Stainless steel Soropot may be the ultimate teapot

The Joey Roth Sorapot is made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass, and food-grade silicone. It was designed by Joey Roth. While the initial design is pretty darn cool, wait until you start using it.

The Sorapot is made from an uncoated stainless steel. This means it will gradually develop a patina where you touch it. The glass tube is removable and easy to clean, and all parts are dishwasher safe.

Make your iced tea more flavorful with this infusion pitcher

There are many iced tea pitchers in the kitchen universe. Most are basic containers that provide a sturdy handle, sized to fit the fridge, and do the basic job of holding and pouring your favorite iced tea. But most don’t do anything to make your tea actually taste better.

This pitcher includes a chamber for fruits, herbs, and aromatics that add flavors to your teas as they chill in the fridge.

Fruit Infusion Pitcher

You can also use this with water instead of tea.

This product makes it fun to drink more water. There are so many things you can put in the infuser. Try fresh rosemary, lavender, or cucumber. The possibilities are endless. It also makes a great table decoration. The flavor infusion is just right, not too strong. I really like flavoring my water this way rather than drinking artificial flavorings.

Japanese Tea Ceremony Bamboo Ladle and Whisk

These items are used in the Japanese tea ceremonies.

The Japanese tea ceremony, also called the Way of Tea, is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, powdered green tea. In Japanese, it is called chanoyu (茶の湯) or chadō (茶道; also pronounced sadō?). The manner in which it is performed, or the art of its performance, is called temae (点前?). Zen Buddhism was a primary influence in the development of the tea ceremony.

Japanese Tea Ceremony Bamboo Ladle/Hishaku

Hishaku (柄杓). This is a long bamboo ladle with a nodule in the approximate center of the handle. It is used to pour hot water into the tea bowl from the iron pot (kama) and to transfer cold water from the fresh water container to the iron pot when required. A tetsubin does not require the use of a hishaku.

Different styles are used for different ceremonies and in different seasons. A larger version that is made of cypress wood is used for the ritual rinsing of hands and mouth by guests before entering the tea room, or for use by the host in the back preparation area of the tea room (mizuya), in which case it distinguished as mizuya-bishaku.
