Glass Teapots are elegant and yet practical. Some can be used on the stove top or in the microwave. Glass Teapots create a stylish window to display the new Flowering Artisan Teas in. They are a unique gift.
Preventing Thermal Shock
New teapots need to be conditioned to prevent "thermal shock". This happens when the teapot or teacup is heated too quickly.
To prevent "thermal shock", pour very hot (but not boiling water) into the teapot. Empty the teapot and replace with boiling water for brewing. Or you can place a silver spoon in the teapot or teacup, then add boiling water. The spoon will safely absorb the heat.
