- Dessert Tea
I collect tea sets and recently received this one for my birthday. The style is refreshing and despite its brilliant white cleans quite easily. The most important thing about a teapot for me is the way it pours. The tea must not drip back down the spout when you are completing your pour. This one particularly has nice neat pour which is essential because any tea that dripped would stand out against the white body. I don't think this is a set for first timers because it does not have a strainer or ball included and the orchid appliques are quite fragile. Despite receiving this as a gift I know its price and find it quite reasonable for the quality and size of the set. I will be using it for my spring and summer sit downs.

It's a beautiful ceramic teapot. However, it is very delicate and very pricey!

I had been wanting this set since I laid eyes on it and I got this for Christmas. I have yet to use it, but it is an absolutely beautiful tea set. The box that holds the tea set is even gorgeous. It was ordered online and shipped to me in pristine condition. Teavana did a wonderful job with packing the order--not a single item was cracked, chipped, or broken. I will update my review once I have put my tea set to use! :)
- Looks good
- No directions or strainer
I am a man with no tea background, but thought this would be a nice gift for my girlfriend. I thought it looked great in the store display, so I asked to purchase it. The Teavana employee said great, grabbed a box, and rang me out.
When my girlfriend opened it, there were no instructions on how to use it and no strainer in the set. Looking online on different sites (teavana has no information that I can find), I came across some information: You have to purchase a strainer separately (I would have bought it in the store if I would have known), you cannot put this on direct heat (which thankfully we didn't). The employee at teavana was absolutely no help, I feel he should have went over these things with me, he knew I didn't know anything about teapots. The store was crowded and I feel he just wanted to make a quick sale. I may change my review to a higher rating once we find proper usage instructions.
