This “double-layer insulated teapot” employs an inner pot nested within an outer pot. As the nipple at its lip is pushed, the inner pot pivots and the size of its opening changes; the larger the opening, the slower the pour. The outer lid need not be replaced when brewing; the inner pot closes to form a tight seal. The outer pot’s rounded handle and 45-degree spout create a pleasing ergonomic design. The inner pot retains heat; the outer pot remains safely cool. The pot is made of ceramic or non-toxic PE material and can brew either hot or cold tea.
