The Best Glass Teapot, Tea Kettle, Storage + More
If you are in the market for a new teapot to steep your loose leaf teas, I feel like I found the crème de la crème of glass teapots for loose tea. If you are all set with your teapot though, I’ve also got some kettles, tea storage ideas, tea, and more.

The Best Glass Teapot
First up, the best teapot I’ve ever used. I will say I have not used that many, but when I buy something like this I really do my research and look around. Probably too much so. However, I am glad I did, otherwise I would have ended up with a different one.
- It’s glass, which is the purest material to brew tea in. I still gladly drink tea in all types myself though. Glass is of course easier to break and it’s how my last teapot broke, but they still last a long while if you are careful.
- It does not have the metal or glass insert that usually goes through the middle of the teapot. This is a HUGE plus. I’ve always found it a pain to clean the little pieces of tea that get stuck in the glass grooves. The strainer is right at the top of this teapot and the metal never touches the tea while it steeps. Well, as long as you stop pouring the water right below it. Due to this amazing design, I’ve found it to be the easiest teapot to clean.
- The size: I bought the 27 oz / 2-3 cup size and although it seemed small right away, it’s perfect. The big one seems like it would be harder to clean and easier to knock and break. I also saw some reviews where the loose tea escaped when pouring due to the seal not lining up properly in the larger size. I have no issues with mine, so I would recommend the medium size.
- It’s aesthetically pleasing, matches most décor, and is super comfortable to hold and pour.
- You can heat it up directly on the stovetop, but I have not tried this out. I just use my tea kettle to pour in hot water. I think the longevity would be shorter on the stovetop, but maybe not.

Another teapot I was eyeing in my search was this CnGlass Glass Teapot with a wood top. It has a completely different way to strain tea though and it does seem like small bits of tea would still escape. However, it is well rated, so I figured I would still share it.
I call my tea kettle a teapot, but correct terminology if we are being correct 😉 is kettle. Teapot, Tea Kettle, whatever you want to call it, check these out.
All Clad Stainless Steel Tea Kettle
This is what I have and I 100% bought it due to the appearance. It’s beautiful, well made, and it works great. I’ve had it for many years. Shop it Here.
Borosilicate Glass Stove Top Whistling Tea Kettle
This utilitarian looking glass tea kettle, which I’m also attracted to, is a super affordable option for a tea kettle. It’s also a great one if you pretty much avoid all metal, including stainless. The reviews mention that the handle can get hot if you put it on too high of heat, so just beware. Shop it Here.
Unbleached Loose Leaf Tea Bags
These are great if you don’t want to mess with a teapot or on the go. Shop Them Here.
Loose Leaf Tea Storage
Tightly sealed mason jars are an extra easy and affordable way to store loose leaf tea. However they don’t stack, take up more space due to their bulkiness, and may not be the visual appeal you are after.
I myself am currently using the exact bags all my loose leaf tea came in, some mason jars, and an old honey jar. As much as I want everything to look extra neat and tidy in my cupboards and for my loose leaf tea to be properly stored, I’ve realized my space and what I have room for. I am still working on something for my counter, but in the meantime, I thought I would share what I have found in my search.
Airtight High-Grade Borosilicate Glass With Natural Wooded Lid
These are extremely well made, thicker glass than most, have airtight seals, look really pretty, and come in a large range of sizes. Although light shines through clear glass, it might be worth it to you to visually see your beautiful teas.
I actually ordered the 39oz size for my countertop, but I was going out on a limb that the lid would be a dark wood color as shown. Well, it came with a lighter wood lid, so it doesn’t match my home, but I still highly recommend them.
They may seem a lot pricier than many tea canisters, but when comparing glass quality, the airtight seal, design, and the larger sizes they offer, it seems worth it.
Airtight Black Ultraviolet Infinity Jars
So ideally you don’t want your tea exposed to light – natural or artificial. So the mason jars, clear glass jars, and similar are all to be in your cupboard in the ideal world.
Through my tea research, apparently there is nothing better for blocking light and keeping the shelf life and freshness in tea than violet glass jars. They are pricey for the ounces they hold, but due to the qualities they have and their beautiful violet glass, they may be worth it to you. I’ve learned people also buy these for ashes as well…. Shop Violet Jars.
Ceramic Tea Canisters
Ceramic is supposed to be better than clear glass since the tea won’t be exposed to light. The flip side is glass is a purer material. Either way, I found these pretty ceramic options. Just know I did not do any thorough research on these. They looked cute and said airtight.
For those small bags of tea that you don’t necessarily need a container for, but just another seal from air and possibly from light, I stumbled on these fun Sowden Tins from Hay. Shop it Here.
Sadly, most teas contain a lot of toxic crap we want to avoid. These are some tea brands I buy and trust.
- Traditional Tea Bags – Traditional Medicinal Tea
- FGO Tea – they have tea bags and loose leaf tea
- Mountain Rose Herbs – loose leaf tea
- Starwest Botanicals – loose leaf
