The round shape, referred to as ‘Betty’, infuses the perfect brew by allowing tea leaves to swirl freely around the pot, releasing the flavours.
The glaze is “Manganese Brown” which was developed by the Marquis of Rockingham. The shape and the name were eventually shortened to the affectionate term ‘Brown Betty’. This teapot has become an English classic and is very much used as an everyday item n modern day living.
Price & Kensington teapots have continue to evolve since the Brown Betty days by developing a range of fashion-led colour palettes for modern day living. Ranging from soft neutral hues to vivid, bright tones whilst maintaining the historical shape and functionality of the ‘Betty’ teapot with a non-drip spout.
The two cup and six cup sizes can now be used with and without a fine mesh stainless steel filter which allows even the finest loose leaf tea to infuse perfectly.
