Love the teapot but the infuser split after only 3 uses, allowing the tea to escape. I requested a replacement infuser from Whittard twice but have been ignored on both occasions.
Best birthday present
5th October 2014 Posted by
I was bought this teapot for my birthday and it is simply the best! It holds enough to make two mugs of tea and the glass design is beautiful! The spout is well designed as not to cause dripping that some teapots I've used have had problems with.
Just be aware there is a lip in the lid and if you're a clean freak like me you'll spend a good while trying to dry it after washing up to prevent water stains.

I've had one of these for two years and it works and pours perfectly. Having dropped the lid onto a tiled floor, I'm now ordering another. It is small, but plenty big enough for two cups of tea if I'm making just for me.
Formosa Glass Teapot with Bamboo Handle
24th July 2014 Posted by
I had one of these tea pots with a bamboo handle for several years and very satisfied with it - it looked good and made a very nice cup of Earl Grey. However, Whittard no longer appear to sell this pot with a bamboo handle despite still being advertised as such; instead it now has a rather naff looking plastic handle.

Hugely disappointing and not worth the price.
Very small. This just barely holds the advertised 600ml, you'd need to fill it right up to the opening, which fills the spout. Bought with the glass pot warmer and it's dwarfed by the stand.
The shops appear to have considerably larger ones that they use for samples, and place on the shelf with these. Appears deliberate confusion.
It's a nice shape and pours neatly but the handle is poorly wound and on my one all marred so about to be returned.
You're far better off saving money and buying the 'mug with infuser' which holds a generous 300ml and has a larger infuser.

This cracked while filling with water. I am hoping the replacement is better. I loved it and hope the next one stays in one piece.
Perfect unusual gift

I bought this for my daughter as a present. She loves tea and this little teapot with a bit of oriental style was perfect for her. She loves it.

This is such a lovely design and I love that you can see the tea inside. Its too pretty to put away in a cupboard
Bamboo Glass Teapot

Love this teapot! Looks stylish and is easy to clean. It seems very delicate but has not cracked with hot water. Takes one or two cups depending on cup size. £20 is expensive for what it is and also you have to put the water in first for some tealeaves as the the leaves block the filter, which is why I only give it 4 stars and not 5.

This teapot is tiny, only enough for one cup. I was expectng something a lot bigger, pity.
