In the endearing children's song, "I'm a Little Teapot," the subject of the ditty describes itself as short and stout. That shape is considered ideal for steeping and pouring a pot of tea. Not surprisingly, as tea is central to Chinese culture, the teapot was invented during the Yuan Dynasty (from 1206 to 1368 AD). Today, the squat shape prevails for its ability to allow proper infusion of the tea while keeping the beverage nice and hot. Still, the design possibilities are endless as materials, colors, and patterns can make these useful service items truly unique additions. Nest Casa rounds up 11 of the hottest pots for tea time that quench your thirst and style taste.

$412.00 BUY NOW

Stark modernism marks this impressive teapot from Tom Dixon, the self-taught, OBE- awarded English designer known for his often quirky yet thoroughly modern designs.

Coppermill Kitchen

Vintage Copper Tea Kettles & Coffee Pots
$675.00 BUY NOW

Beth Sweeney of Coppermill Kitchen turned her passion for buying her very first piece of copper kitchenware into a burgeoning business. Sweeney sources and refurbishes vintage, copper kitchenware pieces, like these gleaming, copper tea kettles. They feature decorative etchings, new silver linings, and a nifty thumb rest on the handles that steady the pour.


Hippomobile Teapot
$685.00 BUY NOW

Hermès brings a luxe, equestrian theme to everything it makes, from its iconic Avalon blankets to its bags and charming porcelain pieces. For this light-hearted teapot, part of the Hippomobile set, artist Gianpaolo Pagni turned to jockey silks and cartoons for the lovely motif. By making the horse elongated, he imagined a “limousine” horse for several riders in the vein of American cartoonist Tex Avery.

Nest Casa Decor

Ceramic Teapot
$449.00 Buy Now

Almost no culture takes tea more seriously than the Japanese. The ritual of the tea ceremony to prepare and present matcha relies heavily on the tenets of Zen Buddhism. The shape of this ceramic teapot, in kanbin green, takes cues from Japanese sake traditions. Whatever you pour from it, this cast-iron case keeps drinks warm while you savor them.

La Table Hermès

Bleus D'Ailleurs Tea/Coffee Pot
$635.00 BUY NOW

The classic combination of blue and white on this teapot by Hermès conjures up visions of Greece, Morocco, and Portugal. That said, it hails from France, where the color pairing is also popular. From the Bleus d'Ailleurs collection, the pot features a graphic pattern with blue hexagons that look hand-painted.

Jonathan Hanse X Marie Daage

Ciels Bleus Teapot
$601.00 BUY NOW

Leave it to these cloud-dotted blue skies to inspire your next pot of tea. For this piece, New York City designer Jonathan Hansen teamed up with Marie Daâge—a Paris-based artist known for hand-painting the world-famous Limoges French porcelain. She looked to heavenly tableaus found on Baroque- and Renaissance-era ceilings to design this set. Nest Casa thinks it works just as nicely in any contemporary setting.


Herbarium Porcelain Coffee Pot
$580.00 BUY NOW

Gucci's unconventional Herbarium porcelain dish set gathers its look from the famous Italian fashion house’s vintage aesthetic. Produced by Richard Ginori, the playful Toile de Jouy design made from cherry branches, leaves, and flowers is borrowed from retro fabric—but it looks equally at home on this porcelain teapot.

Moda Domus

Carnation Porcelain Tea Set
$850.00 BUY NOW

This teapot from Moda Domus is part of a 17-piece set that is furnished with everything you need for a proper tea service for six. This includes the creamer pitcher and the sugar dish. Even more impressive than the scale is the Carnation pattern that transforms the porcelain from blank canvas to colorful floral paintings.

Palais Des Thes

Salam White Teapot
Price upon request BUY NOW

The tea experts at Palais des Thés in Paris take keeping tea at the right temperature seriously. They've added a felt-lined steel cover to the Salam teapot, which holds tea properly warmed for about two hours, improving porcelain’s already admirable thermal properties. The design is a classic, initially introduced in 1953 by Degrenne—one of France’s  distinguished tabletop and kitchenware brands for over 70 years.
