Tea Pots & Cozies

Not only is using a tea pot an excellent way of serving tea, it is also an excellent way of making it. Here are some helpful suggestions.

The sizes shown are the manufacturer's claim of the total capacity up to the brim, not necessarily of the usable capacity. It is generally best to fill only to the bottom of the spout opening, especially if the teapot is of the type that you can also use for boiling the water.

Heat the tea pot by rinsing it out with very hot water. (Do not heat the tea pot over a burner unless specific instructions state otherwise.)

Measure tea accurately and consistently. The recommended dose for a medium leaf is 1 tablespoon per 5 oz. of water (more for larger leaves, less for smaller leaves), and adjust to taste.  Place tea in an infuser to keep the leaves separated, or right in the pot if you'll filter them out later.

Pour water from the kettle into the tea pot when it reaches a rolling boil.

Steeping tea for the proper amount of time can make a world of difference in its resulting taste. Not less than 3 minutes, nor more than 5 minutes for the best taste. (Less than 3 and the taste is not given enough time to develop; more than 5 and tannin will begin to make your cup astringent or bitter.)

If using an infuser, remove it after the steeping is done. If the leaves are loose in the pot, strain out the entire contents into cups right after steeping is done.

Keep the pot hot by using a tea cozy, or a covering to keep heat from escaping the pot. (Do not heat the tea pot over a burner, unless specific directions allow it.)

The stainless serving pitchers provide another elegant way to serve. Use the small one for a single or two cups of tea, or for milk or cream. The larger ones can be used for tea, coffee, water, etc. The lids help keep the liquids warm or cold.

The Hand Made Traditional Brown Betty Tea Pot

During Queen Victoria's reign, tea became a symbol of Britain's greatest period of expansion and stability. Every home owned a teapot, even if it was a basic "Brown Betty". Tea was no longer a refined, upper class beverage but a basis of a whole meal.

While Charleston dancers and many Victorian glamours have disappeared from the scene, the humble "Brown Betty" teapot has still remained a firm favorite. Its origins go back to the end of the 17th century and to the birth of the British ceramic teapot; although in 1700 an ordinary small unglazed teapot made of Red Clay from the Bradwell Woods area in Stoke-on-Trent was a luxury item costing about 12 shillings.

Brown Betty Teapots are still made in Stoke-on-Trent, formed from clay which comes from the same area where Elder Brothers found clay in 1695. The method of producing was "jollying" but over the years it is now modified to slip casting which gives the pot an even thickness and smooth finish both inside and out.

Succeeding generations of English men have proved that the Brown Betty, as these Red Ware teapots are affectionately known, make the best pot of tea in the world. The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to be gently swirled around as the boiling water is added, this producing an exquisite infusion. The Red Terracotta Clay with its Rockinham Glaze, coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea.

Each pot bears a Union Jack sticker to show its British workmanship.
