Why would you need to remove the tea stains? The more you use them the more beautiful these vessels become. Just wipe them after use with a wet cloth.
This is definitely a matter of taste. Do you let tea stains build on your porcelain wares?
On porcelain i generally don't let stains build up, but those are very easy to clean. Porcelain does not have open pores either, which makes it easier. Anything else - unglazed pottery, or things like hagi is different. But that's just me.
