Ten Best Teapots

28 August 2014

It’s no secret that here at Aquatec – the Pure Water People we love a good cup of tea. It goes without saying that the quality of the tea and the purity of the water are first and foremost when it comes to making an excellent cuppa. And then there are a whole host of preparatory stages to get right – check out our blog on How to Make the Best Tea – for more on this. Then we turn our attention to the teapot. We have rounded up the ten best teapots by character so that you can find your perfect brewing partner:

The Innovator

The Sorapot by Joey Roth is the pinnacle of contemporary design, combining elegance with ingenuity.

 

The Vintage

This Art Deco Eiffel tower teapot and hot water urn has everything a retrophile could want – stylish 1920’s lines,  contrasting chrome and Bakerite, of course, an element of kitsch playfulness.

There are a plethora of animal teapots on the market ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous – we think that any animal lover will find this sculpted piece from South African artist Fée Halsted’s Ardmore collective delightful.

The Thirsty

If you have a big tea-thirsty family or work in a cafe then you can’t beat the classic 6 pint stainless steel catering teapot. More tea anyone?
