Le Teapot is a stylish and useful option for brewing cold or hot loose leaf tea. Compared with the Smar Tea Teapot (at $137) it's a nice option on the cheap. The pot is made from glass and sits in a plastic heat-resistant holder. The plastic holder also fuses into the handle for easy pouring and transportation. The lid comes off for each water pouring and tea leaf placement. It holds up to 48 ounces and 6 inches in diameter. Dishwasher safe.
