It's fall ! The hours of Tea Time will be able to start again! Quick, we need a new teapot. Because at 5 p.m., she presides over the mood of the table. But what to choose? An English porcelain or Zen style cast iron model?
A porcelain teapot for a British atmosphere
Until recently, the world revolved around Great Britain, the Olympic Games having succeeded the Queen's Jubilee this summer. It is therefore not a surprise that in 2012, the British style has the wind in its sails! Not to mention the fact that Tea Time is typically English. Only good reasons to want to appropriate one of its flagship pieces: the porcelain teapot. Voluminous and flowery, it is part of an atmosphere that is both girly and flirtatious, ideal for having tea with friends. Sublimated with golden ornaments, it adopts a more chic and royal look. Yes your highness! From a practical point of view, its low capacity to conserve heat makes it an accessory suitable for fragile teas: green, white or yellow.
A cast iron teapot for a Japanese atmosphere
If tea time rhymes more with relaxation, it's time to set your sights on a cast iron teapot! Its irresistible Japanese style attributed by its round, wide and flattened shape surmounted by a long handle, creates escape and zen attitude. But choosing a cast iron teapot is not just a question of style. Indeed, its great advantage is to keep tea warm longer than teapots made of porcelain or any other material. Aromatic based teas like mint or jasmine are better diffused there.
