British people believe the Brown Betty makes the best pot of tea because of the type of clay that is used and the shape of the signature brown pot. During the reign of Queen Victoria, drinking tea evolved from an exclusive treat for the aristocracy to a commoner's favorite. Today, it's the favorite hot beverage of the United Kingdom.
Because Genuine Brown Betty teapots are handmade, they are not intended for use in a microwave or on a stovetop. When making tea, we recommend the use of an electric tea kettle to bring the water to a full boil before brewing teabags or loose-leaf tea in your teapot. Read our popular tea blogs to learn more.
