Puckator Routemaster Bus Tea For One Set – Five Stars

Bought for a xmas present suggested for by my sister for my nephew who loves a cup of tea and who’s dad is a bus driver. It appears to be a lovely little set, quirky but good value.

It was just how i was hoping for.

Noticed when used that the beak was broken and leakes a little when used. Did not contact the seller as used for the first time a long time after being bought and a leak is not a big one- maybe a problem during delivery?.

  • Great novelty pot
  • Quirky gift for my nephew
  • Three Stars

Unfortunately does not pour well enough to use.

Bought as presents and they’re great.

Bought it for my godfather and he loved it.

Did buy it for myself cause i find it cute but my husband is over usin it . As a tea lover i couldn’t expect better than a double decker tea for one set.

I bought this tea pot and cup for my friend as she always moans that i don’t have a tea pot, so she is very happy now that i have bought this.

Really cool item however teapot was chipped and cup has paint smudges on it.

As a londoner living a long way from home these days, anything that reminds me of home and the routemaster bus from my childhood (and my wedding day transportation) is a winner. This is a nice sized teapot and cup (not dishwasher safe) that brings a smile to my face. I would have preferred a saucer with the cup to put my spoon and biscuit on and the teapot dribbles badly.

An xmas present which recipient loves.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible leaking teapot

    If you like to drink your tea from your lap off of the table,the floor well anywhere apart the cup then this is the perfect tea pot and cup for you. Teapot leaks and pours tea anywhere but the cup. Absolutely useless do not buy.

    1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor pouring - water everywhere
      Such a shame because this is a lovely looking teapot and cup. The problem is that it is more or less unusable. When pouring, a torrent of water flows down the underside of the spout rather than into the cup. This is a known problem with teapots, so much so that it has formed the subject of scientific research papers (surface tension or something else). The problem with this teapot is the extreme nature of the problem – it is almost comical to witness more tea ending up on the table than in the cup. It’s also just very bad design. A hydrophobic glaze on the spout would have reduced the problem. As it is, there is no way at all that this nice looking teapot can be recommended for actual use. If you are thinking of buying this for a child – first tea making set – then, seriously, forget it.
