Modern techie teapots can come with fancy "keep warm" buttons and functions, but many infusion enthusiasts might be more charmed by the elegant Tripot Teapot. As people who tend to appreciate the beauty in life's subtler details, tea lovers will drink in this graceful design with utter delight.

It is as if Matthew Pauk took a regular spherical teabag brewer, heated it up, and allowed its bulbous base to sag into three rounded legs. The fluid limb-like forms touch the tabletop for a broad and steady footing, opening up the underside of the Tripot Teapot to accommodate the placement of a tiny candle. After your water has been boiled and your orange pekoe has been brewed, a lit tea light beneath will maintain the warm temperature of your drink for a comforting second cup.
