adding your tea leaves or bags and your hot water to begin
steeping your tea, we suggest that you add about a half
a pot full of hot tap water or some water from your kettle
that's been on the heat a few minutes but not yet boiling.
Once your water is ready to brew, empty out the warming
water from the pot and then add your tea leaves and water.
This will do two things. First it will pre-warm your tea
pot so that the cold ceramic does not drain away heat from
your water as your tea steeps. Second, it will save your
tea pot from the shock of going from room temperature to
212 degrees in an instant.
Some of you know that this kind of shock can cause crazing
in the glaze on a piece of pottery. Pre-warming will work
to eliminate some if not all of that crazing.
same advice holds for your Bauer Coffee Pot.
is a serving piece, made for pouring coffee at the table
in a little bit more elegant fashion than right from the
glass brewing pot.
before you pour in your already brewed coffee, let your
Bauer Coffee Pot warm up with some hot tap water first.
