This handmade engraved round teapot is a priceless piece of art meant to last for generations. It is made of heavy gauge 1mm thick solid copper with a food-safe lining of tin on the inside for durability and ease of cleaning. The black ergonomic handle is made of walnut wood and features a diamond-shaped mother of pearl inlay surrounded by a gold lining. Artisans tap chisels into the copper to form the beautiful arabesque pattern. The two teapots are stacked upon one another for the traditional Turkish Tea. This method of brewing the tea can be referred to as the “double boiler” method and is Tea is traditionally made in Turkey. Water is filled in the bottom (larger) tea kettle and loose tea leaves are placed in the top tea kettle while they are stacked on top of one another. The water boils in the bottom tea kettle as it sits on a low flame. Some of the boiling water is then poured into the top kettle where the tea leaves are and can rest for up to 10 minutes. The tea in the top kettle is quite strong, so when serving, people usually add some more hot water from the bottom kettle into their glass as well. This can be modified according to personal taste. The Turkish double boiler teapots are a perfect tool to make a tea that is just right and perfect the art of crafting the perfect cup.
