Our oldest son, Micah, is a traveler. He has a bit of the wanderlust in him and it makes me know that he is truly our son because he is always up for new experiences. Several years ago he took a massive trip which included a trip to Portugal. I reaped the benefits of that trip because he found me a perfect teapot. I have shared it before but felt like I should share again today since today is his 34th birthday and this is one of the favorite teapots he has given me over the years.
Isn’t it adorable? The cork is what sets it apart from any other teapot that I have. It came with a couple of little cups and when I did an online search I found out that this little gem is called The Whistler for a reason.
The Whistler is the biggest and one of the oldest cork oak trees of the world and it is located in the Portuguese region of Alentejo. This special tree now gives the name to this tea pot in which cork embraces ceramic just like it embraces the wood in the cork oak tree. The Whistler tea set is inspired by the traditional pottery of Alentejo. (from sugartrends.com)
I love the simplicity and the sturdiness of this set is what I love the most. And the fact that Micah picked it out for me, of course.
Thanks for stopping by today to see my teapot – you know I am so happy that you are here. Thanks to our sweet 34 year old for the fabulous teapot which is unique just like him.
