Handy and cute little tea pot that I use often! The size is a bit smaller than I was expecting, but it makes enough tea for a very large mug, so it is a decent size.
So far, this little pot has been working well with all of my loose leaf teas. The quality for the price is hard to beat!
I use this every day for having herbal tea. It's convenient with heat resistant glass , very light, and just right size for me. One problem is that the lid is quite hard to take off, so I use my silicone lid instead of the original one. As I mainly use tea bags, simple lid is enough for me.
Such a beautiful way to brew whole flower tea. It’s a great size for tea for 2. My only complaint is that the lid is super hot if you decide you want to take it off while full. Not a common occurrence, and I don’t think I would appreciate the look of anything that might protect the handle. Overall, I would buy it again.
Great product ! I bought it for my lose spearmint tea. It’s perfect. I used to use a sauce Pan to boil the water and pour it over a filter but it was a mess. I’m really happy about my purchase.
Give me thumbs up if this review was helpful
I discovered this at a tea shop when they served my tea in it... I bought one but wasn't sure if I would like it as much at home, but I did.
I gave one as a gift to a friend and wasn't sure if she would use it... and a couple years later when she had offered no feedback out of the blue she said "I use it every single day!"
I have the taller Rishi but our old microwave convection oven died and the Rishi was too tall, so I got this shorter Rishi tea pot. I had the larger one so I could make a cup of hot tea, or enough tea to make half a gallon of unsweetened iced tea for the fridge. I now prefer the smaller Rishi, for either purpose. I can make a good cup of hot tea, or I can brew a cup of hot tea and pour it into a quart Mason jar with half a squeezed lemon and add ice to make a quart of unsweetened iced tea with lemon, because fresh tea is much better than tea that's been in the fridge for a day. I now always drink freshly brewed tea.
I used a stainless metric socket head cap screw to replace the lid with a stem so I can press the strainer down into the cup and drink directly from the Rishi, using it like a French press with loose tea. Lately, I traded the Yorkshire Gold loose tea for their sachets and I don't even need the strainer. I could use a plain teacup, but I like the borosilicate glass Rishi cup.
The 13.5 ounce capacity allows me to make a 12 ounce cup of tea, which is ideal for me.
The taller Rishi of the same diameter was more difficult to wash.
LOVE IT!!! Not gonna lie, I use it for coffee *ashamed face* but it works great for it too! I was afraid that the coffee would slip through the filter and it doesn’t! It’s the perfect size for one cup, I love this!
Please bring back this excellent product. I like it so much that I take it with me while travelling. My other family members want this individual teapot for themselves too and I want to send them such a gift.
