London Pottery Farmhouse Loose Leaf Teapot : Just right

There’s something special about making tea with leaves and not bags. Nothing wrong with bags but the flavor is far superior with leaves. I take one star off for the, ever so slightly, over complicated design of the filter. It doesn’t need to be that secure. Now i’m off to put the kettle on for afternoon tea and bikkies.

Delivery courier careless, but teapot fine and doesn’t drip.

I absolutely love this teapot because i finally have a teapot that doesn’t dribble. It pours so well it’s a dream. It arrived today earlier than anticipated so that was a lovely surprise.

I’ve tried quite a few teapots over the past couple of years, glass ones, pottery ones, ones with filters, ones without. I’ve never been satisfied though, until nowthis teapot is well made, pours without dribbling everywhere, the filter is nice and large allowing the leaves to move around and it fits into the pot very securely. The lid fits with or without the filter in place (most don’t – chatsfords especially). The red colour is great and makes me smile every time i use it and it’s the perfect size for two large mugs of fabulous tea, with no stray tea leaves floating about in them. Yes, it seems i am in love with a teapot.

  • Fantastic product for the price
  • On the heavy side,but is a good teapot 🙂
  • Not as good as it used to be

Needed to replace a cheap and cracked teapot – this pot is such an upgrade. Easy to use for bags or leaf tea. I really look forward to my weekend morning tea now, pot easily fills two very large mugs.

Use this teapot daily for a loose leaf tea brew. Easy to use, empty and clean. Cheerful colour brightens the day. Is quite heavy if used to a different type of teapot.

The best teapot i have had inthe past 50 years.

Since receiving the above teapot a couple of days ago i have had the best cups of tea in years. I had forgotten how a good cup of tea can taste with loose tea. The teapot itself is as described and pours without any drips. Lovely quality and would recommend to anyone.

This teapot is just right for one person, large enough for two teacups or one large mug. The container for the leaves is pierced with very fine holes and works really well, it keeps the leaves in and drains quickly. The filter was difficult to remove the first time i used it but not the second time. People have found a problem with place the lid, but so long as the vent is located opposite the spring lever and is entered vent first, the lid will sit securely in place and give a reasonable seal. If the pot is used without its filter the lid may fall off, but i bought it to filter my tea so why would i leave the filter out?this pot is exactly what i wanted and it’s inexpensive.

Great little teapot, makes the use of leaf tea easy & so now i finish my day not only with a pot of tea, but with a different tea every day. Making the modern traditional.

Perfect size for 2 generous cups/mugs, plus a small top up. I’d read that it has disappointed some because it drips on pouring and if the filter isn’t in, the lid will fall off. If you pour/ tip quickly, it may drip, but had no problems when pouring normally. If i use it without the filter ( because ive used a tea bag ) the lid is a little looser, but you just put your finger on the lid as you tip – no problem.

I bought one of these a in 2013 and have used it daily, great teapot for one person that likes a good couple of mug-fulls of tea in the morning. Unfortunately recently the lid fell off the side and smashed so i re-ordered one this month. I am disappointed to find the current model is a different shape, meaning the spout dribbles awfully and it holds 150ml less liquid (yes i did measure it). I shall be using the old pot with the new lid.

It is very heavy when full – you’ll need both hands to pick it up and pour out of this teapot. But then, i was wanting a chunky and big (big enough for 3 big mugs of tea) teapot, so i can’t really complain. Pros:the lid stays in place well when tipped to pour. Big enough for 3 big mugs of tea. The infuser is of very good quality – it clicks on, is big, does not allow even the fine tea leaves to escape, and is long enough so you can make just one cup of tea for yourself, too (which is a major thing as a lot of big teapots are designed without taking into account that sometimes people only need to make one cup of tea for themselves) con:it’s heavy – but then, it’s a big and chunky teapot so i should’ve expected that. Overall: very happy with the purchase :).

A lovely traditional looking teapot with filter (reason i purchased) but the filter is difficult to get in and out and tea spills / dribbles from the spout. Im disappointed especially as it was for a present and initially looked great. Is now used without the filter and extra care to prevent spills from the spout. For info – actual size of this pot – one mug (approx half pint) or two normal tea cups.

Good teapot for solo use when using loose leaf tea. The tea leaves go in the basket which lifts out once its infused sufficently.

Love this teapot beautiful colour, received in good condition.

Well made, functional and easy to keep clean. My day is kicked off with two large mugs of earl grey tea and this gives me just the quantity i need. This is the second tea pot i have had of this model and will continue to be faithful as long as it wants me.

Wasn’t sure how to rate ‘flavour’ but the leaves i used were refreshing. I love my pot mind, the spout was dip free.

Got this for the office, its huge, well made and pours perfectly.

I love the removable metal infuser.

I really enjoy a proper cup of tea made with tea leaves and with the in built tea leaf holder its brilliant and it just tastes better out of a teapot=. Well made and it cleans really easy.

    I wouldn’t recommend this teapot simply because it tends to dribble from the spout. I’ve had worse, but this is just not good enough. Pretty essential in my view, that a teapot reliably delivers the tea into the cup and not onto the table. The colour is not as bright as the photo. The filter is a good size and has a fine mesh, and it’s securely attached to the pot with a spring clip. Easy to remove for cleaning. The top is a good fit and also clips on. Capacity is good for two 260ml mugs or 2 to 3 cups. So, some plus points, but definitely not the best pourer.

    This teapot looks nice but it is terrible to use. It either gushes out or drips out, missing the cup/mug each time. It would be very difficult to get “a perfect pour” as described. Spills tea all over the work surface. Will be returning as a teapot shouldn’t be that difficult to use. This was to replace a london pottery teapot which i’ve had a long time but the lid has broken and it’s impossible to replace just the lid – the old teapot poured perfectly. Unfortunately the new teapot lid is a slightly different shape to the old teapot lid, so i can’t even take the lid to use on the old pot.

    I prefer loose tea and this pot allows me to remove the leaves after the tea is properly steeped so it doesn’t go bitter.

      I bought this to replace one i bought in the tea shop in covent garden. This one is a poor pourer, suddenly going from a slow pour to a gush. It is much heavier and has a narrower spout and handle.
