Meet Höganäs, my new fabulous teapot



I need to thank one lovely foodblogger for inadvertedly introducing me to Höganäs Keramik last November in Denmark, and another dear foodblogger for buying it for me in Sweden, taking it to Finland and shipping it to me in Estonia (what a pan-Nordic affair!!), where I finally got hold of it today.

Waiting 9 months for it was definitely worth it..

Taikinapoikka lives! This is so pretty, classic Scandinavian design ...

linda said...

Love it too

Lydia said...

Absolutely lovely! I'll have to try and track one down for my tea-drinking husband.

K & S said...

definitely worth the wait :)

Zarah Maria said...

Ah! How great! And you're so very welcome! I can't believe it's already 9 months since you were here...

Andreea said...

absolutely gorgeous.

joey said...

The absolute gorgeousness of Scandinavian design! :) I love these things!

lobstersquad said...

looks very nordic, certainly, and it seems to have had a nice trip

Oh, my yes it has started life with a very grand journey and has now landed in a very sweet home indeed. I can see why you would fall for it.

Sophie said...

Oooh, that is gorgeous - well worth the wait.
I quite like my teapot (which has pigs on it) but somehow it just doesn't seem sophisticated enough now :-)

Gorgeous teapot! I like the clean lines.
I keep forgetting to tell you: I haven't done anything creative with the Kama yet, but I am really enjoying it everyday.. I mix it in with my fruit and yogurt for lunch! It's especially good with apples. I want to try making some candies with it - just as soon as my garden gives me a break. I'm making apple butter now!

..and it is so pretty!!

Antti said...

My pleasure. Wish we could've met sooner though... =)

Tea said...

What a lovely teapot! I'm going to be imagining you enjoying many a relaxing cup of tea with that gorgeous pot

Pille said...

Alanna - he's very much alive, indeed. It's just that his current priorities lie elsewhere ;-)

Linda - hmm. It's cool, and it's hot as well. But definitely not lukewarm :)

Bea - thanks! I can see the similarity!

Lydia - check out their website, maybe they've got distributors in your part of the world. They had none in Estonia, that's why I had to wait for it so long!

K&S - I think so, too :)

Zarah Maria - it's been 9 months indeed! And thank you again for introducing me to this teapot. And Madeleines, actually :)

Joey - you do seem to like everything Nordic. Maybe you live on the wrong side of the planet:)

Lobstersquad - thanks! I'm so sorry I didn't get hold of it before you arrived, as I had originally planned.

Tanna - you can, can't you!?

Sophie - if you like your teapot, then there's no need to worry if it's sophisticated or not. I 'survived' seven years in Edinburgh with a rather horrible teapot, so I really wanted to treat myself to a nice one now:)

Katie - so glad to hear that you've been enjoying your kama! Yogurt-fruit-kama sounds about right, and I'm intrigued to hear about your candy-making plans. PS Kama cereal balls would be better with yogurt than milk, too!

Antti - I tried, believe me :)

Andrea, Valentina, Tea - thank you for popping by and commenting!

I've been lusting after this teapot for over a year and think i may have to finally buy one in aqua

thepassionatecook said...

what a beautiful pot! i've been thinking of ditching mine forever - it's common, ugly and it leaks... not sure why it is still using up precious space in my kitchen! have to dig around for it online or book a trip to sweden ;-)
