Other Thoughts:This tea pot is fantastic, I cannon recommend it highly enough! It has heavy, durable construction so it will last for years to come and it looks amazing (paint job and details are great!). It holds enough tea for about 4 servings making it great for groups or just for one, and since its made of cast-iron it keeps the tea warm for a long time. Form and function combined to make one perfect product.
Other Thoughts:I've had this teapot for almost three years now and I still adore it. It's heavy duty, durable, and steeps the loose leaf tea perfectly. Be sure to put hot water into the teapot first to "warm it up" then pour out the hot water you just used before adding the loose tea and the boiling water from the stove.
Other Thoughts:I love this teapot. I use it every day. It's just what I expected, and a great deal for the price. Can't find anything negative about it. It's easy to use, easy to clean, and makes just the right amount of tea for my friend and I to each have a couple of cups before bed. Couldn't be happier
Other Thoughts:I purchased this teapot as a gift for my wife and she loves it. The teapot is very elegant with a dusty green dragonfly motif on the exterior and a black enamel interior. It comes with a stainless steel tea basket and holds sufficient water to brew 6 to 7 cups. The cast iron make the pot heavy and retains heat. However, the pot is heavy and I do not recommend for anyone with arthritis or a weak grip. Its a well priced alternative to costlier pots from here.
Other Thoughts:My sister bought me this teapot as a gift and I absolutely love it. It keeps the tea warm for hours. It holds just the right amount of tea. Everyone that comes over to my home always says it is a pretty tea pot and then asks where I got it. I could not be happier with it. Looks beautiful, works wonderful and I will keep it forever.
