I'm a little teapot, short and stout...

I bought the greatest teapot in the world on Friday.

No, wait, come back!

It's really brilliant! You can use it with tea bags or leaves, it's totally simple to clean, and it makes just the right amount of tea. Plus it's all cute and everything. It's sitting in front of me on a charming ceramic trivet, covered with a warm cosy.

Here it is. Note: I did not buy it in Amazon, I bought it in Roches, a very dull Dublin department store. I just went to Amazon to get a picture of it. Although check out the crazy tea fanatics who reviewed it! Especially the very first one. Man, you can tell he or she is not from a tea-guzzling nation. We who have been surrounded by tea since birth and view it as pratically the same as water would never be so finicky.

Ooh I like them. Actually I like most Bodum stuff, and they just opened a store at the outlet centre over the road.

I think we have the coffee version in our kitchen. Funky!

Furthermore, one simply *must* make the full 16oz or so of tea with this design, as less liquid will not reach the infuser basket because the compression chamber is at the bottom! Duh!

wow. people this fanatical should be banned from using words like "duh".

anyway, congratulations on your new teapot.

Sarkycat has one of these, and it is exceedingly cool. I still prefer my ceramic teapots though. What's that look for? Yes, I have more than one teapot - doesn't make me a freak.

What makes me a freak is that I was nodding my head as I read the first review.

Who doesn't make a full pot of tea though? I mean really, I always make a full pot. And I always drink it all. Which explains a lot about me.

Hey, I have about four teapots, that's not freakish at all!

Although tragically, our household's ultra cool gigantic china teapot's handle fell off this morning! I felt evil, as if I'd somehow cursed it by bringing in this teapotish upstart...
