MyWorld: Beautiful Teapots


These are tea/coffee pots – the one on the left is the traditionally shaped Arabian coffee pot with the large oversized pouring spout that is usually made of some kind of metal, maybe brass or some alloy. I had never seen any quite like these before though, with the beautiful colors applied.

  1. Very fancy and glitzy! Over the top! Fun to catch up on your blog photos today – I’ve been busy!

    I love the teapots!!! Do you remember where you saw them Susie?

    • Hi Habeeba! How are you? If I remember correctly, they were in one of the shops off the lobby at the Sheraton on the Corniche. They have really beautiful things in those shops, but I’m sure they are quite pricey as well.

    Good job Susie, its beautiful indeed! I’d definitely buy something like this but I’d put it in a display case instead of using it to preserve its beauty 🙂

    Lovely teapots, and lovely pic. Thanks!

  10. Oh those are wonderful, I used to see similar in Turkey and was always so tempted.

    I wouldn’t have expected so much colour in their teapots (don’t know why, just thought they’d be intricately marked silver pots). I would likely break that oversized spout before the pot was empty!

  12. How beautiful and colorful! The over sized pouring spout is really interesting — different. I love them, Susie, and you got such a great photo! Hope your week is off to a good start!

    I am a coffee drinker, I love it. Some day I want to try different kinds of coffee. Have you tried Arabian coffee? How was it?

    • I too am a coffee drinker. What the Arabs call coffee is not really coffee to me. The Arabic coffee (called gahwa) is mostly made of cardomom and actually has very little real coffee in it. It is served in tiny cups, not sweetened, and requires an acquired taste (not my cup of tea!). My kind of coffee is actually called Nescafe here and is almost certainly made from regular instant coffee. Most people prefer drinking it with cream and sugar. The Turkish coffee is also served here, is strong and often sweetened, and is distinctive in its method of preparation which causes coffee dregs to be left at the bottom. It too is served in a tiny cup.
