Maybe you like to wake up with a steaming mug of herbal tea in the mornings. Maybe you enjoy sipping on a cup of chai with an afternoon cookie. Or maybe you wind down in the evening with spot of green tea. Regardless of your tea of choice, you’ll need a teapot to steep your beverage. While you could settle for a plain old kettle, Amazon has a more modern, more elegant option: this stunning cast-iron teapot.
Not only will the Toptier Cast-Iron Teapot be a welcomed (and much-used) addition to your kitchen, it also makes a unique gift for the tea lover in your life. Here’s what you need to know about the geometric pot that has thousands of shoppers entranced.
Unlike your grandmother’s stainless steel tea kettle, the Toptier teapot is made of cast iron and comes in six trendy colors—aqua, black, sky blue, forest green, blush pink and bright yellow—with either a gold or black handle. Cast iron is a durable and heat-retaining material that’s a popular choice for traditional Japanese teapots (known as tetsubin) since it keeps tea hot for long periods of time.
The Toptier teapot has an enameled interior with a removable stainless steel infuser, so you can use loose leaf tea as well as teabags. The contemporary curved handle folds down, and a short spout makes pouring easy.
This cast-iron teapot is available in three sizes: 30, 40 and 54 ounces. The smallest option makes enough tea to serve two to three people.
One look at this cast-iron teapot and it’s clear why it’s so popular! Its stylish geometric diamond design is unlike any other kettle out there. But it’s more than just a pretty piece—it also has a lot of helpful features that make it as functional as it is fashionable. For starters, because it’s made of cast iron, it heats water quickly and evenly on the stove. More importantly, the Toptier teapot keeps your tea warmer for longer, thanks to its insulating properties.
One of the main highlights of this teapot, however, is its removable infuser. With this feature, you can brew almost any kind of tea you desire, including blooming tea. Note that the teapot doesn’t have a whistle like stainless steel or copper tea kettles do, so you’ll have to pay attention while it’s boiling and steeping.
With more than 2,300 reviews on Amazon, this geometric teapot is a popular pick among shoppers who can’t stop gushing over both how it looks and how it works. “It looks great and it does what it’s supposed to,” writes verified Amazon purchaser, Ethan. “The mesh tea basket is expansive, so you can make highly expanding teas (like jasmine pearls or rolled oolongs) and it’s cast iron, so your tea will come to a drinking temp faster and stay there longer.”
Five-star reviewer, Shauna Branstiter, says her and her daughter use the pot every night for their cuppa. “We absolutely adore this cast-iron tea kettle; the infusion basket inside makes it so easy to make our tea without the hassle of individual infusers for our loose leaf teas,” she explains. “The kettle heats up so quickly and the handle stays cool enough to maneuver the kettle without having to use a hot pad.”
You can find this geometric cast iron teapot on Amazon starting at $30 for the smallest 30-ounce size. It’s just what you need to whip up one of our favorite tea recipes! (And if you want another tea-brewing option, check out what happened when we tried an electric tea kettle.)
