I recently began drinking tea, and after just a short time, I find myself excited to walk into the kitchen every morning and make a cup. The only thing missing from this routine is a teapot. While having one certainly isn't necessary, I would like to add a teapot into the mix eventually. Plus, I think they're utterly charming, especially those with added character like the ones below. — Annemarie from Brunch at Saks

This two-handled teapot by Wade Ceramics is somewhat puzzling, but it claims that the additional handle ensures ease of grip and steadying while pouring — so there must be something to it. I think its cheery yellow color and unique design are amusing nonetheless.
