About Lacquered Tea Pots: Because copper can tarnish, the vast majority of Copper Tea Pots in the market are lacquered in order to resist tarnishing (surprisingly some merchants do not mention on their sites about the lacquer even though their products are also lacquered). If you intend to use the Tea Pot not just for decor but also for heating water, you'll need to remove the lacquer - instructions on how to do so are included with our Tea Pots.
