There's little more comforting than steeping your tea the old-fashioned way: in a teapot large enough to allow leaves to expand and develop their full taste. A good vessel will also let you pour into dainty, delicate cups and enjoy a proper afternoon tea session with meditative attention and old-fashioned charm. Get your own, and make tea time a little more elegant.

It comes with a removable stainless steel mesh infuser so that you can filter loose leaves. The spout never drips, but pours with elegance.
