The Difference Between a Teapot and a Tea Kettle
Though similar in design and structure, a teapot is not the same as a tea kettle. A teapot is used as a receptacle to brew, steep, and serve tea; many come with an infuser to hold loose leaves. Most teapots are crafted in earthenware, ceramic, or porcelain. A stovetop or electric tea kettle is used to heat water to then pour over a tea bag or loose leaves in a cup or pot to steep. Tea kettles come in a variety of materials, including stainless and carbon steel, copper, and enamel on steel.
