Wow!!! Even better than I imagined
on March 23, 2012
I spent some time trying to find the right teapot for my boyfriend and I, we drink a lot of tea. After dinner or during a movie we will have 10+ cups each! So the little tiny glass teapots didn't seem right for us. This pot is 48oz!!(and that's not overfilling it either). That is 8, 6 oz cups for those of you who don't want to do the math!!
The tea warmer works really well, it keeps the tea at perfect drinking temperature.
The best part of this teapot, which I feel is poorly described by the seller is that the lid has a very nice rubber ring that holds it in place perfectly, and is so well designed it also removes with ease. AND if you are using the infuser the lid holds onto the infuser so you can lift it out without touching the hot strainer, then it pops off easily so you can put it back on the teapot, It's amazing!!
The glass is very thin, but it is similar to that on a standard coffee pot.
I tested the pouring spout to see if I would get a drip like other reviewers mentioned, I poured at every conceivable speed and not one drip!
The infuser seems well made, I simply dunked it under water to clean all the tea leaves out.
I am very happy with this purchase, in fact this is my first review (for a product to make me happy enough to write a review, well.. I feel that alone says something)
