Types of Teapots and Teakettles

Style and function are the first aspects to consider in tea making. If you’re an avid tea drinker, chances are your teapot or teakettle will sit on your stove top or kitchen counter each day. You’ll want to choose a style that fits your kitchen space and decor. With many functional options available, you can decide how involved you want to be with your tea preparation -- whether you prefer to simply boil water or to maintain full control of water temperature, strength, steep time, and a host of other variables.

Iced tea makers

Electric or non-electric iced tea makers are available. Based on how much of a tea purist you are, determine the features you’d like in either type.

Product Features

Product Features

From simple to sophisticated, your tea-making experience depends on how much money you want to spend and what features you expect from your tea service. A fundamental consideration, such as a glass or plastic carafe for iced tea makers, is a starting point. If you want instant iced tea (in 10 minutes or less), look for makers that brew quickly. Teapots' main features are the material and color you prefer, while teakettles range from those that simply whistle to signal boiling water to those that are programmable.

Iced tea makers

Just like using a coffeemaker for brewing coffee, iced tea makers do the brewing for you. Styles come with either a glass or plastic serving pitcher for easy storage in the refrigerator. Some tea makers feature a simple brew-overnight design, and others include a second brew basket for iced coffee. Brew time is a matter of personal preference. Plan ahead with the overnight-refrigeration method, or make it quickly with a 10-minute brew feature. Each iced tea maker has an optimal brew duration. Other key features include container size and how much tea you’d like to brew with each batch.

Teakettles

A teakettle is designed to sit on the stove top to stew or to plug in for near-boiling water in five minutes or less. Teakettles can deliver the most basic function of boiling water with the stove-top design, or they may feature programmable options such as optimal heat levels for green versus black tea. Other options include a removable jug on electric kettles for cordless pouring. The most critical feature is the heat-resistant handle.

Teapots

Enamel, porcelain, stoneware, and ceramic teapots allow for a bit of flair when steeping tea. Choose the material that best suits you. Features of teapots include style, size, color, and pattern. Do you typically brew tea for one or for several sippers? Individual-serving teapots may come compartmentalized with a steeping pot and a cup. Decide if you want a large or small teapot and how you like to take your tea -- from a fancy porcelain pot or one that matches your everyday dishes.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When purchasing an iced tea maker, teapot, or teakettle, think about how quickly and easily you’d like a cup of tea. Machines can do it all for you, or you can do as much as you’d like. If you’re a sophisticated tea drinker and particular about the strength of your tea, you’ll want to look at buying a maker that matches your tea tastes.

Style and color

Teapots and teakettles come in an abundance of styles and colors. Teapots can look pretty but also need to function well. Some glass teapots feature the tea infuser in the center for a peek inside to watch the tea steep. Copper and stainless steel are popular materials for teakettles.

Fast and easy

Fast-brewing iced tea makers and electric teakettles are the way to go if you’re looking for a quick and easy method to brew tea.

Old-fashioned

A stove-top whistling teakettle is an inexpensive, basic way to brew tea. Buy this product if you’re a tea newbie to test the waters before committing to more expensive equipment.

High-tech

High-tech teakettles are those that have timers for just before the boiling point and can be adjusted based on tea type. Other options may include automatic shutoff and a cordless jug for ease of use.

Asian-influence

Go back to tea’s origins for makers that are designed to brew the perfect cup. Asian teapots may have bamboo handles and feature beautiful, colorful details. You can also purchase authentic Asian teacups, featuring no handles, as part of the set.

Glass versus plastic

For iced tea makers in particular, decide if you want your tea brewed in a glass or plastic container. Both offer advantages in terms of durability and replaceable parts. Some people are sticklers for the taste of tea brewed in glass.
