Best Teapots for loose leaf tea
After thousands of years, the traditional teapot still brews up the perfect cup. Here are some secrets for preparing the highest quality tea using a teapot.
Teapots for tea types:
We recommend that you dedicate one teapot for only one type of tea: one for black, green and herbals. Pots can become seasoned by black teas and if you prepare other styles of tea, like green, in the same pot, it may affect the flavor.
Teapot serving size:
Other factors to consider when thinking about tea preparation is how many cups you will be serving. It is best to have both a small and large teapot - a small one for single cup and a larger one for multiple cup servings.
The Mighty Leaf Tea Pouch:
Mighty Leaf Tea Pouches are designed to accommodate 12 oz of water or a small teapot that usually matches the same quantity.
Teapots are made out of a variety of materials including cast-iron, clay, glass, porcelain, silver and earthenware. Whether it is tea culture in China, Japan or other countries, each respective tradition involves preparing and drinking tea in distinctive way, including the kind of teapot used.
Japanese cast-iron teapots, also known as Tetsubin, were originally used in the home for boiling water and heat. Crafted using casting traditions dating back to the mid 17th century, these teapots are thought to be modeled on copper kettles commonly used during the time period. In the 18th century, the Tetsubin’s use and function evolved in conjunction with the introduction of a new tea ritual - preparing tea as we know it today by infusing tea leaves in boiling water.
Before, tea was primarily consumed in powdered form, also known as Matcha. During 17th century, a Chinese monk traveling in Japan brought a new rolled form of tea that had replaced powdered tea in China. A tea merchant in Uji, Kyoto, Nagatani Soen invented a new Japanese method of steaming, drying and rolling green tea during the 18th century. This tea and style of processing became known as Sencha.
The ritual of drinking tea in Japan become more casual and accessible to the everyday person versus the more formal Japanese Tea Ceremony that involved Matcha and specific tea utensils hailing from China. The use of the Testubin accompanied the rise of a new tea market in Japan that catered to a growing tea drinking public. In the 19th century, Tetsubin became a kind of status symbol as multitudes of handmade and intricate designs flourished. Over time, the teapots were viewed as works of art, handcrafted by master artisans using well honed skills and traditional cast iron forging techniques passed on from generation to generation.
The Tetsubin teapots are well suited for brewing green teas like Dragonwell and Kyoto Rice. Often fired with enamel interiors, these long lasting teapots do not impart any flavor, retain heat well and heat evenly. With a metal infuser, the cast-iron teapots are also easy to use and make monitoring the steeping time simple.What degree is a gap wedge? How far grow light from seedlings? Why vacancies occur?
