Cute and practical

I was given this little cute teapot by a friend for Christmas and it's perfect in so many ways.

It holds enough for 2 large mugs of tea, just the right amount for me. It doesn't leak at all when you pour, it keeps tea warm, it comes apart to clean.

The filter you put the loose tea in is very fine, meaning absolutely no tea grains get into the tea. I use teabags and loose tea, but I may well use more loose now as the taste is always better. And of course mine's pink :-)

We love it so much we have ordered 2 more, one for each of us as we drink different teas, and then I can keep this at one at work.

It comes in 8 colours and is available HERE at very reasonable cost. I will guarantee if you're a tea guzzler you will love this little tea pot.

Thank you for the wonderful tip. We are big time tea drinkers over here.

Yes, I've seen these sorts and they are smart indeed for loose leaf tea in particular. I still love my tea bags though as well but one can always take out the filter bit too which is handy.

BTw, being in OK, you should get snow soon, right? Maybe white xmas yet? no guarantees here either.

Many years ago I had a dear friend in Europe who was appalled at my use of tea bags... she told me it was what was swept from the floor after packaging the loose tea. ha haha

Love it! It's almost exactly like the Bodum one I have had in my wish list forever, but more affordable and in much nicer colors!

I have a bodum one that is vaguely similar but it leaks!! This looks sweet. I love looseleaf tea but Im so often in a rush when tea making (a sin in itself, I know) that its usually tea bags for me. That an the pot leaks...! Good tip here, thanks.

I am going to buy one especially in pink too. I dont own a teapot and have been making it with teabag in the cup and the water. I think it tastes better done in a teapot. Thanks for the tip. I couldnt believe how cheap it was too
