Teapots & Kettles
Teapots and Kettles go a long way to enhance the tea drinking experience. They can significantly change how you make the tea and the way you serve it too. It is for this reason that if you are going to make the most of the experience every single time you want to have tea, you must choose the teapots and kettles that will be to your satisfaction. There are however many different types and brands of teapots and kettles. For some people knowing the type of teapots or kettles is enough while for others knowing the brand is much more advantageous. As much as this is an advantage when it comes to giving you variety, it can prove to be a disadvantage when it comes to choosing as there are so many to go through. It is for this reason that the Tea Supply has divided the teapots & kettles shopping experience into two major categories. You can choose to either shop for teapots & kettles by type or you can do it by brand. For example, you can shop for the specific teapot from the Adagio Teas brand or you can simply browse through all porcelain teapots & kettles. Serious about purchasing a teapot or tea kettle today?

OXO's Kettles – The Pressure is On In 1998, OXO introduced its first Tea Kettle. Safety and practicality were the guiding principles during the development process, and our little Kettle came complete with an innovative steam shield. Through user feedback, we realized we missed a key consumer insight – that a Tea Kettle, while a practical kitchen tool, is often a centerpiece in the kitchen. Users would leave them out on the stovetop when not in use and some even coordinated their entire kitchen decor around their Kettles. While the steam shield was innovative, it was considered by many to be unsightly (some likened it to the "Flying Nun"!). In 1999, we corrected the aesthetic flaws to our otherwise safe, practical and well-performing Kettle with the Uplift. The kicker is that all of its elegant aesthetics came as a direct result of making the Uplift safe and easy to use. OXO Good Grips Uplift Tea KettleFun Fact: The OXO Uplift Tea Kettle has an iconic shape that has become an instant American classic. It is the most requested OXO item used in propping television and movie sets. Look for it next time you watch "The Big Bang Theory!" Problems Identified Handles on tea kettles are positioned too close to the steam and hot water at the spout, making it uncomfortable while pouringAngle of kettle handles combined with weight of filled kettle make it difficult for users to lift and pour without straining wristsFine motor skills required to open kettle trigger to pour hot water; difficult for many older users to maneuverSmall opening on top makes it difficult to clean interior of kettle The Process The quest for the superlative interaction point between the spout and the handle (so the kettle would not open when carried around filled with water, but would open easily when tipped forward) led us to the current connection between the spout and handle, one that resembles a splash of water.The same connection point was also designed to keep the spout open if the user chose, so that they could keep the Uplift's whistle quiet while boiling water, which is especially handy when preparing an early morning cup of tea.While designing an opening large enough to be easy to clean, we needed to ensure it wasn't so low as to limit the maximum water level, but we still needed to keep it in balance with the spout for aesthetic reasons.Through user research, we learned that steam would sometimes escape from the lid and unfortunately heat the handle, so we added a silicone seal to minimize any unintended heat transfer and keep the kettle safe and easy to use. OXO Good Grips Classic Tea KettleOXO's Solutions Large, comfortable handle is angled away from the spout and is heat resistant and non-slip, even when wetHandle angle allows user to hold Kettle comfortably and without wrist strain, whether filled with water or nearly empty, by adjusting grip accordinglyWhistle spout opens automatically when Kettle is tipped to pour – no awkward buttons or levers to pressWide opening on top of Kettle enables easy access for cleaning and can also be used as an opening to fill Kettle The OXO Story: In 1990, OXO staged a revolution (of sorts) by offering an easy-to-use, high-performing alternative to uncomfortable and ineffective kitchen gadgets. OXO's innovative take on the traditional Swivel Peeler, complete with its pudgy black handle, raised consumers' expectations of what could be expected from household products. Today OXO offers over 800 products, each developed with a close (some might say "obsessive") attention to detail. Our goal is to deliver products that maximize comfort AND performance, illustrating our mission to create innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.
HIC’s Mesh Snap Ball Tea Infuser makes it quick and easy to steep a fresh, more distinct and flavorful cup of loose leaf tea with the same ease and convenience as using store-bought tea bags. Simply squeeze the spring-action handle to open the snap ball. Fill the ball halfway (about 2-teaspoons) with loose tea to allow the tea leaves room to fully expand. Place the infuser, ball end down, into the cup and pour in hot water. Steep no less than 3 minutes to release the naturally occurring essential oils in tea and maximize the infusion with aroma and flavor. Once desired brew strength is achieved, remove the Infuser from the cup and discard the used tea leaves. Great for making mulled cider, too. Just fill the Infuser with mulling spices instead of tea. Made from 18/8 stainless steel, HIC’s Mesh Snap Ball Tea Infuser is reusable and more economical than using store-bought or single-use disposable tea bags. Compact to store away easily. Easy to fill and empty. Just rinse clean or pop it in the dishwasher.
Distinguishing itself from other Le Creuset demi kettles, this 1-1/4-quart vessel offers the added benefit of a whistle that communicates with a high-pitched tone when the water has reached its boiling point. Thanks to a carbon steel core, heat conducts quickly and evenly. The pot's exterior features Le Creuset's renowned enamel coating providing a surface that not only looks lovely, but also wipes clean with a damp cloth. Additional features include a removable lid that fits tightly to trap in heat and a locking handle that facilitates safe pouring and transport. Although heat-resistant, the handle can get quite warm so oven mitts are recommended. Appropriate for heating sources ranging from gas and electric to radiant and ceramic, the stovetop teakettle will function in any household. Measuring 9-1/2 by 7 by 6-1/2 inches, this piece benefits from periodic de-scaling and should be hand washed. -- Amy Arnold
