Should you clean your teapot after every use or not? There are those that believe – STRONGLY – that you should never clean out your teapot – that the tannin build up in the teapot adds to the flavours of the tea. There are others that believe – STRONGLY – that by not cleaning your teapot, you will never have a clean and pure tasting cup of tea. Our position on it is quite simple – it depends on whether you enjoy different types of tea or if you prefer drinking just one type. If you do drink different types/categories of tea – white, green, oolong, etc – then we suggest either cleaning your teapot thoroughly, or keeping a different teapot for every different type of tea that you drink. A white tea is far too smooth and delicate for example to be drinking out of a teapot with black tea tannin buildup.
