- Love my Teapot!
It's a very cute, nicely shaped teapot. The lid is Guanyin relief. It's gorgeous. Brewed first pot of tea using a teabag. Nice capacity, had 3 cups. Four is possible if you're not using as much tea, perhaps with a strong black. I preheated the pot before putting in the teabag and fresh boiled water. When I poured the final cup approximately 45 minutes after the first, the tea was still warm. I am anxious to get some loose tea so I can try making a pot using it. I did some research before buying and this was the best rated one. Only one thing is the package arrived later then expected. But just a small thing for me. I am glad that I made this purchase & would recommend this teapot to anyone who wants a perfect size pot that keeps your tea drinking warm.
