This teapot has quite a history. Its origins date back to the end of the 17th Century and the birth of the British Ceramic Teapot.The original unglazed teapot was made out of red clay from the Bradell Woods area in Stoke-on-Trent. Today the Brown Betty teapot is still made in Stoke-on-Trent with the same clay from the original area. British people believe the Brown Betty makes the best pot of tea because of the type of clay that is used and the shape of the pot.
This teapot is lovingly hand-made in Staffordshire England. Because these teapots are hand made, there may be some slight imperfections.
These teapots are not intended for use in a microwave or on a stovetop. We recommend an electric tea kettle to boil the water for brewing your tea. Brown Bettys are dishwasher safe, however the best care is to rinse in hot water and allow to air dry.
For the long life of your precious Brown Betty Teapot, here are a few tips: –
Never pour boiling water directly inside the teapot. The pot should be warmed first. To warm, add hot warm water into the teapot and pour it out again, then wait for 2 to 3 minutes to pour the hot water inside the teapot after adding the tea leaves.
