While I've enjoyed many Adagio teas over the years, I had never tried any of their teawares, and when recently offered the opportunity to choose some things for review, I selected this pretty pink teapot and infuser! The only other teapot I've tried with a built-in infuser was a glass teapot I picked up at an antique mall, and I didn't really like the way it worked. I was eager to see how this one would fare.
They call this 24-ounce, 5-1/2-inch-diameter model their "personalitea teapot," and I think it's a great description. This teapot reminds me of old-fashioned Fiestaware, and for some reason I am drawn to teapots where the lids sit down in the opening like this. (I don't see very many in this style, but I do like them.)
I was also pleased to note that the infuser is a very fine mesh infuser. The tea I sampled (which I'll review later in the week) was a fruity blend with lots of bits and pieces of things floating around in there. So how did the infuser teapot work?
As you can see here, only a few tiny particles remain in my teacup, so the mesh infuser performed quite well. I'm most happy to be able to recommend this particular teapot, especially since the $14 price makes it quite an affordable one.
