You can use your 19th-century Staffordshire teapot or any other large old china teapot to brew your modern green tea. Just be sure to first warm the teapot by filling it with hot water. Empty the hot water, then put the tea in the pot, and cover the leaves with boiling water. Too sudden a temperature change can crack the pot.
