Wiki tells us that a teapot is in fact a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or an herbal mix in boiling or near-boiling water, and for serving the resulting infusion which is called tea. What a load of rubbish! Most of us chuck in a few tea bags and away it goes, but I offer you to join me as I try and find out if the teapot maketh the tea or is it the other way around?!? So without further ado I bring you…
The World’s Top 10 Most Amazing Teapots
10 – But what if Lionel Richie likes coffee?!? (£39.00)
This rather impressive, handmade teapot is based on the song lyrics of Lionel Ritchie. While it may be simple I would like to bet it would bring quite a few smiles to peoples faces. (well I smiled at it anyway)
9 – ”Fancy a brew Mr Wells? (£70.57)
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery and industrial inspired items much like this incredible teapot! Sure it is a little pricey but if you want a teapot that will get everyone talking then this is it.
8 – PC or TP?!? (£59.95)
Do you know someone who sits in front of the PC for hours on end? Then why not offer them a cup of tea from this very apt PC monitor teapot! This would make a great gift for a blogger or maybe someone that spends their lives on Facebook. (most of us then)

Do you like some Toast with your Tea in the mornings? Well now you don’t have to wait for one or the other, because you can have both things at once! But where do you put the butter?!?

Why so expensive? Well this is very rare indeed, it comes with a registered design number and is just about as exclusive as you are going to get without talking silly prices.
5 – Not a Teapot, more a Sorapot. (£250)
Made from stainless steel, borosilicate glass and food-grade silicone, the Sorapot articulates the ancient ritual of tea in a thoroughly modern way and in return it looks stunning as a teapot is ever going to get.
