    Yes I do. I've gotten it into my head that I need one. So, what one to get? I can't decide if a ceramic or stainless steel teapot would be better. Or if I would need a tea cosey and a teapot stand too.
    So come on all you teapot owners, what should I get? :biggrin:

    Using leaf tea ('natch) I find a cafetiere is my teapot of choice. Great for brewing leaf tea. Brew - plunge - no need for strainer, no 'stewing' of tea.

    Mind you, I wouldn't object if someone bought me a proper silver teapot.

    Ceramic gets my vote. With a cosy.

    Wow, that's a lot of tea pots to choose from! Do you think Arch would knit me a guinea pig tea pot cosy ;).

    What keeps the tea warmer, do both ceramic & stainless steel do the job equally well?
    I'm veering towards the stainless steel type in case I drop it, the ceramic type wouldn't fare too well against the kitchen tiles I'd not have thought :biggrin:

    Ceramic keeps it warmer me thinks.
    You could always add 30 years to your life and get a cosy.

    Of all the teapots I've had the pleasure of drinking tea from over the many, many years of my long, rapidly approaching old age & decrepitude life... the absolute best tea has been from a proper silver teapot. But silver teapots tend to be darned expensive to buy. After that, it's been the cafetiere approach that's produced the best tea IMO.

    So that's when you have that sieve thing and use leafs instead of bags?

    PFFF tea bags.
    My grandparents went to India many moons ago and visited a tea factory.
    The stuff that goes in the bags is the sweepings. :biggrin:
