This simple but well-designed teapot fetures spherical drop shape that provides even distribution of the heat and allows tea leaves to unfold fully while steeping. A tight-fitting lid prevents the hot air from escaping. A short wide spout allows you to decant the infusion quickly avoiding over-brewing.. A convenient handle guarantees an easy but secure grip eliminating the risk of burning the hand. Thick clay walls keep the tea hot, soaking up the flavor of the infusion. So after every usage it will enrich the taste of your tea more and more. The attractive crackle glaze was created with the help of so called craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the clay.
