I received this teapot for Christmas and have used it many times since. Though I was apprehensive about using this teapot (due to the negative review on Teapigs website) I can happily say I’ve not had any problems with this. I can steep a litre (35oz) of tea for a good long session, or steep enough to fill my flask for iced tea.
The steeping egg can fit up to roughly 15g of black or blended tea (without much room to expand) and for my taste it’s a nice strength. A little on the light side for some teas so not suitable for everything but for your generic blends and the odd Oolong or unflavoured black it’s great. Plus once it’s steeped for however long needed I can just pull the egg steeper up and remove it from the water, making sure I don’t oversteep. Oversteeping is a problem with my Adagio PersonaliTEA pot so at least now I have something more suitable.
I would recommend this teapot, especially for flavoured tea blends, it’s a welcomed edition to my tea family.
