The body of a teapot must be large enough so that the tea leaves can develop while allowing the water to circulate. The easiest way to see if the teapot has a large enough room is to look at the tea when you finish brewing it. If it looks like there is a lot of space left in the room, then that’s a good size. If the tea leaves look like they are slightly compressed, you need to upgrade the size. At a minimum, it needs to be that wide. In my opinion, the wider the room the better. So if it looks short and squat, then the room must be perfect. Meanwhile, if you want a unique and classic type of a teapot, we recommend you to check out the Teekanne aus Gusseisen.
Infusion Plays a Large Role in Tea Expansion
Infuser baskets are nets that look for items that bend and clean your teapot easily. They are good for an everyday tea, but you need to make sure it’s big enough.
Why is a small infuser bad?
If the infuser basket is too small, the tea leaves will never open fully meaning that the full taste will never be released. A perfect example of a tea making tool that is too small is the “tea ball.” Tea balls are shaped like a small egg-shaped device that tends to have chains on the ends. After you brew the tea with one of these, the tea is usually filled there to the point where you almost need to take it out. This is not ideal.
