As I wrote earlier in the bedding set review http://all-coupons.biz/review/136/ the customer service manager offered to send any product of the same price as the compensation for the wrong size. I ordered a few things, one of which is the portable tea cup. The order was made on January 23, sent on January 24, and on February 5 it was already delivered by the courier. The shop and its delivery service pleasantly surprised me by their speed.
I was worried about the delivery of the such fragile good. The main part of the bulb is made of glass, and I was afraid that the teapot may break during transfer. But thanks to the good packaging everything came in one piece. The box with the teapot was additionally packed outside in several layers of bubble wrap. Therefore, even the box came fully intact.
It’s a presentation box with high-quality printing. Teapots have been manufactured by SEKO since 2008. The main direction of the company is kitchen utensils: pots, pans, crockery and so on. http://www.seko-china.com/
Apparently, the company is trying to monitor the quality, so the packaging is made at a high level.
In the box there is a description of the model, its appearance, and a small user manual.
There is also a sticker seal with the number of the packer applied by hand.
Here is the tea pot itself inside the box in an additional branded bubble wrap.
Thanks to such a careful package everything came safe and sound.
Now let`s look at the SEKO 811 teapot itself. It holds 500ml, and in its maximum dimensions are 17cm x 17cm x 10cm.
It consists of several parts:
The brewing container is made of stainless steel, supplied of a handle to get it out of the teapot easily. The container is fully perforated, which makes it easier to brew tea and not be afraid that the cracks will be clogged and the water will not pass. I also liked that the container is deep and has a wide neck, so it is convenient to lay brewing. On the one side the logo of the SEKO company is engraved.
The handle and the lid are made of plastic. On the lid, there is a ledge which makes it easy to access the lid. The handle is attached to the teapot with a metal rim. The rim is also a measure of the maximum water level in the pot, otherwise it’s about to pour through the spout.
I also want to draw your attention to the fact that there is a technological small recess-gap between the lid and the teapot through which the excess pressure goes in the process of heating the remaining air from the hot water inside the pot. This is done so that the heated air does not push water through the spout and not spill the brewing on the table.
In addition, the bulb included a list of produced models of branded teapots.
The pot was bought for brewing herbal teas, so the presence of a deep container with a wide neck is definitely a plus, since sometimes there might be quite large branches.
I put some "brewing", pour some amount of boiling water and let it brew for 5-10 minutes. Interestingly, the instructions to the teapot advisse to take out the tea container with the brew after it is done. As for me, that's too much.
So, the tea is brewed, you can drink it.
As a result, I was satisfied with this teapot. It’s easy to put in brewing, to clean it and wash after this. When tilted for pouring tea, the lid stays in place, as it’s fixed on the handle. When infusing the brew, the tea does’nt flow through the nose even when it’s fully filled, as there are holes under the lid to remove excess pressure. And the unusual layout of the spout design gives a certain charm to the process of tea-drinking.
