Mono’s range of teapots and accessories are the perfect companions to our high-quality loose-leaf tea. So why not treat yourself, and enjoy the best of everything?

Anyone who enjoys a quality cup of tea will know that the ritual of making it is just as important as the drink itself. You’ll relish the patient discipline of measuring tea, boiling water and steeping leaves, all of which lead tantalisingly to the moment when the steaming nectar is poured into your cup.

In order to wring the maximum pleasure from this process, it pays to choose the best possible tea-making accessories. That’s why we stock the full range of Mono teapots, warmers and tea cups – because they really are the very best tea-related products we could find.

Handmade in Germany, Mono’s range uses traditional materials along with contemporary designs to blend the old and the new. If that sounds too much like a piece of marketing talk, check out the Classic Mono Teapot and see for yourself.

This unique product was designed by Tassilo von Grolman in 1983, and combines hand-finished stainless steel with heat-resistant glass to pleasingly good effect. Not only that, but the teapot ensures your loose-leaf tea releases its full flavour, thereby creating the most delicious cup of tea.

That was very much von Grolman’s intention when he designed the product. He realised that tea tasted at its very best if the tealeaves had plenty of space to unfurl. As a result, he made the filter almost as large as the teapot itself. In the process, he created a design classic that looks as fresh now as it did 25 years ago.

Not that von Grolman’s excellence was focused on just one product, of course. He also designed the Mono Filio Teapot, which offers a fresh take on his classic design.

Available in 0.6-litre or 1.5-litre sizes, the Mono Filio Teapot offers the same large filter as the Classic, but features a different-shaped bowl and handle design. It’s every bit as functional, and is a thing of beauty even when it’s not in use.

The same could be said of the Mono Eclipse Teapot. This was also designed by von Grolman, and features Mono’s trademark large filter, along with an elegant stainless-steel handle that makes pouring a breeze. It can hold up to 1.3 litres of tea, making it the perfect choice when you have guests.

Naturally, with such eye-catching teapots in your collection, you’ll want accessories to match. We stock a variety of related products, including the Mono Classic Teapot Warmer and Mono Filio Teapot Warmer, along with Mono Filio Teacups and the classy Mono Filio Sugar and Cream Set.

With so many designs to choose from, you’ll find your tea-making pleasure greatly enhanced by ownership of a Mono teapot or accessory. What’s more, because the products are so well made, with designs that endure, they’ll very much stand the test of time.
