A considerable amount of time has been spent researching the Brown Betty teapot. We have found the original recipe as used by the Elder Brothers in 1695, for Red Terracotta Clay and Rockingham Brown Glaze and sourced the raw materials from the UK, which we use in the manufacturing of our products today.
In depth trials have been carried out to establish the correct firing temperatures of the different stages of manufacturing. Our teapot shape was designed from an original Brown Betty found in a garden shed in the UK, dating back to World War 2.
Succeeding generations of Englishmen have proved that Brown Betty teapots make the best pot of tea in the world! The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to be gently swirled around as the boiling water is added, thus producing an exquisite infusion.
The Red Terracotta Clay with its Rockingham Glaze, coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea. These teapots also keep the water hotter for longer.
