We really love it , classy and sturdy

We switched away from metal pots for tea and also from plastic coffeemakers a couple of years ago and havent looked back. Having used another brand for a few years, I was expecting to get the same quality in this one. But I was surprised to find how heavy this is former a glass teapot, which are often very light. I know it's a heatproof borosilicate glass item, which is lighter than regular glass. But for the same capacity as my last teapot, this feels much sturdier. And it's a very contemporary design That looks great on my table top. We use oolong tea with some lemon and honey and it's worked great for us. With glass teapots, just be careful not to bang them on a granite countertop, don't drop them on the floor, was them carefully by hand and they will give you excellent flavor (and visual) on your tea, and will last you a lifetime. I think this teapot uses the same infuser and lid as the Glasgow, meaning spare parts are available which is great. If you ever need it. Based on my experience, this is a highly recommended teapot.
