Brown Betty Teapots are said to make the best pot of tea in the world. The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to gently swirl around as the boiling water is added, producing an exquisite infusion. The red clay, with its brown Rockingham glaze, coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea.
This little teapot has quite a history! Its origins date back to the end of the 17th Century and the birth of the British Ceramic Teapot.
The original unglazed teapot was handmade out of red clay from the Bradell Woods area in Stoke-on-Trent. Today, the Brown Betty teapot is still handmade in Stoke-on-Trent with the same clay from the original area.
British people believe the Brown Betty makes the best pot of tea because of the type of clay that is used and the shape of the pot. Brown Betty teapots are still lovingly hand-made in Staffordshire England.
