Nearly perfect

The glaze is a deep, rich brown, and very glossy. The handle only has room for two small man fingers, but is shaped so that it can be supported underneath with the other two fingers. The hole in the top is quite big, compared to the size of the top, which means that most infusers will fit. I use a plastic Bodum one that came with the Bodum mug/infuser set.

I only took off a star because it drips a drop or two when you stop pouring. If this is such an old and famous design, they should have figured out how to beat this problem by now. (the Japanese pots, with their sharp spouts don't seem to drip at all; too bad they're so darned heavy!)

Once you get the right pouring technique, this is not really a problem. Pour the cup, and instead of stopping pouring abruptly, lightly drag the bottom of the spout on the edge of the cup, which catches that lone drop that would otherwise run down.

I like that it is classy, but not too loud or flamboyant. Perfect for an everyday teapot.

Now I understand why so many people love the Brown Betty. This tea pot looks great, feels great, and has all the qualities an outstanding tea pot should have. I'm the only tea drinker in my house, and this is a great size for 1 person.
