I received this lovely teapot from the Koons this past Saturday for helping with the wedding flowers. I don't think I can praise its attributes enough. JK and I drink mainly Assam Indian tea -- loose leaf of course. We are accustom to just placing the leaves in the pot and then straining the steaming tea as we pour it into our cups. This little pot has a built in strainer! It is total bliss. Also, the handle does not get too hot to hold when the teapot is placed under a tea cozy! Another blissful factor!
My knitting is always accompanied by pots of tea so this was my tea tray this afternoon when I sat down to have a bit of a knit!
Thank you Koons! You are so thoughtful!
