Large Teapot by Firebelly Review

The "Large Teapot" by Firebelly Tea features one of the coolest and most modern teapot designs we have seen.

Not only does it look gorgeous, but it is highly functional. It's made of high-quality materials, it's dishwasher safe, and it includes an excellent tea infuser. It is on the higher end in terms of cost though.

Firebelly Tea Large Teapot Overview

  • Stylish stoneware teapot with a futuristic design that could be a centerpiece in your home.

  • This teapot is made of high-quality materials. The teapot itself and lid are made of ceramic, the handle is made of metal and the infuser is made of stainless steel.

  • The micro-perforated stainless steel infuser is large, and wide and sits near the bottom of the teapot. This allows for water to flow through the loose leaf tea, even if you use smaller quantities of water.

  • Excellent thermal design: ceramic is the best insulator for teapots, and the lid has a silicone seal to prevent any heat from escaping.

  • Dishwasher safe.

  • Non-stovetop safe.

  • This teapot is on the expensive side of things, but we still consider it a good value due to its presentation, stainless steel filter, ease of cleaning, and quality materials with the potential to last many years.

Design and Build Quality

The Large Teapot by Firebelly Tea looks like it belongs in a modern art museum.

The futuristic and minimalistic design features a large metal handle that hangs over the lid. This makes for a unique style that we haven't seen anywhere else and makes this teapot stand out against the competition.

At the time of writing, this teapot is available in all-white or black-and-white colors. This particular design comes in one size only. It can hold up to 40 oz (1.2 L) of tea, which is enough for 4 large mugs or 8 to 10 small cups.

By the way, if you are looking for a smaller teapot, check Firebelly’s small teapot which features another very cool design inspired by Japanese Kyusu teapots.

The teapot and lid are made of high-quality ceramic. They feel smooth and sturdy to the touch, while the teapot’s walls are thick, which makes the teapot a bit heavy.

This is not a problem at all though, the handle, which is made of metal and bolted to the teapot, does not get hot and makes it easy to grab the teapot and tilt it to serve tea.

Not only does this teapot look awesome, but it does the job of a teapot, really well.

For example, it comes with a large and wide micro-perforated stainless steel infuser. It’s really well designed because the tea infuser is wide and sits close to the bottom of the teapot. This means that you can prepare small quantities of tea as even a small amount of water will be enough to submerge most loose leaf teas.

As we mentioned before, this teapot retains heat well. This is thanks to the low thermal conductivity and high heat capacity of ceramics. The lid, which is also made of ceramic and comes with a silicone seal, fits snuggly, which further reduces heat loss.

Another neat feature is the drip-proof spout, which prevents tea droplets from spilling all over your counter.

The only con of this teapot is that it cannot be used on heating elements. This is something very minor though as long as you have a proper tea kettle!

In fact, we usually recommend against using teapots on heating elements, despite manufacturers stating they are stovetop safe. Using teapots directly on heating elements reduces their lifespan.

Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance

Imagine placing art from the Guggenheim Museum in the dishwasher. It will be ruined and you will be on the hook for a few thousand dollars and may even get arrested.

Well, thankfully, this stoneware teapot, despite looking like a museum piece, is dishwasher-safe!

And if you don’t have a dishwasher, it’s still very easy to wash and rinse. Since I consume copious amounts of green tea, I opt for a manual rinse since I can’t wait for the dishwasher to finish to have my next cup of tea!

 All in all, this teapot is very easy to clean and maintain!

Value for Money

This Firebelly Tea teapot is definitely pricey, but do not let that deter you.

While not in use, the aesthetically pleasing design of this teapot will complement your kitchen or dining room.

So if aesthetics and functionality are both important to you, then you might find the price very reasonable!

Further, the use of high-quality materials means this teapot should last many years (unless you drop it, then that’s on you!).

Finally, the excellent tea strainer ensures hot water evenly flows through the tea leaves, even when you are using smaller quantities of water to make just one serving. And when you’re done, all you have to do is place it in your dishwasher.

If you are someone who loves drinking tea, this sleek teapot ticks all the boxes. Your local tea shop might even turn green with envy if you decide to bust it out (not that we recommend carrying this teapot around).

Brewing some delicious tea with this teapot is a delightful way to start your day.
