First of all, the teapot looks good. Second, it brews the tea and then you remove the little device that holds the leaves so your second cup isn’t stewed. As a guide, this 4 cup size makes 2 good mugfuls – the usual half pint mug. Don’t plump for the smaller one if you usually drink mugs of tea.
Prompt service, well packaged. Pours nicely without dripping & lid very secure due to the internal lid slot. Very pleased with my purchase & wud buy another as a gift or buy a larger one if needed.
These teapots are very good if you prefer to use leaf tea.
Like so many other reviewers this is my second chatsford teapot: had to discard the first one because the glaze cracked. It is such a brilliant design that i have given it a second chance and bought another one. It doesn’t drip, the tea filter is great and it is a good size for two large mugs. The blue is a lovely colour too. Fingers crossed that the first one was just from a bad batch and this one will last a good long time.
I like one that i can put tealeaves in for my guests. Too fiddly to use a strainer. Just the right size for breakfast.
London Teapot Company-Chatsford 4-Cup Teapot with One Red Filter, Blue : Hardly elegant but it works effectively. The tea holder inside fits well whilst containing loose tea.
Love this tea pot however, its not a 4 cup tea pot. The integral filter is brilliant, but this is where you loose the space.
I had this teapot for over 10 years and loved it. It required replacing due to being cracked (by me) and i was so glad to find the exact item on amazon. It is just the right size, pours well and the leaf tea holder works a treat.
A perfectly serviceable and attractive teapot but the glazing of mine crazed all over about a year and a half after purchase, despite no heavy or careless usage on my part.
What i really like about this teapot is how well designed it is; it doesn’t drip, it pours really well in a predictable manner. The strainer works as it should, and since the pot is designed around it, one can have the lid on at the same time, something that isn’t possible with many other pots and after market strainers. There is a tab on the lid so it can’t fall off if the lid is placed correctly, and even if the lid is placed incorrectly it is unlikely to fall off because one can empty the pot completely long before it is held at 90 degrees angle. The handle works well for one handed operation without getting the fingers anyway near the hot pot. The opening is large enough that it is very easy to clean the inside thoroughly with a simple brush. The pot and lid weighs around 600g according to my scales. The company is based in london, but i strongly suspect that the tea pot isn’t made in the uk. The lack of stated place of manufacture is however the only complaint i have about this tea pot.
A very stylish blue teapot with an integral strainer. It pours perfectly and holds enough to fill four small mugs. The strainer has a large capacity and is very easy to empty and clean. To enjoy tea untainted by the aftertaste of teabags is one of life’s simple pleasures.
Unless its a microscopic cup you wont get 4 cups out of this, two is what we get.
I bought this teapot for a friend who kept complaining that he couldn’t find a teapot to filter tea leaves. This pot does the job wonderfully and gives two good mugs of tea. It looks lovely and you can remove the filter easily if you don’t want the tea to get any stronger.
I have decided to change back to loose tea which in my opinion tastes so much better but i didnt want the hassle of a seperate strainer this pot has a unique design which means no loose tea in the cup its a good solid product not cheapbut the quality is excellent.
