Teapot Tuesday: Tonfisk Wooden Teapot


After the last Teapot Tuesday being a little bit silly, I thought I'd go right to the other end of the spectrum with something very high end. This Tonfisk Teapot is really beautiful - the mix of white ceramics and dark wood is getting me very excited indeed. I'm not always a fan of Scandinavian design, it's often a little bit to edgy and clean for me, but this ticks my tea boxes.

The wooden wrap acts as a handle, as well as insulating your cuppa. The lid is cork so it doesn't get hot, and when you want to wash it, you just take out the ceramic parts and pop them in the dishwasher. It's a really nifty piece of design (I don't know what the Finnish word for nifty is - anyone?)

It's not cheap in the slightest. That little set is £115 from The Lollipop Shoppe (the teapot on its own is around £69 and you can buy it from Caroline McGraph), but if you're looking for a super snazzy tea set then this is the one for you. Just think about the cost per use.

  1. Oh no! I love teapots but they have to be all fat and silly-looking. This is far too stylish for me. ;)

    1. I love that people have a definite idea of what a teapot needs to look like. Mugs and plates can get the swanky design treatment, but we like teapots to be teapots.

  2. Me too! I was brought up in the Potteries, and whilst I am just about over 'it has to be china', in my head tea pots are still round, and coffee pots straight! It truly is a nifty design though, and no reason (that I can see) that I couldn't use it as a coffee pot!

    1. See? It's so strange that you're fine for this to be a coffee pot, but tea must go in round things. Love this - Teapot Tuesday is going to be fun!
