Having the right blend of tea wouldn’t be enough if you don’t have a reliable teapot infuser. Sure, having high quality tea leaves are a must but most people don’t realize that to bring out the best flavor, you need a good teapot infuser. I am a tea lover and I have my own collection of tea infusers. I wanted to buy a new one, a teapot with infuser that’s of high quality, with a good design and can bring out the flavor of the tea leaves. I came across the FORLIFE Curve 24-Ounce Teapot with Infuser on Amazon, it only came in red but I have no qualms about it. It’s like a fire engine red and the teapot itself looks better in person.
There are teapots and there are teapots with infusers. What’s the difference between the two? Well, teapots are where you store your tea after it has been brewed. Teapots with infusers are where you can brew your tea and at the same time pour from it when you needed a drink. I prefer teapots with infusers since they are more practical from just teapots alone.
- While other prefers fancier looking teapots, the charm of this teapot is how simple it is
- The spout doesn’t drip or spill tea every time I pour some tea on my cup
- Easy to clean and since it’s small, very easy to store as well
$28.55 on Amazon
Price: The teapot costs $26.42 with free shipping. I made my order on Monday and received the item two days later. It’s that fast, that’s why I love shopping on Amazon. It came in a secured box, all compact, no moving parts and it’s protected with foam and tape.
According to the ad in Amazon, the CURVE teapot is complete with an extra fine 0.3mm stainless steel infuser as well as a built in teapot and cup. The design is simple and making your own cup of tea a lot easier and not messy at all. The extra fine infuser gives your tea an even better steep for loose leaf teas such as oolong.

My experience with the product
This little teapot is not adorned with any sophisticated design, it’s very simple yet it’s a very satisfying buy. It’s lightweight so you can hold it in one hand with no problem. I wanted to get a larger pot to hold more tea but decided to buy this small teapot instead. The stainless still inserts fits the top and then extends near the bottom of the pot so the leaves stay submerged and brew in the water. The lid stays in place even if the pot is tilted but out of habit I still place my finger on the knob. The spout doesn’t drip once you are done pouring which is a good thing.
The infuser is pretty fine, even when I use smaller and finer tea leaves they did not pass through it.
I use this pot daily for personal use since I find it very convenient when I want to have tea alone. I don’t need a fancy teapot for myself. I have other larger teapots for use when I have company but this one will suffice when I am on my own.

I like how the interior doesn’t stain regardless of how many times I have used it for the whole month. The ceramic glaze still looks pretty nice. If you find tea stains on your teapot it’s recommended that you clean it with baking soda dissolved in water and then pop it in the dishwasher.
The teapot comes with instructions. What caught my eye was in the warning label for the teapot, you should not put this teapot on the stove since it’s not made for that purpose. You can let boiling water set for 15-20 seconds before pouring it on the teapot. If you are looking for a teapot that you can heat on the stove then this is not the teapot you are looking for.
- The interior did not show signs of wear or stain.
- The infuser is deep enough to hold and brew a couple of tea leaves.
- The silicone ring around the lid makes sure that the lid stays in place.
- There is a thumb extension for the infuser so you can place your finger there whenever you pour without holding down the lid.
- Small enough to hold in one hand.
- The fire engine red color is very lively and vibrant. It looks like something a child would play with for their tea parties.
- Great for one person use.
- The size might be a con for some; this is not a teapot for many cups. This is enough for one large cup of tea.
- Keeps tea warm for a decent time. If you are slow drinker then you might find that your tea has cooled down a bit after a while.
Would I recommend this product?
Definitely! The FORLIFE Curve Teapot with infuser is the perfect little gem for tea lovers out there who enjoy quality tea time, bringing out great flavors for their tea with this teapot. The infuser has enough space and deep enough to submerge and brew a number of tea leaves and even the fine ones can’t pass through the infuser. I really like that there is no dripping whenever you pour your tea out.
The FORLIFE Curve Teapot is the perfect gift for your tea loving friends! Ever since I bought a teapot from them I fell in love with it, I knew that their teapots are very well designed; even the bigger ones are great. I have three of these small teapots and I love them. My husband even took one to his office and it’s the perfect little thing to brew his tea. My mother-in-law saw my teapot and was charmed by it so I decided to give her one for her birthday since she is a tea lover like me.
