The Right Glass Teapot and Brown Betty
These are the essential wares that you will need to prepare and drink excellent black or green tea.
However, you will need a clear glass teapot if you are going to prepare a flowering or blossom tea. You will also need glass mugs to completely enjoy the elegance of your flowering tea.With so many teapots and mugs available in the market today, it is difficult sometimes to choose one that will be suitable for your needs.So here are some tips that could help you select the best teapot and tea mugs.
The first thing you have to do is to identify your needs.If you are planning to serve tea to a large group of people, then you better purchase a large glass teapot so you can avoid the hassle of constantly refilling the teapot with hot water.
On the other hand, if your tea ritual is dedicated only to family members and occasional guests of the house, medium sized glass teapot or a personalized clear teapot would be best for you. It is always advisable to purchase a glass teapot because you can easily use it to display the decorative properties of flowering or blossom teas.
It is also best to choose a clear teapot that has a special thermal control system. The thermal control will keep your tea warm but the surface areas of the teapot would be cool to the touch. This type of teapot is ideal to use during tea parties and special occasions.
Because the tea will stay warm, you will not need to go frequently to the kitchen to reheat the tea or to get fresh hot water. It is also best to choose a glass teapot that is hand blown. A hand blown glass is more elegant, seamless and would be very durable for many years of use. A hand blown clear teapot could be a little expensive but its quality would be excellent.
Glass mugs are also important for your tea ritual. You cannot enjoy the luxurious taste of a good tea if you will drink it from ordinary mug or cup. So you should select elegant glass mugs or glass cups that will complement your teapot.
It is always best to have a full set of glass mugs so you will be always ready to serve tea to lots of people. The advantage of having glass cups is that you can use the cups as decorative objects. This is particularly true if your glass mugs have personalized designs. You should also have a full set of glass infuser mug. A set of glass infuser mug will be very handy when you serve loose leaf tea.
Choosing the right teapot and mugs for your tea is very important. You cannot enjoy your tea time and tea party if you do not have excellent teapot and mugs. You have to remember that tea drinking is an art form and a ritual. So you will definitely need excellent sets of teapots and glass mugs in order to fully enjoy the benefits of tea drinking.
It can be presented either as a stand alone gift item, or as a key element of a tea themed gift basket I believe they make excellent house warming gifts I'm sure there are other gift giving occasions when a glass teapot would also make a wonderful present but this is the first occasion that always leaps into my mind because I associate buying a house or just moving home with tea that sounds odd I know but it's true.
It was tradition back in the Manchester neighborhood where I grew up that when ever new people moved in to a house on our street, while they were still unpacking someone would load up a big metal tray with a pot of freshly brewed tea and usually a few butties and biscuits (sorry sandwiches and cookies) and march across the street knock on the front door and leave it with them, the pot was always a big brown betty, a glass teapot would of been an object of science fiction back then.
The newcomer got to keep the teapot or at least for a while until the next new people moved in then it was their turn to take over the cookies and pass along the teapot. No one had any idea who started it but Gran who had lived there for over 20 years said she got the pot when she and Granddad first moved in.
It was just a nice gesture that I know made people feel welcomed by their neighbors, sadly we're in different times now where people prefer to keep more to themselves.
