Long Handle Contemporary Glass Pot


Crafted By Ming Xin Tang

This large modern-style teapot from Ming Xin Tang features a unique design with two different glass inserts: a generously-large brew basket to give your leaves plenty of room to infuse as you watch them unfurl, and a bonus pourover glass insert designed for pour over or to continuously steam your tea leaves and drip down over low heat. The wood handle makes for an elegant pour as you show off your finest teas.

    The bonus pour over insert is a special bonus gift from Ming Xin Tang meant to show off a newly-popular texture-focused brewing style.

    This insert allows you to do your own pourover gongfu-style tea in a big pot. It is inspired by the up-and-coming steam-percolation technique, but we don't recommend steam percolation unless you have appropriate glass or or ceramic top electric heat elements made for heating glasswares over low heat

    Never heat the tea pot on medium or high heat and never use directly on gas stoves, or the teapot may shatter. Even high quality tempered borosilicate glass is sensitive to higher heats. Use on high heat or gas ranges is dangerous

    To use the percolator insert without a special ceramic heat element, we recommend packing leaves in tightly at the top and treating the element as a pour-over, pouring over packed fine leaves in a thin slow stream.

    You will get a similar effect once the leaves are opened up as long as you pour slowly enough.

    Use more tea than usual to fill the brew basket. Prime the leaves with a bit of hot water to get them expanding and discard the rinse.

    Then pour a thin stream of water over the leaves in a circular motion to slowly fill the pot with your pourover brew. Pour into serving cups and enjoy, repeating many times to enjoy the way brew changes as the leaves continue to expand.

    All the flavor and aroma complexity of Gongfu brewing, but in a big pot!
