Basic White T-PotTeaware
Make tea perfect, effortlessly. The Basic White T-Pot allows you to appreciate tea in its truest expression. Just how our Master Blender intended.
In 2014, we collaborated with Royal Crown Derby, the expert in fine bone china, to solve a 100-year problem. Our mission: to co-design a teapot that effortlessly makes the perfect cup of tea.
Inspired by the luxury basic white t-shirt, "The Basic White T-pot" reimagines the design of a tea time essential, stitching together quality materials and innovative thinking. A passionate creation of Art + Beauty.
Teapot: 100% Fine Bone China, handmade in England
Infuser: Perfect 2-cup steeper, 100% Stainless Steel
Looking closely at our own practices, we identified waste reduction as an important area of improvement. We are committed to transitioning from linear packaging practices to circular practices. Learn More about sustainability at TEALEAVES.

MAKE THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
Do Not Bleach
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.

THE BASIC WHITE T-POT
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.
FINEST BONE CHINA
MADE FOR TOUCHING
Flawless, translucent and silky smooth. This teapot exemplifies good manners and sophistication. Light on the wrist and luxurious to touch. Handworked at every stage, made from the highest quality English fine bone china. So civilized.
IT’S ALL IN THE SPOUT
DETAILS BEGET DETAILS
Keep your linens pristine. The intelligent design of the spout prevents unsightly drips due to its shape, like the soft curves of a fitted white T-shirt. The cutaway spout reveals the beautiful colors of tea, before it is hemmed in by the cup below.
KEEP A LID ON IT
Like the gentle curves of fabric, the concave lid is hemmed in from all sides for an easy grasp. Gracefully pour your favourite cup of TEALEAVES while the lid autonomously stays in place.
HANDLE WITH CARE
A great handle befitting of the teapot’s modern and minimal design. Get a grasp on the connoisseurship of tea, expertly and simply made.
