  • $\begingroup$ A riddle here should be solvable even without using any spoilertagged material. So, you should either turn the spoilertags into normal text or add more normal text at the top. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Sep 17 '18 at 9:59

I think the word is

RECORD.

First meaning is

record as in recorded document.

second meaning is

record as in extreme performance.

My first teapot can be produced easily, but evaluated hardly
My second teapot can be produced hardly, but evaluated easily

It's easy to record something, but then a list of records can be hard to evaluate. It's hard to make a new world record, but easy to evaluate because it just needs to be better than the last one.

My first teapot is historical interesting
My second teapot is also historical interesting, but of minor value

A written record of some fact may be very historically interesting. A new world record is interesting only up until it's beaten.

My first teapot is various
*My second teapot is really various, like ... WOW**

Information can be recorded in various ways. World records also vary a lot, and can be amazing.

My first teapot is touchable
My second teapot is not touchable but beatable

You can touch a record on a piece of paper, and you can beat a world record.
