Pastel teapots are some of the prettiest teapots there are and the one I am sharing today is a new one in my collection. I found it in our local Habitat ReStore and fell in love with it. It was displayed on a shelf with 2 other identical teapots in different colors and it was a tough choice but the yellow won out.
This one is a McCormick teapot complete with a built in ceramic strainer to make brewing easy. I love how the brewing basket sticks out to add a bit of white to the overall look.
“There were ceramic teapots in aubergine, mustard, and midnight blue (good for one, sweeter still when shared between two drinkers); and forty small, thin glasses with curved handles, set in gold- and silver-plated holders etched with arabesque swirls. Bahar gingerly lined the tea glasses up on the counter where the cappuccino machine had been stationed. She tucked the teapots into the counter’s glass-paneled belly, where they sat prettily next to twenty glass containers of loose-leaf teas, ranging from bergamot and hibiscus to oolong.”
