To begin, the stainless steel infuser is an engineering marvel, with precisly cut fine perforations, enormous capacity, welded seams, and a perfect fit. It is ergonomically correct and made of quality material. It should last for decades and goes all the way to the bottom of the pot so you can make any amount of tea you desire. No cheaply stamped and crimped screening here, this infuser is not an after thought but an integral component of the total design.
In use, the complete teapot is a symphony of motion. Remove the lid, spoon in your tea leaves, add your carefully heated water and replace the lid. That's it! At the end of your first steeping, simply lift up the lid, and the infuser and tea leaves come with it. Stand the tall, flat bottomed infuser on a saucer, (it is completely drained so you don't need a bowl), gently lift the lid from the infuser and return it to the pot. Pour and enjoy your cup of tea. Your remaining tea stays exactly as you prepared it.
Looking at the the pot itself, you will behold an exquisitely executed, example of funtional artistry. Being nearly spherical in shape, it looks much smaller than it's generous internal volume would indicate. It is beautifully made, of a ceramic that looks like porcelain, with deep coloring and flawless glazing. The lid fits perfectly and seals to either the infuser or the pot with a soft, flanged, silicone rubber gasket that will not come loose when either carrying the infuser or pouring from the teapot.Read more ›
This is designed to USE as a teapot, not just to look good. I love that the spout is high up so tea won't spill out if you fill it up all the way. I love that the strainer is good quality, not just mesh, and will last, and I love that it goes nearly to the bottom of the pot so I can make just one cup of tea if I want [see update below!]. I love that the spout is designed not to drip--just one little drop that I wipe on the inside edge of the teacup after pouring. I love that the lid fits the pot with or without the strainer in (unlike the Bodum). I love the color. The only thing that I don't love, but can live with is that the handle seems a little awkward sticking out so far (I have a small hand), but it's not a biggie.
I love my teapot!
UPDATE: Okay, after using this for a bit, I have to say I absolutely love the design but it is a HUGE teapot for one. I can't really make just one cup of tea like I said in my previous review. So I went in search of a smaller pot and bought a La Cafetiere, which is also awesome, and perfect for just a cup or two. This For Life Curve pot also comes in a smaller size and I wish I'd seen that before and hadn't bought the 45-ounce version. It'll be good for company. If you make tea for one and just want 2-3 cups, this is waaaay too big!

The strainer has very fine holes, which do not let tea leaves come through. It provides room for the leaves to unfurl properly, but makes clean-up a snap. It's what I hoped for. I might have made it a tiny bit longer, but I am well pleased with it. I'm going to upload some customer photos as well, so look for those to get a good view of the strainer.
Just as I had hoped, the curved spout tip makes for easy drip-free pouring! Yay! In this video, you see the first time I poured from this pot. There is one tiny drop hanging on the tip of the spout afterwards. If you pour with just a tiny bit more care, there is no drop at all. No tea ran down the spout at all when I poured. This is a hard-to-find quality in a teapot, and this one does wonderfully well.
The handle stays pretty cool to the touch, even when the body of the pot is quite warm from boiling water! It also seems to hold heat rather well, and has a tiny steam hole in the lid. The lid fits with or without the strainer. It is all nicely designed to go together.Read more ›

Awesome teapot. Capacity is great, I get four full "coffee mug" sized servings of tea. The strainer basket is the best I've ever had in a teapot. Read morePublished 1 month ago by W. Butler
