The 16 ounces capacity is the perfect size for multiple tea drinkers and the cast iron will keep the water hot for a long time.

This pot holds exactly 17oz with the basket in. There seems to be a lot of confliction on this issue, and they may all have some variables, but mine's a 17oz pot. The enamel on the inside isn't perfect looking, but for the price who can complain? It doesn't dribble even topped off above it's 17oz capacity (with the basket removed and to the rim almost). The enameling inside of the spout seems pretty much perfect though, and this is the only area I can't hit with a towel after use so I'm glad to see that.

UPDATE: I took the pot back. The enamel started flaking off really bad. I had read other reviews about this and assumed that they didn't know how to properly use a teapot (maybe they were using it as a kettle too? idk).... but using it exclusively as a pot, no washings (only a quick rinse with water).... the enamel flaked off really bad into my tea. I wish that this product came without enamel so I could just use it like a normal tetsubin, but that's not the case.

WOW, what a great addition to my kitchen. It stays hot forever! Easy to brew..don't place on flame. You have to preheat water in another traditional kettle for brewing. You want to fill with hot water prior to use to "prime" the kettle or "prep" it for brewing (dump out the first fill of hot water prior to adding the tea). Then add tea in the screen and pour hot water over the loose leaf tea or bag to brew. Brew for specified time and then serve! Porcelin inside that must be cleaned immediately after use. You should not leave tea in overnight as this may damage the inside coating. Easy clean fun to use and great for conversation! I invite almost everyone to enjoy tea with me if they have time:)

My daughter gave this to me for Mother's Day and it has become a real treasure. I take time to make the tea and then savor the enjoyment of drinking it. The ritual is very relaxing - and the pot is beautiful.

I recently purchased a cast iron teapot. The picture was deceiving and the description didnt say how many cups it held. Its really cute but only holds 2 cups. I can live with that. Down side is lid just sets on so falls off when pouring and is very hot. It also has a basket for tea leaves inside which I like as I harvest and dry herbs and often use a teaball.

I was skeptical with this purchase, but it really turned out to be everything I was hoping for.

About me.... I was severely addicted to soda. I've been drinking 3-4 cans of soda a day for the past 12 years. I've tried quitting soda over 15+ times. Now that I have this little tea pot (it IS little....) and a teapot warmer, I can have warm tea waiting for me whenever I need it. This teapot has helped me create new habits.

Downsides first, it is probably the reported 17 ounces. When I got it in the mail, I was shocked by how small it looked. But really, who needs that much tea in one sitting? Another downside it that it didn't seem packaged very well. Amazon did its part, but the actual teapot box was punched through by the cast iron spout. Teapot was fine though.

Why this teapot is great:

It stays warm
Looks stylish, authentic, and snazzy
Feels heavy and sturdy
Seems to be made well
The basket is easy to clean

The teapot stays warm for a while, however, I suggest buying a cast iron teapot warmer so you can have warm tea constantly. They need tealight candles, but you can buy them over amazon or go to ikea and buy hundreds of them for less than 10 dollars.

At the price of 20-25 dollars, this teapot is so worth it.

I purchased this pretty red teapot as a gift for my son for Christmas. He likes little things to set around his house, a new and unusual structure. The pot is very heavy and is made of enameled iron. It looks lovely on or near his wood stove which has a beautiful stone chimney. It was much smaller than I had expected it would be, but he said it was just what he wanted and expected it would be. (I chose it from his Amazon Wish List.) It is usable as well as decorative and I was surprised when I read that on the tag inside. I had expected it would be a "regular" teapot that would make several cups at a time, but it will only make or two, at the most, servings. It was hard to tell from the picture just what it really looks like.
It is a perfect gift for a friend or family member who enjoys unusual and pretty home accents.

I just received this and tried it out almost immediately. The instructions said to handwash the little pot and I did that - with warm water, and dried it with a soft towel. I heated the pot by pouring hot tap water into it - while I boiled water on the stove to make tea.

The basket that comes inside this little cutie is perfect for my loose tea, and believe me, I have had problems finding a diffuser that is small enough for my small loose tea. The basket that comes with this item is the best I've found so far.

So when the water I had boiled on top of the stove was ready, I poured the hot tap water out of the cast iron teapot and replaced it with the boiling water. I then added the tea basket that I had already filled with loose leaf tea.

I let the tea steep for about five minutes. It was fantastic, strong tea!

Also, this pot is so cute, it reminds me of something you might find leftover from Opium dens of yore. Very charming and unique - and it would make an excellent gift for tea enthusiasts!
