Though these teapots look delicate, borosilicate glass lends them superior heat resistance and strength. The exceptionally clear glass lets you savor the beauty of the tea as you sip. The Republic of Tea logo is etched beneath each saucer and pot. We do not recommend use of this teapot on a stovetop.
What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...

This teapot is adorable and works well. I was concerned the handle might get really hot, but I haven't had any issue with it. This criticism is possibly due to my ignorance of what constitutes a "cuppa tea" , but when I bought the teapot, I did so expecting it to hold and heat two cups or 16 ounces of water. It is not a 16 ounce tea pot. It is more like a 10 ounce tea pot. I would have given it a five teapot rating if it had met my 16 ounce expectation.

Loved it, just the right size for me and you can see your tea coming to life.
Beautiful and functional

I received this pot as a gift along with the glass warmer. It makes a beautiful tea time piece and it keeps my tea at a perfect sipping temperature. Plus my rose petal tea looks like a Valentine advertisement when the rose petals unfurl in the water. I recommend this to anyone who love more than one cuppa their favorite tea!
