Best Glass Teapots with Infusers
Teapots with Infusers make a Better Drink of Tea
Tea drinkers know that the best cup of tea comes from fresh, loose leaf tea left to steep in an infuser in purified water at just the right temperature - long past are the days when pouring boiling water over a tea bag in a mug produces a satisfying cup of tea. As passionate tea drinkers have studied what makes the best brew, new products have come onto the market, offering consumers a wide assortment of options.
Glass teapots with infusers are both stylish and practical. They offer the tea infuser for delicious, whole brewed taste, and the glass acts as both an insulator and a transparent window to watch the tea steep - black teas turn red and brown, green teas turn yellow and dark green. Tea drinkers know that watching their tea allows them to identify the tea's strength before they even taste it. Glass tea pots are the best for tea drinking - they offer both the theater and the taste.
