Salam is a classic design launched by Guy Degrenne in 1953. It quickly became popular among tea enthusiasts who were also fans of porcelain. Its ingenious steel cover lined with felt keeps the tea at the right temperature for twice as long as traditional porcelain teapots (around two hours).
Available in a limited edition at Palais des Thés for Christmas 2016, the red four-cup Salam teapot comes, for the first time, with a brushed gold cover.
This timeless, elegant design features a removable filter to allow the subtle flavours of tea to develop.
- For the main porcelain body (without cover), wash by hand or in the dishwasher.
- For the filter, wash by hand or in the dishwasher (no corrosive cleanser, chlorine or bleach).
- For the insulating felt, this can be washed by hand in soapy water, but we do not advise it. If you remove the cover (unscrew the handle and remove the feet or pads) it may deform and become difficult to replace.
- For the steel cover: use a wet soft cloth to clean the outside (no chlorine, bleach, etc.). Do not wash in a dishwasher, as this may cause irreversible damage.
The Salam teapot should never be placed over a heat source (gas, ceramic hob, etc.).
Height of cover (without handle): 10.5 cm
Diameter: 11.7 cm
