2012 Update News
They say good things come to those that wait and in the case of Brown Betty Teapots it is quite true indeed.
A high quality Brown Betty is once again being made in the UK. Just when I had given up all hope of ever seeing a high quality Brown Betty made with the red clay and covered with a good Rockingham Brown Glaze again they returned better than ever. Another company in Stoke on Trent, Adderley Ceramics, has taken up the task of producing the complete range of sizes. They researched the clays and glazes to determine the proper firing temperatures to create a quality teapot. I have every confidence that they will be sending me teapots of high quality that I can stand behind.
These are teapots that I will guarantee to be free of any crazing issues ,prior Bettys may have had, for a year's time as we want you to be as happy with these new pieces as your grandmother was with her Betty.
I am extremely pleased with the first shipment of these beautiful new betties and I was delighted to hear that the shape they have was taken from a very old Brown Betty Teapot from the WW II era found in a garden shed in the UK.

Making a perfect pot of Tea with Thanks to our friends at Zhi Tea
Where to begin :
To make a perfect pot of tea, start with one of your favorite loose teas. Then add cold water to your kettle and heat to the desired temperature (see below). Fill your teapot with hot tap water to warm it. Before pouring in the hot water empty the hot tap water from the pre-warmed teapot.
Next, add approximately two teaspoons of tea leaf per 6oz cup to your infuser. Pour the water directly onto the leaves and steep the tea according to the directions below.
For Black Tea:
* bring your water to a full boil and remove from heat immediately (don't over boil).
* allow tea to steep approximately 3-5 minutes and strain.
For Green Teas:
* bring your water to a pre boil (appx. 180 degrees. 160 degrees for sencha)
* when little bubbles start to form on the bottom of the kettle, remove from heat.
* allow tea to steep 1 1/2 - 3 minutes and strain.
For Oolong Teas:
* bring your water to a pre boil.
* when little bubbles are coming to the surface (a bit hotter than you would need for green tea) remove from heat.
* allow to steep 2-4 minutes and strain.
