I admired this teapot for a long time before receiving it as a gift. The lines of it are modern and lovely, and aesthetically it’s a joy to have as part of my collection.

The lid fits very well and is removable for easy cleaning, though being shiny stainless steel, does get smudgy looking easily. The body of the pot is well made – the ceramic is even and durable and the glaze is smooth. The spout pours very cleanly.

It comes with a metal infuser basket made of very fine mesh, so it’s suitable for steeping rooibos and other small, granular teas. The basket is reasonably sized, though I would prefer slightly larger. It has a rounded bottom so it’s easy to clean but also easy to squish out of shape if you’re not careful while cleaning it.

This size holds three or four cups.
