Brown Betty, Adderley Ceramics
Pippins is proud to have the original Brown Betty teapot in our shop.
The original Brown Betty dates back to the 1700s, by the Elder Brothers using
a special red clay found in the area of Bradell Woods, near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. This clay is attributed for the pot keeping your tea hot.
A considerable amount of time has been spent researching the “Brown Betty” teapot. Adderley Ceramics has found the ‘original recipe’ as used by the original maker the Elder Brothers, and are continuing the tradition of making authentic Brown Betty Teapots.
Succeeding generations of Englishmen have proved that “Brown Betty” teapots make the best pot of tea in the world! The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to be gently swirled around as the boiling water is added, thus producing an exquisite infusion.
