  • Celtic Teapot

    Great Teapot With A Blend Of Form and Function
    April 11, 2014
    I enjoy collecting teapots. Some are nice to look at but they're poorly designed with drips at the spout or lids that easily fall off when pouring, openings to narrow to clean or fit a tea infuser. But not the Celtic teapot.

    First, the look is smart, the colors are pleasant and the design is kept throughout the piece in a pleasant, well done manner, repeating on the lid, handle and base. The handle is easy to hold and pour with a base sturdy and wide making it impossible to tip over. The pot's opening allows the lid to lock-in preventing it coming off while pouring, and the spout cuts the pour without a drop spilled. It also holds a large amount of tea, and with its squat design, keeps the tea hot when placed on a tea warmer.

    I'm using the teapot for daily use. Especially now that mornings in the garden are so pleasant with tea and daily paper.

    Quality tea at a reasonable price
    December 1, 2013
    I drink tea by the mug going through a few pots of brew a day. I had a love affair with expensive Darjeelings finding them excellent but pricy and tried other teas on whim. This tea is perfect. Like the description, it has the qualities of both a fine Darjeeling and a good Assam only lighter. Goes well too by itself, no need of milk or sugar, with no astringent aftertaste. Almost as if the tea is a blend, there are layered notes. I brew the tea a tad more than three minutes and it stays up well sitting on a warmer until I'm ready to brew another pot.
