Teapots are an easy way to brew your tea. When the tea saint, Lu Yu, first experimented with the best ways to prepare tea, he used a Chaozhou teapot, which was a clay teapot on top of a charcoal heated clay stove. Today we offer many types of teapots made from many different materials, each having their benefits. Kyusu, or side pour teapots, are a style that developed out of Japan. Some people like to use glass to see their tea as it brews, whereas others prefer a more decorative DeHua or Jingdezhen ceramic. Whatever you choose, know that your can purchase your teapot with confidence from us. Some of these tea pots can be used directly on an electric burner and others cannot. Please be careful with your tea pot, as each is handcrafted and a work of art.
