To make the best tasting tea, you will need a kettle in which to boil the water, and a teapot in which to brew the tea. Fill the kettle with fresh water of any temperature, put it on to boil. Do not reboil, as the air has been boiled out and the water will be flat. While the water in the kettle is boiling, put hot water in the teapot to preheat the pot. When the water in the kettle begins to boil pour the water out of the teapot. Add your favorite tea to the teapot. If you are using loose tea, add one more teaspoon for each cup and another for the pot. If you are using teabags, keep in mind that most teabags make 0.5-qt., so add bags according to the number of cups your teapot holds. Bring the teapot to the kettle so the water will be boiling when added to the teapot. Place the lid on the teapot and let steep for three to five minutes. ENJOY!
Strange and amusing teapots were produced throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Some tried to re-invent the tea-making process with various compartments inside them, some were purely decorative, and in the nineteenth century some were made as satirical comments on contemporary figures - see the range of politicians illustrated here.The Victorians enjoyed commemorating events, and the teapot was frequently used for this purpose, even as late as the first World War, when several potteries produced teapots with patriotic slogans to send to the troops.The 1920's and 30's saw another period of amusing teapots in the shapes of racing-cars, pandas, ocean-liners and many country cottages. Although made for a mass-market, these are very collectable items today.And so to the present, where a handful of small British potteries such as ourselves are producing teapots on a contemporary theme, but in the fine tradition of eccentricity and quality for which British teapots are noted. The methods of production remain basically the same and still require the same skills to produce as they did in the eighteenth century. These teapots could justifiably become the antiques of the future.
