If you prefer your glass teapot to have a built in infuser do you want that too to be glass or of the traditional metal mesh construction.?
Do you want your glass teapot to serve double duty for iced tea or other chilled tea based drinks ? then a taller style of teapot should be your preference. Would you prefer that your teapot came as part of a tea set or alone ?,if a tea set is chosen what kind of cups would you like the more oriental styled tea bowls or the traditionally accepted western type of tea
cup with a handle.? Would you be happier if you were able to keep your tea warm over a tea light if so then you would require a teapot frame or tea warmer as part of your tea set.
