This is a really nice little teapot. It is perfect for a single serving of tea. It appears well-made, arriving rust-free (a problem I have had in the past with cast-iron teapots, although not from enjoyingtea.com), with no chipping and a well-glazed interior. The teapot is easy to clean with hot water, and dries quickly, leading me to believe that it will not rust easily. It keeps tea warm for around 30 mins, which is fine with just one serving of tea.
