Pumpkin Teapot

Now that Fall is here and my thoughts turn to Halloween and Thanksgiving, I have pumpkins on my mind. Specifically a Pumpkin Teapot, perfect for serving tea now.

I love this one from American Tea Room:

Pumpkin Teapot

It is a cast iron teapot, or tetsubin. It holds 14 ounces and has a pumpkin stem finial on the teapot lid. Cast iron makes a wonderful teapot as it retains heat and is long lasting. They are quite common in Japan, where they originated.

Every order over $60 at American Tea Room receives free shipping. They also offer a free gift with every order.

This weekend is a great time to buy as they are also offering 20% off all orders over $75 when you use the code "Columbus20" at checkout. The offer starts today and runs through Monday October 11. That would be an awesome savings on the pumpkin teapot. Breville and Bodum items are exempt from the offer.

Also if you are in Canada, then enjoy free shipping this Thanksgiving weekend on all orders over $60. This is a $15 value. Please used coupon code "Canada" at checkout. Offer expires on Monday October 11 and also excludes Bodum and Breville items.
