Today’s update sees the addition of the Primula Floral, a cast iron teapot with a vibrant blue Japanese cherry blossom motif. This elegant choice sports an enamel interior that makes it both easy to clean and resistant to rust. Unlike many cast iron pieces, this one does not require seasoning. It retains heat evenly to keep your tea warm for hours. It replaces the Towa Workshop Tetsubin, another cast iron choice with an enamel coating that does not always stand up so well to heat.
In this update, we also replaced the currently unavailable Buckingham Palace Set with another choice from the same manufacturer. The attractive and modern Teabloom Premium is made of durable borosilicate glass that holds up well and is safe for use on the stovetop, in the microwave, and in the dishwasher. It’s larger than many and can accommodate up to five servings at a time, and comes with two fragrant jasmine blooming tea flowers. If you prefer the durability of stainless steel, look to the Venoly T0102, which also can brew large amounts at once. It sports a sleek satin finish and is resistant to rust and corrosion.
If you’re interested in service for one, check out the Forlife Curve, which is offered in a bevy of vibrant colors such as yellow, orange, blue, green, red, black, and more. It can handle both small and large tea leaves like a champ, from ultrafine rooibos to large oolong leaves. For service for one in a convenient mug design, look to the Tea Song Porcelain, which comes in your choice of eight colorful ombre designs. Just pour boiling water in and let your tea steep right in the cup. The lid conveniently can serve as a coaster. Like some of the others in our selection, it’s safe for both the dishwasher and the microwave for quick reheating and cleanup.

Teapots with infusers are vital for brewing loose leaf teas, so we ensured that our options included ultrafine filters capable of accommodating any blend, no matter how delicate. We also made a point to incorporate glass, plastic, stainless steel, and cast iron to suit a variety of preferences. Placed the Buckingham Palace Set at the top spot due to its meticulous construction and the inclusion of a warmer, and added the Tea Song Porcelain and Adagio Ingenuitea for their portable designs.
Open Kitchen Glass Teapot This elegantly shaped pot is handcrafted from clear glass, so you can watch the steeping process and decide when your beverage is ready. Its borosilicate construction makes it lightweight yet highly durable, and it resists stains and odors. The included stainless steel infuser makes it great for use with loose tea as well as tea bags. It’s microwavable without the insert, and is safe for use in the dishwasher. It features a capacity of 40 ounces and measures six inches tall. williams-sonoma.com
