42 Tremendous Teapot Designs

From Streamlined Avian Tea Sets to Poetic Hourglass Infusers

— January 29, 2013 — Art & Design
This collection of teapot designs highlights some of the best and brightest that you'll find for serving up a favorite brew. Teapots aren't simply a method for which to serve tea, but rather a decorative item that can have a personality all it's own.

Tea is an age-old beverage that is most often used for ceremonial purposes, to help heal after a rough experience and especially to help relax after a long day. Moreover, sharing a cup with friends and family is a great way to bond and reminisce over past experiences. These teapot designs aren't only a great way to brew yourself some a cup of the hot stuff, but also a great gift for a mom or grandmother who appreciates the comfort that can be found in a simple cup.
