This is my favourite teapot because not only is it very pretty, its well designed in shape and balance for handling and pouring, has a generously large strainer with plenty of room for tea leaves. Good quality production and materials. Whoevever named this teapot “Purple” is colourblind though. Its a warm blue, the image advertised does show its colour accurately on my Samsung S7, unlike the other blue teapot i bought from here which misled me with its photo. Very fast delivery from NZ to Tasmania and good price.
