Really easy to clean and keeps the flavour of the tea.. I did drop it from a small height and it didn't smash!! So durable.
This is another thing to take up space in the kicthen, but my wife really liekd it, the tea tastes nice, so all in all was a good buy. Well made and easy to clean. If you need a far eatern tea set, this one is pretty good.
The Chinese teapot is a great gift for the tea drinker in your life. Not only does it come with three tins of tea, two cups, and one pot, but it also has a beautiful design that will look good on any shelf or table.
The set comes with three tins of tea: mint, olong and green. The instructions are simple: fill the teapot with hot water, add your desired amount of tea leaves (the more you add, the stronger your brew), then let it steep for about five minutes before serving. The teapot is large enough to make 8 cups at once.
The teapot itself is made from porcelain, so it's easy to clean and will last for years even with regular use. It comes in blue and white colour, and has an elegant shape that makes it perfect.
The first thing I will say about this tea set is don't be put off by the size. The set comes with three tins of loose tea, two small tea cups and a deceptively small tea pot. The reason I say the tea pot is "deceptively" small is because it is. It appears to look very small yet I easily got 1lt of boiling water into the pot and with the stainer and some loose leaf. The pot is therefore deceptive as it has a large capacity, enough for four large cups of tea or many of the small tea cups like the two that are included.
The only negative thing about this product is that it only comes with the two cups yet Asian and African coffee / tea cups usually come in sets of six so there's enough cups for guests.
Frokm the information that comes with this product this is an environmentally friendly product whereby the teas are selected, cut and processed by hand, with no machinery used. The only carbon use is in the production of the pot and the cups and as they will last many years there is extremely little damage to0 the environment. Additionally, the product is shipped by container so it may be much, much slower to arrive at it's destination it also helps by reducing the environmental impact.
Overall, I like the product, I like the concept of not using machinery in the production of the teas, I like the quality of the product even though four or six cups would be better than two. This is a quality product with good value and I am recommending it.
This is really a nice set. I have several teapots and this is my newest to add to my collection. I love how they match in a modern yet somewhat traditional style as well.
Everything is very solid so you don't feel like its dainty set and easily broken. I like that the teapot has a bamboo handle because it helps make it easier to lift when the contents are hot. The small cups do not have handles, but they are perfect for this type of set. And even though the cups do not hold as much liquid as my other cups, it still makes for a nice serving size.
Overall, this teapot has a surprising large capacity, pours well, and the strainer basket is perfect. I certainly would recommend it! Would make a beautiful and high quality gift idea as well.
