I really like this tea pot. For $10 you just can’t go wrong. It’s made of quite durable glass, has a well fitting plastic lid and a very fine, durable steeping basket. It’s fine enough to steep rooibos without loosing any through the mesh. It pours perfectly with no dripping. And the minimalist design pleases me.
One of my favourite features of this pot is that the steeping basket fits perfectly in almost every mug I own (the perfect diameter to fit into the mug, and tall enough to come right to the lip,) so it’s excellent for making just one cup of tea, if a pot is too much.
I am on my second pot. The first one held up well for quite a while, and then a big chunk of glass just popped out of the bottom one day when I put the pot down on the counter. My second pot has seen regular use for over a year without any issues.
