I was very excited when I opened my box because the teapot was lovely but when I tried to remove the metal infuser to dump the tea leaves it wouldn’t come out. It seemed like it was stuck or too large for the hole. It took a lot of pulling to get it out. I am not thrilled with it.
I am very pleased with the size of this pot. The handle is well balanced and not so close to the body that it gets uncomfortably warm. The pot easily holds just offer 3 cups of tea. My only complaint is in the spout design. It caused a lot of dribbling at the start and end of the flow, which was messy. It was the worst on the first cup but guy better further into the pot. I'll keep the pot despite this nuisance.
My 14-year-old granddaughter has just become a tea lover. She was delighted to have her own specialty pot for her new morning rituals! Previously brewing a teabag in a Pyrex measuring cup; She now has beautiful spiced tea and a beautiful way to make it.
