Dr. Who fans will recognize The TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), a time machine and spacecraft featured in the BBC Science Fiction Television series.

As any self respecting Whovian knows, the TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and any place in the universe… then again The Doctor is not the best driver so who knows where he and his trusty assistant will land?

In an effort to create the perfect cup of tea, this 34 oz. teapot is fashioned from clear glass so you can watch the tea steeping.  Once it reaches the desired strength, press the plunger of its infuser to instantly halt the brewing process, preventing the tea from tasting bitter. The hand-blown borosilicate glass, which was developed for laboratory use, combines extreme heat resistance with high clarity and durability. The handle provides a cool, comfortable hold, and the spout pours neatly. The lid is stainless steel.

Bodum Glass teapot

The stainless-steel infuser provides plenty of space for the tea leaves to release their full flavor. It can also be used for holding (and easily removing) tea bags. Click HERE for more.
