China is the hometown of tea culture. The fragrant green leaves sink and float in boiling water, which carries the taste of the whole nation. For those whom like drinking tea, the purple sand pot is the first choice for brewing at usual and next followed by ceramics, silver, iron, etc.But the more ornamental glass tea sets are rarely used.Because glass is brittle and the heat insulation is not very good in the past that boiling water in the glass is very hot. Even if the wall of the pot is thickened, it may eventually cause cracking due to thermal expansion and contraction.
Society and technology are developing , why is there no heat-resistant glass material for drinking?
NO,we have heat-resistant glass material for drinking, such as high borosilicate glass.
The high borosilicate glass tea pot is the results of modern craft
At present, the popular types on the market are ordinary glass, high borosilicate glass and tempered glass.They have different characteristics. Let’s focus on high borosilicate glass：Ordinary glass can only withstand a temperature difference of about 75 degrees Celsius while high borosilicate glass contains high temperature resistant boric acid ，which can adapt to extreme temperature differences.And it can withstand temperature differences of up to about 150 degrees Celsius usually. In addition, compared with tempered glass, high borosilicate is a safer heat-resistant glass and there is no danger of the glass sheet scattering when exposed to thermal shock or external impact.
At the same time, high borosilicated glass with high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance makes it difficult to precipitate substances harmful to the human body in daily usage for drinking water . Therefore, the usage of high borosilicate glass for making teapots is not only the product of modern technological progress, but also the result of people's improvement in quality of life.
In the past, glass tea cups were popular in our daily life. But now, glass tea sets have been greatly developed. Glass teapots made of high borosilicate materials can be directly heated by flames or electric ceramic stoves. You can directly drink tea by pouring it into the tea compartment when making tea. The tea is separated in the compartment , there is no need to eat the tea leaves and ensure the taste of the tea soup, which is very convenient for tea drinking.
Making tea in a glass teapot can show the bright color of the tea soup and the tenderness and softness of the tea, the up and down movement of the tea throughout the brewing process, and the gradual stretching of the leaves can be seen at a glance, which can be said to be a dynamic artistic appreciation. It is especially suitable for brewing flower tea, fruit tea, herbal tea, etc., with high ornamental and interesting.
And the glass teapot is light, luxurious, easy to use and inexpensive.
The glass teapot is transparent that easy to clean which is the first choice for tea set for tea lovers.
