This stylish and modern glass tea pot with infuser is perfect for those who wish to make just one cup of tea at a time yet still produce a full-bodied tasty beverage. The design is eye catching yet subtle and this tea pot will fit in anywhere, complimenting homes and offices around the world.
The use of glass gives the pot a transparent finish which allows you to see the brewing process taking place right before your eyes. This is an anticipatory prelude to the tea being served and gives the drinker a chance to witness the leaves and flowers unfurling and flavoring the water with their scintillating and refreshing aromas and essence. As the brewer can see the infusion taking place and the tea being prepared through the glass, they have more control over how deep the finished product will taste. Compared to tea pots of this type that are made of non-transparent materials.
How to use this glass tea pot with infuser
Brew your loose leaves in the infuser by adding water at the right temperature. After the brewing time has passed, simply press the button on top to let the resulting tea liquor flow in the tea pot. That's it, your tea is ready to be served.
With a capacity of 380 ml, this pot is the ideal size for brewing delicious and full flavored tea in single portions. However, these small capacity tea pots with infusers are also perfect for those who wish to partake in the activity of flash or gongfu brewing. This is a method of brewing that is common in China and Taiwan and requires the use of less leaves in relation to the water used, while also shortening the infusion time which in turn increases the amount of brews possible from one serving of tea leaves.
While this might sounds like a strange premise, gong fu, or high skill, brewing as it is translated, allows for a richer and more pronounced flavor and aroma. If you would like to try your hand at gong fu, or high skill, brewing then a small glass teapot with infuser such as this is the perfect apparatus to get started. As this process uses less water than regular brewing and infusing, a smaller loose tea maker like this one will actually allow you to serve more than one cup at a time, thanks to the smaller portions used when making gong fu tea. When brewing in this style, first add water to the leaves for 20 second and then discard the water. This will heat up the tea pot and open the leaves for a better 'gongfu' infusion. Afterwards, it is the best to steep the tea for a shorter period: ranging from 35 to 60 seconds for black tea, through to 10 to 25 seconds for white and green teas. As the amount of water used is less, the flavors will still be as wholesome and enjoyable, despite the shorter steeping times.
If you want a loose tea maker with a small capacity that is perfect for single serving brews, as well as giving you the opportunity to serve high skill gong fu brews, then this small capacity glass teapot with infuser is just what you are looking for.
