Traditional Terracotta Red Clay Brown Betty Teapot with a Rockingham glaze.
The original Brown Betty teapot dates back to the 1700s. The teapots started off as small, unglazed, and made with special red terracotta clay. In 1695, the Elder Brothers discovered the special red clay in the area of Bradell Woods, near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England.
The British believe that the Brown Betty teapot makes the best pot of tea in the world. For one, the red clay used has better heat retention. Secondly, the shape of the teapot allows the tea leaves to swirl around inside the teapot whenever hot water is gently added.
