Brew Tea for One: Ceramic Half Teapot

Tea For One - Ceramic Half Teapot

 

 

Stale bread. Cold tea. You can still eat ‘em and drink ‘em, but you’ll do so minus the pleasure you’d normally have if the bread was warm and the tea was hot. There’s not much you can do about the bread, but there is something you can do about the tea: brew a batch that’s meant for one. And the teapot that was made just for this purpose is this Tea for One ceramic teapot by Droog.

Part of a collection, the Dutch teapot echoes classic Chinese design and was made in Shenzhen, China, where many items are copied for the mass market. Highlighting what gets changed in a “copy,” the collection strives to bring attention to the creative decisions that go into making all copycats and to show that unoriginality can be inspiring, too.

It basically looks like a teapot that was cut in half, which is probably something you wanted to do with your regular pot when you wanted to make some tea for your lonesome. The Tea for One teapot retails for $75.
