I thought I knew something about tea until I encountered the Rare Tea Company. The teas and teapot I purchased have changed my tea game and maybe even, my life! And it all began with reading Infused! I realize now what I had been missing all these years in my tea drinking. Wonderful, subtle and magnificent cups of tea have been steeped and savored since I began a customer/devotee of the Rare Tea Company! Thank you RTC for taking some of the sting out of Sheltering in Place-everything seems a little rosier when I have one of your cups of tea, brewed in my adorable one cup teapot! Best Regards!
I struggled to find a genuinely one-cup teapot, but here it is. Beautifully made, tiny, just right for a 150ml teacup. Lovely quality and feels sturdy for its size. I was apprehensive about ordering a breakable item online, but it was perfectly packaged. It is so pretty that I have put it on my windowsill to act as a decorative item between uses!
I used to have to measure 150ml with a digital scale but now I just pour the water to the rim! The pot is small, but well made. No small imperfection (tiny bumps) that I can see. No tacky insignia (but probably made in China as all things are). The built-in filter filters out large leaves (antler, white peony ..etc.) with ease. The color is ... I would call a dignified white. Not hurt-the-eyes sharp, definitely no neglected-teeth yellow hue. It is like fresh cream in the shape of an adorable tea pot.
