It brews enough for a breakfast with my nieces. Or when I'm binging on tea for illness or chills it will keep the tea hot till I pour the last cup.
It includes a snuggly fitting brew basket just perfect for home grown teas. No loose leaves in the cup and easier to clean than a tea ball. Sometimes these are the things keeping me from brewing a nettle or mint tea. I'm going to plant yaupon for some homegrown caffeine now. I used this pot to finally sample my loose leaf yaupon.
It loses acorns because, despite being cast iron, it's not for use on the stove. It has to be hand dried after each use to avoid rusting. I do give them credit for making the top opening large enough to accommodate this.
It's a teapot, rather than a kettle. You can pre rinse the pot in boiling water to preheat the pot before filling, but it's more a serving vessel than a cooking implement. Not as impractical as it sounds. It saves us a lot of time brewing individual cups and a lot of waste because we always use too many leaves in those little cups.
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
