  • Non drippy teapot?

    Can anyone recommend a really good non-drippy or leaky teapot?

    Last night as I emptied the tea leaves over the balcony, a frog jumped on my leg and gave me a fright upon which I threw the teapot into the backyard.

    It now doesnt hold tea anymore. SO Im on the hunt for the ultimate teapot. I havent found it yet in all my years of tea snobbery. So Id love some recommendations.

    oh and it has to be white.

        Knowing very little about that alternative caffeine beverage and its accutriments, how does a tea pot leak or drip?

          Generally they dribble from the spout a bit and when you finish pouring they still hold a drip sometimes that needs a wee shake to get rid of.

          The Beehouse teapots are very good and dont tend to do this.

            Some very "interesting" designs on that site you linked to Mal

            Makes my Twinnings Infusior look a big boring. But that is okay means the coffee things can be more of a focus.

                Thank Lucinda,

                That teapot looks just the ticket. I shall track it down. And I really like Japanese ceramic - I have some crackle glaze cups that are a similar hue.

                Thanks Mal.... er I think...

                Actually I thought the teapots were all quite beautiful and unique but probably not going to cut it for the evening russian caravan. ;D

                Cheers

                    Oh, I dunno, some of those pots might go well with that dirty sock tea a.k.a Russian Caravan!  :P ;D

                      I bought a new white teapot from the local salvos store - they obviously bought a bulk lot from somewhere. Small and doesnt drip - cost a dollar.

                        There are some really nice teapots here also. Look for the white french one. I want to get the fancy cast iron Japanese one because it is meant to retain heat the best but its really expensive.

                        (Sorry cant provide a direct link its one of those irritating flash websites, but well worth a look.)

                          How about sticking some clear beverage tubing on the end of the spout?
