If your host is more of a tea person, this clear glass teapot is a beautiful yet useful gift. Unlike typical tea pots that use an infuser for brewing loose leaf tea, this tea pot includes a tea straining mesh in the spout so that tea leaves can “jump” around the pot during the brewing process, resulting in a stronger and more full-bodied flavor. 500ml size for $36.50 at Amazon.
