I Finally Found the Perfect Tea Pot

I Finally Found the Perfect Tea Pot

For at least a year, I've been on a quest for the perfect tea pot. My efforts, until recently, left me feeling like a medieval knight searching for a mystical grail. And then I had my Goldilocks moment. I finally found the perfect tea pot.

Before I reveal my find, however, let's back up a minute and take a look at what makes for a perfect tea pot. When I started my search, the truth is, I didn't know — at least not exactly.

3 Requirements of a Perfect Tea Pot

I knew I wanted something big enough to serve two or more people. This is mostly because, when I drink tea, I drink a lot of it, but also because it's nice to be able to make tea for company.

I also knew I wanted a built-in strainer. Let me ask you: What is the point of a tea pot that doesn't have a filter? The whole point (for me at least) is that I wouldn't have to think about tea bags or tea balls.

Finally, I was looking for something that wouldn't be a complete eyesore. I recently took my cabinet doors off and my open shelving means everything I own is on display.

I found all of these things and more in one simple, sleek, and sophisticated tea pot. What is it, you ask? It's the Raven Stovetop Tea Kettle from Fellow.

Not just a tea pot, it's also a stovetop-friendly tea kettle! And it has a built-in thermometer. It's actually so much more than I was even looking for.

Here's how it works: Put the kettle/pot on your stovetop. Heat it to the desired temperature (herbal teas are best at higher temps; greens do better a bit lower than boiling), add your tea to strainer and let steep. After a few minutes, remove the strainer and presto! You have the perfect pot of tea.

Now all you need is the perfect tea cup ...
