Where are nice glass teapots?

by Seeker » Mar 30th, '10, 14:50

Well, in the last week and 1/2 I've managed to drop and break the lids of both my small and large glass teapots. Now they are topless. Sigh.

I can't seem to find an online vendor that carries nice glass teapots (without all the glass drop-in filter silliness, or plastic lids, etc).

Do you know of a vendor that carries a nice selection - preferably with the spiral wire nozzle filters? I'd like to replace both my small and large.

Smeagol is bummed.

Yum Tea has a fair amount of glass teapots at decent prices.

+1 they have a great selection of glass teapots...they even have one identical to my favourite glass pot which I had bought from a local store at a much higher price than DTH is offering it for...and which is sadly broken now :(

I´m thinking in ordering a replacement from DTH though :)

Wow - thank you everyone!
Some great choices.
I see some new glass teapots in my future.

I bought this about 1-1/2 months ago. ( I liked the handle)
I bought it to go with two glass cups that I had bought a month before that.
I still haven't used them! :roll: (Oh got it at Teapot Gallery)

I have that one but cannot get the handle to stay rigid when pouring, bend the clips as much as I can, it still slips sideways a bit when I tilt it over :(

I fumble fingered putting the lid through the side of a Ten Ren glass pot of about 130ml

I was able to find one slightly smaller and one slightly larger at Yunnan Sourcing.

I don´t think it´s supposed to stay rigid...I always poured with one hand on the handle and the other on the top of the lid and it was stable enough for me to pour comfortably.
