        Cast iron may be expensive, but trust me, it's worth it! Not only that it looks good and is durable, it just makes the tea taste better! This cast iron teapot is beautiful and I'm really glad I invested in it.

        This is my first cast iron teapot & my first teapot with an infuser. I am very impressed with it! I've had mine for a year now & there is very little discoloration at the bottom of the teapot (but I think that could be from the tray that it's on - it's black & copper). It steeps perfectly each time, the handle does not get hot, and it's just a really pretty teapot! I'm very happy with it.

        Rusty top

        By Mom of 4

        from Goldsboro NC

        Verified Reviewer

        I bought this pot and was super excited to get it home. I used it and FOLLOWED directions on how to dry it. The next day there was RUST around the top where the lid should sit. I was able to wipe it off, but still. The pot is beautiful and if you wish to keep it blue, do not wipe the outside of the pot with a towel, papertowel or anything. It does not drip when pouring and keeps the tea hot when placed in the pot. I love my pot, just wish the things about it could be fixed!!!

          Love This Pot

          By Eicy

          from Illinois

          I purchased this for myself in the black/gold along with a warmer and cups. I am the only tea drinker in the house so the size is good and large enough for a few cups. I find that the tea will stay hot on the warmer if the tea light is new. Once the candle gets down to about half way or less, it will not keep the pot hot enough. Other than that, I am happy with my choice. The cups do get very hot.

            I couldn't wait to receive my new teapot. It was even better than I expected. Wonderful quality & workmanship, a real show piece. The teas are fabulous, the best I've ever had. Great way to de-stress at the end of a busy day. My husband was also very impressed with both the cast iron teapot and the teas we received. Highly recommend it!

            Cute little teapot

            By nyc

            from nyc

            The fish design on the pot I received wasn't as distinct as in the picture. It almost looked like the fish was rubbing off a bit. But it's still attractive so I'm keeping it. The size is really nice. This is my first cast iron tea pot so I'm not sure how common these issues are, but some cons with this pot are that whenever I pour I feel I have to hold the lid down to keep it from falling off and crushing my double walled tea cups- and because the top of the lid gets so hot I can only hold it down while using a silicone mitt. When the tea is done steeping taking out the mesh filter isn't easy because it's hot and there's no easy handle to pull it out. Again I use a silicone mitt to grip the inside of the filter and pull it out before putting the lid back on again. Takes a little getting used to. Makes very good tea once you get the hang of it. I get about 3 cups of 6-7 oz of tea from it, making it a nice size for one or two people.

            Excellent and beautiful

            By Val

            from Texas

            I received this little teapot from my daughter for my birthday. I was so excited to start using it that even before I read the directions I was very pleased to see it holds 21 oz. of tea. Another big plus is it does not drip during or after you pour the tea. This is a huge plus for me since everything else I've used does drip at one point or another.

                    It is the perfect size if you are making tea for yourself and another. Also on a side note, i do have a complaint, but not about the teapot, since it IS cast iron and has the right enameling, you can use it on your stove, or on a gas stove for those who know how to use one. It makes me quite irate that i hear from workers at your store that you cannot place them on stovetops to heat water, that is just ignorance at work. It is cast iron, use common sense.

                    Otherwise, i love this teapot, and the quality of the teas i get from teavana, keep it up! <3
