I bought this teapot in order to use with the blooming teas bc it is clear glass and you can see the tea blossom as it steeps. It looks good and is a great value. The one negative thing is you can't fill water to the top bc of where the spout is. You can only fill up to the spout . The removable strainer is nice to have if you want to use loose tea.
I received it today. Although it is very novel and cute, I am not sure his pants will hold - stay - up over use. The pants are not a snug fit. I'm worried that use of hot water over time will make the pants too loose and will separate from the shirt. I am putting it in the dishwasher top shelf later to give a good washing before I use the tea strainer. I bought this because I really needed just a tea strainer due to my metal one was getting rust spots on it. I figured a silicone one would not get rusty over time. A little pricey, however time will tell if this one will be worth the money I spent. If you like cute and funny - I would recommend. If you are practical and thrifty I would not.
I love my glass teapot. It sits on my counter-top, and I use it almost everyday with green tea & a jasmine bloom for the most authentic Chinese hot tea. I even add a sugar cube or two while it's steeping - it is the perfect cup of tea! The votive underneath adds the perfect restaurant touch. I feel like I am fine dining in my own home. If you like tea (and you should because it's so good for you!), get this! Easy to clean and use!
