This teapot has a pleasantly-rounded body and a unique profile. The rim is flared upward in the ‘front’ and ‘back’ of the pot, creating a secure spot for the lid and giving the pot a lovely silhouette. Its clay body is a warm tan color with a significant amount of rose fleck. Simple, vertical hand-drawn lines embellish the surface of the pot, while the lid is accentuated with a purplish-grey metallic glaze. The lid’s knob is slightly indented, making it the perfect spot to place your finger while pouring. The handle is well proportioned and has a squared off top, making it comfortable to hold.
Equipped with both a built in clay sasame filter and a removable stainless steel mesh strainer, this teapot is capable of accommodating a wide variety of tea leaf sizes. It has a wide opening, so it is also easy to fill and to clean.
An all around pretty yet practical teapot that’s also quite reasonably priced!
