Tea is a sacred ritual, treat it as such.

Rosie, brew, builders’, cuppa, char or simply tea, there is almost nothing more British than putting the kettle on. A good brew solves all of life’s problems. Richmond Kettle Company know this better than anyone. For more than 100 years they have been making whistling copper kettles the traditional way. Hand spun and hand crafted with love. Each kettle is an individual piece of art. A one off. The process takes weeks to create these masterpieces.

Richmond Kettles are manufactured in Norfolk and their whistling copper kettles have been gracing the country’s kitchens since Edwardian times. In fact since the Ritz started serving afternoon tea and making the art of tea drinking a national institution. The Richmond Kettle Company have been chosen by HM Queen Elizabeth’s Tea Tasters to produce an 8-pint beehive kettle for the royal household. That is a lot of tea, for a lot of dignitaries.

The joy of copper whistling kettles is that over time they become part of your family and begin to take on an individual look of their own. The nature of copper means that its colour changes as used and with age, giving them a distinctive colour all of their own. A patina develops, where a green and brown film starts to cover the surface, making your Richmond Kettles even more gorgeous.

As Boy George once said ‘I would rather have a cup of tea than sex’ and when using a Richmond whistling copper kettle who could disagree. Put the kettle on.
