To Sarah on 26 Jan 2022: For future reference in case you decide to give this another go! The cover has a little lip on the inside, which you can orientate upwards (i.e. away from spout) to prevent the cover from falling off! Hope you get to enjoy this nice teapot / tea again :)
It's a beautiful teapot and the blooming tea is a treat to watch. It makes a great gift - which is what I bought it for this time after receiving one from someone else earlier on. I do want to feedback that the design of the cover is not very good, falls off easily if you tilt the pot too much, like if you're pouring out the last bit of tea. And then it shatters and your pot is left with no cover. Wish that could be fixed or that they sold covers separately because my husband and a guest have each broken 1 cover (total 2 covers... Yes we had 2 of these pots) the exact same way: tilting the pot to pour the tea and the cover fell off and shattered :(
Otherwise, it's makes a beautiful gift.
My best friend was able to use it on a daily basis for herself and her family. I’m amazed by the effort placed in packing too.
Thank you so much Mel!
Bought the tea set as gift and the receiver loves it very much. Enjoying the tea in the teapot.
Thank you Liza! Glad to hear the recipient loves it :)
Loving it.. till I even bought it for my staycation 🤗
