Tea Gift Idea #1: Piao i Teapot


I bought one of these from Serenity Tea House earlier this year and it’s become my favourite infuser to use when reviewing teas — especially since my adorable yet prone-to-break-things 18-month old son smashed the lid of my gaiwan.

Here’s how it works: Drop the leaves in the top, add water, and push the button on top to empty the liquor into the glass pot below. Simple, innovative and particularly good for high quality oolongs, pu-erhs or green teas that are suitable for multiple infusions.

My recommendation: Get this for someone who loves quality loose leaf tea, especially teas that can be reinfused.
