Thanks to modern innovations in tea pots and cups, where time-honoured traditions engage with present-day design and functionality, the simple tea ceremony experience has taken on a new, and perhaps unexpected, twist. In the series ahead, let’s journey through the transformational details in evolution of tea accessories, the innovative features and aesthetic modern approach, which you would never have imagined.

The Evolution of Tea Pots and Cups

From Ancient Craftsmanship to Modern Design

Tea pots and cups first spread out of China into the rest of Asia during the Song dynasty of the 10th to 13th centuries. Teapots made from the porous Yixing clay were especially prized, as the tea was believed to become more flavourful while brewing inside them. By the time tea pots and cups crossed into Europe and made the long journey to North American shores, fine, expensive porcelain and bone china tea sets became the epitome of refined civilisation and high society in the Victorian era.
