Cute, Cozy Teapots For Tea-Drinking Fun
Teapots & Coffee Servers is a wonderful way to add a touch of color and character to your kitchen. If you are like me, then having a teapot on hand at all times is essential. Not only does it allow me to serve my tea readily and quickly, it also provides an extra place in my kitchen for other things. So how do I hang my teapots and coffee servers?
The best option is probably the simplest - hang them on the wall. You could use any style or shape of tangible wall that you prefer. For example, I love to use bowls that I have made while cleaning out the garage. They are small and space efficient, yet they look charming hanging on my wall. You can get as creative as you like.
Another option is to find some teapots with built in serving tables. I love these because they are both practical and cozy. A serving table generally sits beneath the teapot. These serve and table come in a wide variety of styles, including those with legs and even those that just have a flat top surface. You can also find them made from various materials, including wood and glass.
Teapots without serving tables are usually not suitable for indoor use. This is because the pots and tea leaf tend to spill all over the place. It's much easier to clean up if you have something solid to push against instead of a mess all over the floor. I like to use teapots with serving tables. It allows me to put the teapots on a flat surface and use a serving tray underneath to keep everything neat and organized.
Teapots without serving tables are great if you have a larger kitchen area. These styles of teapots are more suitable for the dining room or family room. These are smaller sized and fit nicely underneath a sofa or two. If you don't have a lot of room for large teapots, I would recommend a teapot with an extended shelf to fit onto.
Teapots can also be used to heat water. I really enjoy having a hot water bottle right next to the stove so I can have some hot water on demand. These types of teapots are also often used as cooking vessels. Some are designed to be used like a frying pan, others like a bain Marie. The designs of these pots vary widely depending on the manufacturer.
If you're looking for something to use as a dessert dripper, the Japanese version of a tea kettle could be the perfect option for you. These models are tall and slender and are made of cast iron. They come with spouts that will allow you to steep tea in very little time. The only drawback I can think of is that sometimes the water in these is a little cold!
When shopping for teapots, remember that not all teapots are meant to be used for the same purposes. If you want something small, then tea cups may be the way to go. If you have bigger tea parties, then tea cutters and tea servers may be your best options! Whatever you decide, the teapots will always bring you joy!
Teapots come in many different shapes and sizes. There are teapots designed to look like traditional teapots (with the hot & cold handles included), and there are even "diver" teapots (which look a bit like those old-fashioned glass tea cups). I personally prefer the "diver" type. These look absolutely fantastic as serving vessels & they are also great for boiling tea for guests!
As I said before, there are hundreds of different kinds of tea set you can purchase. I personally believe that you should get a few of each to be able to experience the variety of teas. I recently saw a set that was so adorable it made me cry! The set had four teas in it: one was a black tea, two were green tea, and one was a white tea.
These adorable teapot designs are excellent present ideas for children or adults. They are even better when you add in some nice china to go along with it! It's a fabulous gift idea that will keep your tea tasting & refreshing for years to come!
