In a nation full of coffee fiends tea can often times get overlooked. However, tea can be just as warm, comforting, and delicious. Also, depending on the type of tea one chooses to drink, it can be a lot healthier, too. From green tea and English breakfast tea to more exotic flavors, tea comes in a seemingly endless amount of varieties. Yogi Tea’s Honey Chai Turmeric is particularly delicious and worth a try. Tea really deserves a lot more credit than what it gets. However, while enjoying a cup can simply mean heating up some hot water and dropping in a teabag, the best way to make tea is via a good teapot.
Having the right teapot can aid in achieving the perfect water temperature and steeping the tea for the ideal amount of time. These are two areas where tea-makers typically go wrong. Thus, we compiled a list of the very best teapots available so that your brews will always be blissful.
WHY IT’S THE BEST – The traditional Japanese-inspired Suyika cast iron teapot is ideal for those needing a teapot that will not only aid in making a quality cup of tea but will also stand the test of time. This teapot was crafted with fine attention to detail. The iron is of top quality and the handle was thoughtfully wrapped in an attractive twine.
Additionally, this teapot comes with an infuser that can accommodate loose tea leaves. Hence, you can be rest assured that your tea will be ready as soon as you hear the whistle. The Suyika can also be conveniently used on any and all types of stoves.

WHY IT’S THE BEST – The HiWare is perfect for those looking for versatility in their teapot. Similar to the Suyika, the HiWare comes with an infuser so that you can steep your tea as your water heats up. However, what’s great about this glass pot is that it can be used both on the stove and in the microwave. So, on days when you are really craving a good cup of tea and lack the patience to wait for it to steep on the stove, you can just pop this teapot in the microwave and be indulging in your delicious brew in no time flat.
Another great thing about this teapot is that it is also safe to put into the refrigerator. So, if you are in the mood for some top-quality ice tea you can ditch the powered stuff and go right for the real thing. What’s more, is that this kettle was completely handcrafted and was constructed to include a non-drip spout. It also sports an ergonomically ideal design.
