My mom has always been a tea aficionado ever since I can remember. She owns all sorts of assorted tea leaves, and tea bags. She probably has a better selection of tea than an English Tea Parlor! At anytime, you can go through her stash and find at least 50 different brands and flavors of tea. That being said, she also owns a lot of lovely teacups and teapots, too. Her favorite teapot is called a ‘Brown Betty Teapot.’
Guess what she loves to receive as gifts? Her love for tea certainly makes my shopping a lot easier. For the tea lover in your life, I would definitely be able to recommend purchasing them a nice, handcrafted teapot.
Brown Betty Teapots come in different sizes, when purchasing one, take into consideration the lifestyle of the person you are buying for. Do they live alone, entertain a lot? Someone who lives alone probably doesn't need an 8 cup Brown Betty teapot.
Fun Gift Idea Using a Brown Betty Teapot
Instead of just buying a Brown Betty teapot for a gift, fill your gift with an assortment of teas and if space allows, tea crackers and cookies. This is a very impressive presentation for a much more affordable price than a traditional, unpersonalized gift basket.
Authentic Brown Betty Teapots
There are lots of imitations, although I'm not sure why as traditional Brown Betty Teapots aren't terribly expensive to begin with! To ensure quality, make sure to purchase an authentic one that uses time tested techniques originating back from the 1700's.
8 Cup Brown Betty Teapot
This is the largest Brown Betty teapot available. With 8 cups, you can easily entertain 8 guests all at once with a flavorful cup of tea.
The teapot is made out of red English clay and is made to the traditional specifications of Brown Betty teapots since the 1700's!
