Pros

It takes a lot to diminish the beauty of this smart and elegant teapot. What makes this teapot so special is its heat-resistant borosilicate glass body and durable stainless steel infuser.

It’s fascinating to see how tea leaves interact with the hot water and release their rich flavors to full bloom.

One of the reasons why this teapot is not as messy as the others, is the fact that you don’t have to remove the infuser when the brewing process is done. Instead you only need to press the plunger and pour as much tea as you want. Bodum manufacturers have perfected the French press feature and delivered the perfect Bodum Assam teapot.

Let’s not forget that this innovative design is quite easy to clean. You can either leave it in the dishwasher or rinse it with water. For those who didn’t know, Bodum teapot is microwave safe as well. You can place it in the microwave to warm the tea to your taste.

Cons

With so many advantages, who cares about those tiny disadvantages. Compared to other teapots, Bodum one is not able to keep the water hot for too long. If you care to drink the tea slowly, then you might find this model not so good.

It’s also recommendable to remove the infuser basket to prevent over-steeping. If not properly clean, this teapot might end up with some stains that will affect the taste of the tea.
