Drilling a new hole in the lid of a glass teapot

A new, larger hole in this lid would improve air flow for a smoother pour. I used a Dremel tool model 4000 and the glass drilling bit number 662, with included drilling oil. Note the technique used for drilling glass: short and light compressions with breaks in between, adding a drop of oil every few times.

Pouring is now much smoother thanks to the modification.

Brewing with glass

Tea is delicious, aromatic, and beautiful. Preparing teas in glass pots lets you see the range of character of the leaves as they open up. Pour into a second pot and see the depth of color and texture of the brew. Natural light illuminates the entire process.

All types of tea can be prepared in glassware.
