I like the craftmanship of this teapot, the style, design, and color are all excellent. I love the whimsical little frog on the cover and the fact that the lid has some "tabs" to keep it in place when you pour. However, the first time I used it, it was difficult to pour the tea out; it slopped everywhere from out of the spout. Maybe I filled it too full?
