Recent Tasting Notes
I picked up a large plastic teapot set on sale at T2 years ago. I wish I knew what I was getting, because if I’d realised at the time, I would have purchased a couple. Or a dozen.
I am obsessed with this teapot. It holds the perfect amount of liquid for me, 720ml, which makes three small cups of tea (to fit in my fika mug!). It retains heat so well. The only thing that could be improved is that the plastic filter lets some stuff through—I expect the stainless steel filter would be slightly more efficient but finding one is proving a little tricky.
Still, for the amount I’m obsessed with this teapot, it gets full marks.
I got this as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago from my brother and his girlfriend. I have the brown porcelain mug, which is like a mossy sort of brown. Not my favourite colour choice and I wasn’t sure if I’d even use it, though I was still impressed with the gift because it’s hard to lose if you get me a tea-something.
But here’s the thing: as much as I’m not crazy about the mug colour, this set is kinda perfect. I am crazy for tennis sets. The bamboo tray is stunning and a wonderful size—it fits a little teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl on it for a spectacular portable tea session for one. I would go so far as to say this is my favourite way to drink tea at home.
