Charming teapots and cafetières for a more cheerful drink

Eight wise buys, as featured in our March 2023 issue

It's clear all the way in the world of teapots and cafetières, where the drink itself is the star of the show. Below, Rémy Mishon has hand selected eight charming glass teapots and cafetières for £85 and under. 


The latest cafetières and French presses are all about style (though substance remains as important). Hay's French Press is a charming clash of cool blues and rich reds and would certainly brighten up any breakfast table. Pair it with equally punchy crockery and a cheerful mug or two. Yet it's not just highbrow design companies raising the style stakes, with beloved high street merchant Oliver Bonas contributing their own smart option.

Over in the other camp, all the best teapots are letting us know it's what's on the inside that counts. High street stalwarts like The Conran Shop and John Lewis have opted for more contemporary shapes and colourful accents, meanwhile gifting destination Fortnum and Mason has gone more traditional.
