|Brown Betty English Ceramic Teapot
Red clay deposits were discovered in the Bradwell Woods area of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England in 1695. The first pots produced from this clay were a novel and expensive luxury given that most tea accoutrements at that time came from China. The same red clay is still used today.
As tea became more accessible to the general population so did the “Brown Betty” teapot. A standard in every English home by the 1850’s, the red earthenware pot has become synonymous with a perfect cup of tea. The shape inside the pot ensures a superior brew for the tea leaves swirl while the hot water is being poured. The even thickness of the walls of the pot keep the tea piping hot. The spout is practically drip-free and the sturdy handle makes it easy to pour.
You will enjoy the simple lines of this pot, the beautiful Rockingham Glaze and the perfect cup of tea it will brew.
