A small glass teapot by Japanese glassware maker Hario. This teapot holds just 180ml and is best suited for those seeking to explore the different flavor profiles of Japanese teas and brew in a traditional, Japanese style (brewing the tea leaves in a small amount of water multiple times). This is our preferred everyday teapot when we are looking for a no fuss, reliable brew and delicious pour.
Brews approximately 180ml (6oz) of tea. Dishwasher and microwave safe (excluding the metal tea strainer).
Many customers inquire about alternative teapots to the ceramic ones we carry. When brewing green tea, small changes to temperature or steep time can dramatically affect whether your brew is sweet or bitter. Therefore, when searching for glass teapots to offer, we had several requirements in mind:
It must retain heat well.
It must allow the tea leaves to fully expand while brewing.
It must be easy to clean!
It took a while to find a pot that brews green teas as well as our unglazed kyusus, but we're excited to share a line of glassware that is both beautiful and brews teas beautifully. Founded in 1921, Hario is best known for its sturdy, heatproof glass and modern coffee and teaware designs.
