This teapot comes from China, and it is a trick teapot! Inside there are two separate compartments, and depending where you place your fingers - either covering one hole or covering another hole - you can get the teapot to pour out of either internal compartment. Supposedly, back in the day, it was a way to get rid of an unsuspecting enemy, since you could pour out some tea for yourself and drink it quite safely (provided you had covered the correct hole!) and you could then pour a drink for your enemy, and they would unknowingly get what was in the second compartment, maybe poison. Here Tim demonstrates pouring a cup of tea, and then adding milk, both from the same teapot. I suppose you could have tea or coffee, or whatever you like really.

The Assassin's Teapot is made in China, of green glazed porcelain.

Tiny, poor quality, no information on how to fill ( look online ).
Not worth the money.
Avoid total rip-off.

This is a fragile item and it arrived fully intact. It came with a separate little piece that I do not know what to do with. This is a novelty item and I am very pleased with how it works. It is unfortunate that it does not come with instructions.

Fantastic item! Bought this for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. I have never found something quite like this anywhere else, so it is very unique, and it also works exactly as intended. Very fun for entertaining guests! Try making tea with butterfly flowers and filling one side, with the other filoed with lemonade. The acid makes the blue butterfly tea turn pink when they mix, a very entertaining party trick!
