An early 20th century teapot produced by Arthur Wood Pottery in Staffordshire England for the ‘Typhoo Tea’ Company. It was customary to keep tea leaves in the pot for a long time, known as ‘steeping’ or ‘mash’ to enrich the flavour and add depth. Unfortunately this process often created a bitter (rank) tainted taste if allowed to stand for too long, so to outdo its rivals Typhoo claimed that: “TYPHOO TEA DOES NOT BECOME RANK WITH LONG STANDING” and the slogan appears here on the teapot lid. With a pie crust top and a special filter which can be unscrewed from the inner spout. 14 cm tall .
