Would have prefered that the metal was more extensive and incorporated legs -like the bigger models.
The size is fine for two mugs of tea, maybe a little more. The infuser is plastic, narrow, deep. The reason for the spiky nature of the infuser is unclear. Being glass, the tea stays hot, under a cosy. The second cup is stronger though the infuser can be removed easily. The teapot has a vaguely modern look to it.
Really happy with this product.

, love this teapot – stylish and practical
I have quite a few tea leaves seap through into water so it doesn’tfilter completely, then u have tea leaves in your cup which is not nicewhen you are drinking it. Other than that it keeps hot, and doesn’t leak ordrip which is a huge plus.
A great product for mass consumption of tea. The filter doesn’t catch all of the smaller leaves, so a small amount of sediment left at the bottom of the jug. I’ve found this to be the case with other alternatives too, so its no deal breaker in my book.
I have had no issues with it.
Love it makes great tea from leaves the insert however stains brown from tea.
Perfect for purpose and much cheaper than in the usual shops. It provides a good quality however very easy to break the glass but if you take care of it it is not a problem.
Love this teapot – stylish and practical. Tea in fuses well and even though the glass is thin it retains the heat.
Needed a nice teapot to brew my fruit infusions. This pot does the job perfectly, keeps the tea warm and looks lovely. Came on time and well protected.
Gtreat product – recommended.
