When considering the choice of teapot to replace their dwindling number of prestigious but vulnerable to chipping teapots, Tate Liverpool cafe manager, Andy Blackmore, considered the alternative teapots on the market and found them all wanting in one or several respects for his busy cafe, which not only serves visitors and staff at Tate Liverpool Art Gallery but also tourists at its Albert Dock location. He then found out about the TEAPY T-4-1 tea service with its many advantages for customers and operator alike. However, he then had to persuade his colleagues at Tate Eats with its great reputation in fourteen locations to allow this break from teapot service with their high quality loose leaf tea. This was obtained and Andy and his serving staff and customers are delighted with the change, “TEAPY T-4-1 maintains the quality of our tea service with significantly reduced time, effort, and breakages.”

Inventor Roland Hill said, “It was with some trepidation that I approached Andy Blackmore with my tea-making invention, as I knew they used teapots in all Tate Eats locations. However, he immediately saw the benefits. Having another of my inventions, one-way vision graphics, used on the windows of the gallery for some years, it is an exceptional pleasure to see TEAPY T-4-1 within  the colourful cafe decor designed by Sir Peter Blake.”
