Top 10 Novelty, Amazing and Unusual Teapots

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 to find out if the teapot maketh the tea or is it the other way around?!? So without further ado I bring you…

  2. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable information to work on. You’ve done an impressive job and our whole community will be thankful to you.

  3. The cottage one sounds amazing! I have to admit that I didn’t think this post would do that well, I thought it was just too “British”, but how wrong was I, loads of people, including yourself seemed to like it. I guess Teapots are more popular than I might have thought.

  4. As I sit and drink my morning oolong (loose, not bagged), I enjoyed this presentation. I used to collect teapots, but since adopting a more mobile lifestyle sold most of them. One of favorites was a little English cottage where the steam came out of the chimney. I had some really ugly ones too, mostly gifts from folks who thought any teapot must be a good teapot. I have reduced my collection to four favorites. Thanks for a fun and entertaining post. Enjoyed the comments of others as well.

  5. Wow!! I love most of those teapots…where did you find them?..would really love to collect them for my mama..she would love to have one to add to her many collections…

    * Even if the whole world call it teapot..I always serve coffee in those things as well…especially when there are more than 2 guests who enjoys coffee more… 😀

  6. Well, I hate all tea unless it’s iced & heavily sugared. But I’m sure Mama would LOVE this…

  7. I really enjoyed this article. I love tea – tea leaves (bags when I am lazy) and I am always looking for new funky tea pots. Thanks. I love the Tardis!

  8. I like No. 5, 3, and 2 best. The others make me nauseous just thinking about them! But those three are excellent and sorted. I don’t really have a spare £1,500 for the bamboo one, though. Which is a shame.

  9. *LOL* Whatever your own REAL opinion is, is always the best one to comment with! If you think they are crap just say so, this blog is my own opinion and there will be millions who would disagree with it.

  10. I think they’re rubbish! Oh, hang on… what’s the opposite of “rubbish”? “Great”? I got so confused by things. I do love tea, though. And these tea pots are DISGUSTING! Or great. Whichever word is the positive one.

  11. This is awesome! My favorite is definitely the Sorapot. It is great to see what is inside the teapot. I wonder why no one has ever come up with this idea before.

  12. hi, i was hoping when i talked about the teapot i have that u might do a list of 10best and come up with some real humdingers. and u certainly did not disappoint. sure difficult to pick a favourite but being a practical person, i chose the one i would most like to use myself, the humourous lionel richie one. that design of teapot allows for 2cups of tea at the same time being very compact and easy to carry with one hand.

  13. I love this, it must take a long time to narrow it down to 10. Great finds, no.3 is so cool! Whilst on the subject of teapots, check out the Back to the Future one I was gifted at Christmas:

  14. Oh I love to drink tea….and OMG At The Steampunk Tea pot..I need to buy one of those to serve tea to my clients while I read their tarot using (of course) The Steampunk Tarot deck!!!!

Which one did you like?
