If you enjoy making flowering teas, then a glass teapot is a must, as it displays the magical unfurling of the tea-flower to perfection.
The teakettle pictured left is by Grosche, a Canadian company that specialises in making glass teapots and glass tea kettles.
All their tea kettles are made from tough thermal borosilicate glass that is safe on the stove and in the microwave. They all have removable glass infusers. You can thus place the glass kettle directly on the stove, boil your water, and then add the tea to the infuser and let it steep. Or just use an electric kettle to boil water and pour it into the teapot in the normal way. When ready, you just pour – no need for separate tea strainers to hold back the tea leaves. The other benefit of the glass is that it does not retain flavors or smells, which means all you can taste is the brew you are making.
You can hand wash your teapot, you place it in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Their glass teapots come in a number of different shapes, so you can choose the one that suits you best
The infusers in the Grosche glass teapots are big enough to allow flowering tea balls to unfurl to their maximum. If you’ve never seen how a flowering tea ball unfurls, take a look at the following video:
The flower tea-balls are all made from green tea leaves, which are hand stitched together with herbal flowers such as jasmine, resulting in a very pretty display as you make the tea, and delicious flower fragrances as you pour it. If you are a green tea enthusiast, the flower tea-balls will enhance your daily tea ceremony.
