Best Material for Coffee and Tea Sets
While selecting a teapot you must think about heat retention, durability, and much more. Ceramic teapots are preferred by regular tea lovers for their low prices and modern aesthetics. Boiling water in a glass teapot is not recommended since it can shatter under pressure but is favored if you love slightly flavored tea. Cast iron teapots are both durable and aesthetically pleasing, as the material retains heat for a longer period, but it gives out a metallic taste to your tea after a while.

Teacups are meant to have a wide spout and a narrow body. However, teacups with a wide base but a narrow spout are favored by many as it helps to keep beverages hot so that their beverage stays hot for longer. A teapot should have a handle that is easy to hold and won't get hot when pouring. Make sure the lid fits snugly, has a vent for airflow, and will keep your tea where you want it without dripping.
A teaware can be of minimal colors as well as a very vibrant one. It comes in multiple patterns, textures, and styles. You can choose the pattern and color which suits your mood.
