Teapots are a palette for artistic expression. General thought is that English teapots are adorned with flowers and frills. But here is an example of an English teapot that is about as far away from flowers as you can get! For those who enjoy English history, this teapot is not only handsome, but creates a great conversation starter and a foray into the famous Battle of Waterloo 1815. Tari gave me this creative gift, and although I have not yet made tea in this pot, I have really enjoyed learning about the Battle of Waterloo. If you are interested, you can read about it here. Next on the agenda is to determine exactly what type of tea would best be served in a Waterloo teapot!
