Afternoon Tea Week 2022

We believe that there is always time for tea, and this week is no exception as we enter #AfternoonTeaWeek2022

Burleigh’s favourite pastime, and it has been around for as long as we’ve been drinking tea. Of course, we want your tea to look as good as it tastes. This is why we hide a little secret in every teapot - a little secret that makes a big difference. 

Lovingly placed by hand by our teapot casters, each of our Burleigh teapots has a little piece of clay in the spout, ensuring an elegant pour without any drips, this piece of clay is called a ‘Grid.’

This clever piece of clay allows the tea to pass through the spout in a much more controlled and evenly distributed way. It also stops your tea clogging up the spout and coming out through the lid and onto your table. A simple addition, adding elegance to your teatime rituals since 1851. 

You can read more about how we make Burleigh Pottery here.

Whether you choose the classic look of our Blue Asiatic Pheasants,  or something a little more contemporary like Black Regal Peacock, choose a teapot that is as good on the inside as it is on the outside and make every drop count. 

Discover your perfect teapot here and shop our accompanying teacups and saucers to curate your perfect Afternoon Tea experience at home. Each piece made using unique crafting skills that are unmatched anywhere else in the world.
