Unique Design Tea Pots Fit for a Man

unique tea pots fit for a man :: potter for stelton :: sorapot by joey roth

Most tea services are quite feminine. Since my husband is a huge tea drinker, I went on a search for the ultimate tea pot for a man. I found two.

Potter tea pot designed by Jehs & Laub for Stelton

The first thing that caught my eyes is the color choice of the Potter tea pot: soft black and soft midnight blue. Then, they got me with the non-drip spout. A tea pot that will not stain my table every time I use it is a must when I buy a tea pot.

Potter is the latest creation for Stelton by the duo Jehs & Laub. They won a reddot design award in 2009 for Potter. The handle shape and position delivers more balance. It makes the tea pot extraordinarily easy and comfortable to pour from. A special tea strainer is included. I found no picture of the stainer.

Sorapot designed by Joey Roth

If you are looking for a piece with architectural appeal, go with Sorapot. Made from stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone, the ritual of tea undertakes a modern transformation due to the unique feature of Sorapot. Unlike standard teapots that confine tea leaves in a small mesh basket, the tea leaves run freely over the entire Sorapot’s interior. In theory, your tea will taste better. One thing for sure, Sorapot’s design will start a conversation.

SOURCING:
+ Potter tea pot designed by Jehs & Laub for Stelton $147 USD at Unica
