I love the tea pot. It's the perfect size for two mugs of tea, which I drink every day. However, as others have mentioned, the lid leaves a lot to be desired. First, it clips on to the pot but it will not stay in the up position. When the infuser is inserted, the infuser is very difficult to remove without having to remove the lid first. And, it's just not appealing. This pot would be perfect if the lid was also ceramic.
