While fairly similar, teapots and kettles are not the same. A teapot is designed to merely steep tea, to where a kettle is designed to bring the water to a boil prior to steeping tea. Teapots are generally made of ceramics, porcelains, and some stainless-steel integration, but are not made to withstand the high temperatures that a fire or stoves give off in order to get your water to boil. Kettles on the other hand were made with intention of heating water up, much like a saucepan and can handle being put over a fire or on the stove in order to get your hot water.
There are a few types of teapots on the market today, to start there is glass teapots, used for green and light teas, dishwasher safe most of the time.

The most important thing about making Moroccan mint tea is having the right teapot. Of course, you can get away with letting the ingredients infuse in water like with most tea infusions. But to get that special taste everyone craves in Moroccan mint tea, you will need a special Moroccan teapot.
In fact, to make authentic Moroccan mint tea, Moroccans steep tea and mint leaves in boiling water for a few minutes. This means that the teapot should be able to handle very high temperatures for a short period of time.
Moroccans drink their tea very slowly until it is no longer hot, then the host pours a little more to warm their cup. If you are hosting 4+ people, get a 32oz teapot. Otherwise, a 16oz teapot will be more than enough (and will cost less).
In fact, the many so-called Moroccan teapots in the market are made in China or India, and have nothing to do with Morocco or artisanal craftsmanship. They are made in factories, most of the time with lower quality, and they often copy the Moroccan designs.
On the other hand, artisanally-made Moroccan teapots are made to last if used correctly. They are of better quality and more durable with precise and gorgeous engravings. We have in my family some artisanal Moroccan teapots that are over 50 years old and that still look amazing!
Hi Erika, Can you wait another 2 weeks or so If yes, Little Moroccan Things is going to restock very soon. They bring teapots from Morocco, and with the current covid situation, the re-stocking takes time. They have the perfect products if you are looking for authentic Moroccan handicrafts made by artisans.
Making tea is essentially the process of breaking down the cell structure of tea leaves to release their flavour. Using the traditional method of Chinese tea-making, called Gong-Fu Cha (Tea With Great Skill), the teapot is perhaps the most important element in this process. The tea-maker must match the right size and shape of teapot, the type of clay and firing temperature with the right type of tea and the number of people being served. And since a teapot is something that may be used every day, it should should be something that is comfortable to handle, long lasting and pleasing to the eye.
The first thing to consider when looking for a teapot is to select the right size of teapot to suit the number of people you will be making tea for most of the time. Teapots come in a variety of sizes but can be generally grouped the following way:
Shopping for teapots can be confusing so the Size of Teapot numbers indicated above correspond quite well to the number of people being served. If you usually drink tea alone or with one other person, the #2 size for 2 persons would be a good start. If a few more people come over for tea, you can simply make more brews. If you have a favourite tea that you serve often to many guests, consider getting a larger teapot for that tea.
The different shapes of teapots allow for the different types of leaves to expand in their own unique way to maximize the surface area exposed to water while brewing inside the teapot. Teapots come in 2 basic profiles: high profile and low profile and each is suited to a number of teas.
Collecting interesting looking teapots can be an enjoyable and rewarding hobby but one should not confuse a good tea-making teapot with a decorative one. Notice that all the shapes above except for the decorative one follow very simple designs. The reason for the lack of ornamentation is because tea is very sensitive to heat fluctuations and the best teapots distribute heat evenly. Decorations create different densities in the teapot, which can create hot and cool spots. Another reason is that with Gong Fu Cha, hot water is poured over a teapot during brewing and the water will be deflected by awkward angles, creating further hot and cool spots inside the teapot during brewing.
Yixing (Yee-zhing) clay is the famous clay from the Yixing region of Jiangsu Province in Central China from which the finest teapots have been made for centuries. There are many types of Yixing clay but they can generally be grouped into two grades of quality:
Glass and porcelain teapots are flavour neutral and unlike clay teapots, do not change the taste of tea in any way as their impermeable surfaces do not absorb any tea oils and can be rinsed clean after each use. These are good for testing and comparing teas. You might want try a new tea in a glass or porcelain teapot before you make it in your clay teapot to compare how your clay teapot is affecting the taste.
