Porcelain teapots are one of the most popular types of fine china tea ware. It’s very durable and does not easily chip. These tea pots have low porosity and beautiful glassy qualities. Hard-paste or “true” porcelain originated in China during the T’ang dynasty (618-907 A.D.); however, high quality porcelain comparable to modern tea ware of today was not developed until the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368 A.D.). Browse through our beautiful Porcelain Teapots, many with matching teacups and saucers, dessert plates, and cream and sugar sets. Or you may wish to shop our Porcelain Tea Sets for more choices. Plus several lovely fine porcelain tea pots can be found on sale in The Teapot Shoppe’s New Markdowns. Whether it’s a whimsical design, vintage flowery chintz, or a contemporary polka dot pattern, you will be proud to display them in your home or add to your porcelain teapot collection!
