Emperor 5 Piece Clay Tea Set —  

Add to Basket


This tea set, which includes a teapot and four cups, is inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s tale, the emperor and the nightingale. A sick man, who lives in the most sumptuous and palatial surroundings, is restored to health by the simple song of a nightingale. The story is a powerful affirmation of the incomparable beauty of the natural world. Made from a black clay (very like black basalt), this set is glazed on the outside to give a cast iron look without the weight. The contrasting teapot lid and cup interiors are glazed, with a floral decoration and the nightingale himself can be found perched on the teapot lid. As with all the tea pots, Emperor’s Bird has a removable stainless steel filter for a perfect cup of loose-leaf tea every time, and easy cleaning when you’re done.

The design is beautiful. My reason that I gave it a 4-star was that the exterior of the teapot and teacups were rougher than I had expected.
