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.
