There are two main teapots families: teapots with memory and teapots without memory. Memory teapots are the traditional unglazed terracotta teapots because the porous material absorbs particles of tea tannins that change its taste and aroma when used later. The teapot without memory include all other types of teapots: the teapot cast iron, porcelain teapot, glass teapot, teapot stainless steel and others (aluminum, plastic, acrylic, etc.).
