The Re-engineered Brown Betty
A Historic 4-Cup Teapot
We can trace the first Brown Betty teapots all the way back to the 1700s; by 1926 the Staffordshire pottery industry were making approximately half a million Brown Betty per week. Cauldon Ceramics is the last remaining manufacturer of the original Brown Betty teapot. Together with ceramicist Ian McIntyre, we are pleased to present this newly re-engineered edition of what has become an iconic - and quintessentially British - object. Still handmade in the UK with the Etruria Marl clay and Rockingham glaze that give the teapot its famous colour, the re-engineered Brown Betty boasts modern features that make it the ideal teapot for the ritual that is tea time, no matter where in the world you make your cuppa.
Get a loose leaf infuser basket for maximum brewing flexibility. The removable basket fits seamlessly inside the teapot, allowing you to pour the perfect cuppa without a strainer.
Not a loose leaf drinker? Not to worry; no judgement here. Order your Brown Betty without the infuser basket and use your tea bags in peace.
