Location: E'ville, IL
my teapot with matching cups don't match
Date:March 5, 2008
Cons: Hard To Clean, Don't use with loose tea
"I was expecting a rich "reddish/purple/brown" color and in reality the pot is just dark brown. And even though I am not a matchy/matchy type of person, the fact that the cups (dark gray) do not match the pot bugs me."
