This is the authentic Piao I teapot made and patented by Piao I Enterprise Co., Ltd. This teapot is comprised of an upper chamber and a lower chamber. (The upper chamber is made with plastic that is food grade PC (Polycarbonate) with temperature resistance up to +130℃ (+266℉) the same materials used to make baby bottles. The lower chamber is made with direct fired beaker glass with 150℃ (302℉) transient temperature difference resistance.) Brew the tea in the upper chamber. Once brewing is complete, press a button and the brewed tea drains to the lower chamber from where it can be poured for consumption at the desired time. This ingenious design prevents over-brewing. The upper chamber can also be removed leaving the lower chamber to serve as a teacup. Made of strong beaker glass, it is easy to clean and a pleasant design.
