I haven't had one since the beginning of August so I thought I was about due for a new addition to the teapot collection. Honestly my teapots are taking over the house just like my handbags. They just work their way in
and before you know it I'm looking for cupboard space or special shelf to put them on.
If you read last weeks Teapot Tuesday you will recognise this teapot from the deli/teashop Milk and Honey. it's ok I didn't steal it I just took a fancyit and went home and ordered myself one.
I love the fact it comes with an infuser in it for use with loose leaf tea and that you can also take the infuser out and use the teapot with teabags too so it is, in fact the only teapot you need. Ha ha yeah right. The thing is
that these teapots come in very nice bright colours so you could have
different colours depending on your mood or colour of mug to accompany
it. Any excuse to buy more.
When it arrived by the nice Amazon driver I was a little surprised by the
size. No I didn't really check when I ordered it but I was expecting quite a
large one. This one is a one mug size (440ml) and that's fine because I
sometimes only want one cup but there is a larger size which holds two
mugs(530ml) so if you fancy one just take note of the size.
This teapot isn't cheap at £20.68 but apparently it is supposed to last a lifetime so we'll see. If anyone can put it to the test I can with the amount of
tea I drink. You can see why I thought it was going to be bigger for that
price but I do love it and I am using a lot. It's trendy, looks modern in
lime green and I have a nice mug to match. I get to drink my loose leaf
which I love so I am happy.
They are available, as I said from many retailers including John Lewis andTesco but here is a link (affiliated) to Amazon......
If you fancy the bigger size here is the link to the 530ml
So go on order one and make a nice brew!! Just don't get a teapot addiction like me. I've had to go on decaf tea as I was buzzing too much on the
caffeine, it was giving me a bit of a rush and I don't rush very often I can
tell you so I've had to rein in the caffeine intake. Some people can drink
loads and loads but it makes my heart beat a bit fast so not only, as I get older do I find I can't take my alcohol very well I also struggle with fully
leaded tea and coffee. I'm a little confused about what to drink to have a
good time, looks like it's one glass of wine or a latte and I'm ready to
So there we leave the teapot for this Tuesday, please feel free to join me
tomorrow when I throw caution to the wind and chat about absolutely
anything on Whatever Wednesday.
For now take care......
Everything tea related, from teashops, teabags, teapots, teacups, tea bags or loose leaf tea, and of course the all important tea chat..
