Love the weight and large capacity of this pot. It is more of a dark teal color than the green in the picture. I was a little put off by the fact that the teapot top was a slightly darker teal color than the rest of the pot. I am guessing that the shading is intentional but I felt it looked a bit odd. And of course, if you don't put a drip catcher on it, it drips if poured aggressively. all in all a serviceable large and pretty attractive teapot for the price, which was several dollars lower than anything I could find in downtown Toronto, which had surprisingly few big teapots.
