I really adore this teapot!! It’s easy to use and comes in handy. Now as others have said the color advertised is not the color it actually is. It’s more of a grape color than a plum color. Nevertheless I couldn’t be more happier with my purchase! I would consider buying another in the future.I also like how the scent of the tea doesn’t cling to the pot. With less than a few rinsings the smell fades away and best of all doesn’t cling to the infuser.
