Product Rating
Description
This generously sized glass teapot is composed of Borosilicate glass which tends to be stronger and more heat resistant than conventional glassware, yet appears more delicate with an air of sophistication. The pure ore used in this glass teapot allows light to travel through the glass wall, giving the pot a translucent feel while illuminating the tea liqueur floating within. This glass teapot is the ideal way to appreciate the color and clarity of fine tea. The Belle Amitié means "Beautiful Friends" which you will undoubtedly invite to take part in the tea steeped with love. 32oz (945mL) capacity.

        Great Teapot

            Unlike most reviewers, I got this teapot to brew tea, not to slam on the counter. I have knocked it on the sink once, but there were absolutely no signs of damage.

            I mostly use this teapot for blooming teas, for which you don't need the infuser, but I have done loose tea in it many times as well and have had virtually no problems with the way it infuses.

            The teapot looks great and, with proper handling, works great. I've had mine for 2 years and it has survived a lot of use and even a couple of moves to other states. It may not be for everyone, but it was definitely for me.

            Don't waste your money

            By NikkiD

            The infuser doesn't drain. I've had to use a spoon to move the tea out of the way of the "holes" and it still won't drain properly.

            The lid cracked less than a week after I bought I bought it.

            I'm highly disappointed in this product.

            Awful drainage

            By Youthberry Lover

            from Seattle, WA

            Purchased this to surprise my mom. Looks really nice by itself until you actually try to use it. The strainer doesn't train the tea at all. Too fragile.

            Too Fragile, No replacement parts

            Aesthetically a beautiful teapot, functionally impractical due to poor infuser design. also, unless you live in a padded home it is far to fragile for daily use. Broke the infuser washing it in the ceramic sink 2nd week I has it. And when I search for an exact replacement they have none for this model. So, if you plan to use it as decorative/special occasion shelf ornament it would be fine. For every day use far to fragile and dysfunctional.

            The teapot is nice, but the infuser is useless. Pieces of tea clogged up the hole of the glass filer and small pieces of tea were not filtered out. I bought a Finum gold filter and I am happy with the combination.

            Can't Keep it Warm

                  I would use a tea light to try to keep the water hot, but it never worked, which is weird because at the store it always works.
                  I love the look, and it's nice to have it out on cold fall/winter days.
                  Love the removable glass filter built in.

                        I love the teapot but it can't be used with the glass warmer. I bought the set and the warmer will not stay lit with this teapot on it.

                        More fragile than delicate.

                        from Roseville, CA

                        We bought this tea pot because we had a bunch of Teavana teas and we just assumed that with a teapot from Teavana, there was no way we could go wrong.We were also on a slight budget, and since the rest of the teapots were upwards of 50 bucks, we settled on this one. It wasn't outrageously priced, it looked fairly pretty, and while it wasn't anything special, we wanted a teapot soon.We used it perhaps two times before the middle filter broke. The top also broke after it fell off and onto the counter. Not the floor, the counter. The glass was so fragile, cheap, and thin that it just shattered. This teapot was not worth the [$]. It felt cheap in hand, the glass is terrible, and the filter does not work as well as I had thought. The only good thing about this teapot was that it looked nice while it lasted.

                              Someone in customer service recommended the Belle Amite teapot to me--said it was his favorite one. It IS a beautiful teapot--the mouth was big enough for me to get my hand into, so I'd be able to clean it easily. The problem was the glass infuser inside--it has the little slits cut at the bottom. When I began adding the water the tea immediately begins to swell, and then it's not long before the water won't drain from the infuser into the pot, and you have about half the water in the pot, and about half still in the infuser. Ended up having to raise the infuser and use a spoon to move the tea around to clear it so it would drain. Really disappointed--was excited to have a pretty tea pot, but I'll stick with the PerfectTea Maker.
