It is believed that silver provides the best possible medium for water and tea to meet. This is .999 silver, which is the highest grade purity possible.

The handle is a type of ebony hardwood that is cool to the touch and very durable! There can be a slight gap between where the handle meets the body of the teapot to prevent dry rot. This is intentional!
This is a hand-made item, there will be some cosmetic inconsistencies with this teapot, especially where the copper cladding interfaces with the silver and around the ornate "carvings" at the top of the teapot body.

* Please don't expect a perfect lid fit. This is not a clay teapot, so it may leak slightly from the lid at the beginning of the pour. We won't accept returns for that reason.
** While the teapot itself is pure silver, it is coated with copper, so it cannot be considered pure silver. As such, no certificate is available. If you must have a certificate, please do not order this teapot.
