No office can function without copious amounts of tea. Water is good for washing your car and flushing the toilet, but at the end of the day, when you need a drink that you can depend on, tea is the drink that delivers.
In an effort to maximise our tea consumption, we invested in a teapot over the weekend. After extensive research, we opted for a 2.2 litre enamel model in antique piss yellow. Expectations were high: could the Â£5.99 tea weapon really change our lives?…
The answer is an emphatic YES!
Capacity: 10/10 – with reckless over-filling it can deliver 5 generous mugs of piping hot tea.
Safety: 2/10 – the exterior gets rather hot; the lid is a real scalding threat.
Pouring: 10/10 – dispensing tea doesn’t get better than this – smooth, non-drip action, a delight to behold.
Design: 7/10 – traditional, solid, reliable, and, most importantly, non-threatening.
Cleaning: 9/10 – easily rinsed and de-bagged via the big hole in the top – genius!
Value: 10/10 – it paid for itself on its debut – what more can you ask for?
If you like tea, don’t miss this!
