Choosing the Perfect Teapot

When choosing the perfect teapot, there are a few considerations. Whether you're looking for a large teapot for the whole family or one with a built-in filter for loose-leaf teas in the home office, we have all the teapots covered. 

Our teapot range is exclusively hand-picked by our tea experts here at Cup of Tea and features glass, china, porcelain and cast-iron teapots. From contemporary and cool to classic and colourful, we have little and big family-sized teapots and handy pots for one. Some of our teapots feature built-in filters for your favourite loose-leaf teas, while others are classic in design for all types of tea.

Choosing the perfect teapot


Cast Iron Teapots

Enjoy a cup of tea Japanese-style with one of our beautiful cast iron teapots and teaware. The elegant teapots are not only stylish but are made to stand the test of time. What's more, the cast iron will distribute and retain the heat of your tea, keeping it warm for longer.

Cast iron is incredibly durable and can last many generations. Virtually smash proof, a cast iron teapot is also designed to keep the tea at optimum temperature because the material conducts heat beautifully. Enamelled on the inside to prevent rust, cast iron teapots are easy to clean and maintain. Of course, they are not dishwasher or microwave safe, but the removable stainless-steel mesh tea strainer makes our cast iron teapots easy to use, clean and ideal for all loose-leaf teas.

Glass Teapots

The beauty of glass teapots, and why we love them, is that you can watch your tea leaves work their magic. We love to use glass teapots when showing off a new fruit tea laden with colourful fruit or brewing Jasmine Dragon Pearls because the little pearls slowly unravel, as if by magic, and turn the tea a stunning light yellow colour. 

Glass, in nature, is elegant and offers itself well to highly stylish designs. As a result, we have glass teapots to suit all tastes and budgets.

Porcelain Teapots

China or Porcelain clay is made from the mineral Kaolin, also known as 'china clay'. It is soft in nature and can be expertly moulded into either elaborate or simple designs. The mineral is also used to produce fine paper, paint, cosmetics, and other products. Kaolin is named after a hill in China where the mineral has been mined for centuries. Revered for centuries, this mineral is one of the purest forms of clay there is.


Zaara Porcelain Teapots

Our porcelain Zaara Teapots are beautifully modern in design and come in various colours and both matt and gloss glazes. 

The Zaara porcelain teapots come with a stainless-steel lid and a removable stainless-steel filter for loose-leaf teas. The filters can be removed by those who prefer teabags. 

Our porcelain Zaara Teapots come in two sizes – 0.5l, making around 2 cups and 0.9l which produces about 4 cups.

Tilting Teapot

The Tilting teapot is a hoot and ideal for those with a bit of a sense of humour. The unusual teapot is made from white porcelain, but the design is functional as well as kooky.

Users are advised to place the leaves on the shelf in the pot, add boiling water as usual and when the tea is brewed, tilt the teapot into its alternative rest position. The leaves will be held out of the brew to ensure that your tea is now over-brewed.

Stainless Steel Tea Ball 4.5cm

Our stainless-steel tea ball is the ideal accessory for loose-leaf tea fans. The infuser tea ball comes with fine mesh and a chain link for easy usage, meaning you can use this tea ball to make the perfect tea time and time again.

Our customers say. "These are a great way to avoid those unwanted tea leaves at the bottom of your teapot or mug. Long enough not to risk them falling in!"
