Teapots are made using
advanced quality and safety control measures, but the production methods
are the same as the traditional techniques used in the 18th century. Up to
4 days and 129 tasks are required to make one teapot. Each piece is
individually handcrafted, ensuring that no two pieces are ever identical.
Each teapot is hand numbered and beautifully gift boxed.
