Choosing a Coffee or Tea Set for Your Home
Looking to brew the perfect cup of coffee or tea? There are many tools available to help you get the job done, from the traditional tea set to an electric kettle with innovative features. Here are just a few of the tea and coffee brewing sets you'll find at west elm.
The classic teapot is a must-have for any tea lover. It can be used for brewing or serving tea and features a functional, yet charming design that looks great in any kitchen. Teapots are made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, glass, metal and porcelain. The right material for you will depend on whether you will be using the pot to brew tea or to pour a tea that has already been brewed. Other important considerations are the size of the pot, its ability to retain heat and ease of cleaning.
A kettle is another tea set option that can also be used as part of a coffee set. These appliances are usually made from conductive materials like aluminum, copper and stainless steel, making them ideal for stovetop use. For faster brewing, consider an electrical kettle like the SMEG, which features a limescale filter, an auto-shut off feature and an energy-efficient design.
A pour-over kettle has a gooseneck-style spout that reduces spillage and allows for greater precision when pouring hot tea. This type of kettle can also be used for pour-over coffee brewing. You'll find both electric and stovetop pour over kettles in our collection, including the copper Fellow Stagg Kettle, which features a built-in thermometer, and the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle, which boasts an LCD screen and a brew stopwatch.
Beverage Serving Sets
