About

The basic formula of bone ash, china stone and china clay still remains the recipe for high quality bone china many centuries later. Since 1750, Royal Crown Derby has elevated the process even further by using 50% bone ash.
This alteration to the pattern of ingredients resulted in Royal Crown Derby's unique 'whiter than white' translucency and superior strength. With the fortitude of fine bone china, this teapot easily withstands the wear and tear that puts hard paste porcelain and earthenware teaware into the dustbin.

WE PURSUED THE BASIC WHITE T-POT PROJECT WITH A SIMPLE GOAL:
DESIGN A TIMELESS ESSENTIAL THAT WOULD MAKE THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA.
Inspired by the luxury basic white t-shirt, "The Basic White T-pot" revisits the iconic shape of a tea time essential, using the highest quality materials and elegant design.

"It's good enough," people said. "They're just teapots."
Frustrated with the status quo, we ignored them.
THE BASIC WHITE T-POT IS:
A STANCE AGAINST THOSE THAT "DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE THEY USED TO" AND DEMOLISHES THE 100-YEAR-OLD PROBLEM OF OVER-STEEPED, BITTER TEA.
We were inspired by the innovators, craftsmen,
and doers around us with strong beliefs, relentless hard work,
and the undying pursuit of perfection.
PERFECTION COMES IN STEPS.
AND TO US, IT'S WORTH EVERY SHOT.

RAISED INFUSER

A LIFE LESS BITTER (IS A BETTER LIFE)

One inch makes all the difference for a perfect infusion. After your first pour of tea, the waterline will sit just below the infuser. Extraction stops, precisely. No over-steeping of the second cup. No bitter tannins. Perfection.
