This teapot has traditional teatime style and brews enough for you and a friend. With a scratch-free glaze, it resists staining, odors and cracking, and features a large handle for easy gripping. Preparing loose tea in it is simple: fill the stainless steel infuser halfway with loose tea, place infuser inside the pot and then slowly fill the pot with hot water. The large infuser gives the tea leaves room to expand and steep to maximum flavor and aroma, and when your tea is infused to your preferred strength, simply pour and enjoy. Dishwasher safe.
