Designed during the era of loose tea, the bulbous, round shape referred to as "Betty", infuses the perfect beverage by allowing the tea leaves to swirl the leaves when you poured water into the pot, releasing the flavor. The glaze is “Manganese Brown”, which was developed by the Marquis of Rockingham.
The shape and the name were eventually shortened to the affectionate term ‘Brown Betty’. The design of its spout, carefully-crafted to eliminate any drips, remains part of its iconic style today.
