Since tea is not only my business but also my passion; I can spend hours shopping for all things tea. Bone china teapots are on the top on my list because they are not only eye-catching, but they are functional as well.
Bone china is the English version of porcelain. To some, it is regarded as the highest quality and best china money can buy. In 1799, Josiah Spode II invented bone china. He discovered that by mixing bone ashes with clay, it could be fired at a lower temperature than porcelain but maintain its durability and delicate look. The end result is a brilliant white, highly translucent, delicate but extremely strong piece of ceramic. It has become the most well liked type of porcelain in the United States and Britain.
Bone china teapots should be considered an investment, as some can be quite pricey. I love white teapots because it allows me to:
- See the color and brilliance of the tea
- Mix and match with antique, whimsical, and/or classic cups and saucers as well as plates to create many different looks with just one teapot
- Flexibility to bring in other colors for the changing of seasons or my mood
There are many white bone china teapots on the market. I have chosen the Best of the Best based on:
- Embossing and/or textural elements
- Accessory pieces in the line
