This translucent teapot is made by Hario, a respected name in coffee and tea wares since 1921. The company was initially founded in Japan as a provider of heatproof glassware for laboratory use, and that same hardy, heat-resistant industrial glass is the same material used to create this delicate but durable teapot. This heatproof glass teapot comes with a large stainless steel fine mesh basket, providing ample room for tea leaves to unfurl and maximizing flavor extraction. You’ll know when your tea is finished, as the glass provides a clear view of the desired shade and strength of the brew. When tea time is over, the wide mouth and simple shape of the teapot allows for easy clean up without the aid of special scrubbers or bottlebrushes.
Hand wash with a soft sponge is recommended, but the item is suitable for the dishwasher. The teapot may also be placed in the microwave without the stainless steel strainer, but the teapot should not be placed directly on a heatsource. After you have brought water to a boil in a kettle or pot on the stovetop, it can be poured into the teapot so the tea can steep.
Hario was founded in 1921 to provide glassware to laboratories. In the 1940s, founder Hiromu Yasuhiro believed that their heatproof glass would work well for the growing coffee and café industry in Japan, and he was right. Today, Hario remains one of the most respected producers of laboratory and coffee products. The company is run by the original founder’s son, CEO Sibata Yasuhiro.
