What do you do when the weather’s shite, as it so often is in winter in Ireland? Right now, as Atlantic storms are battling our coasts and Tsunami early warning systems are being bandied about, burying your head in a good book and pouring out a hot drop sounds more appealing than ever.

So we’ve found ten teapots we think you’ll find more than adequate for purpose. Cheers!
