Take your tea to the next level
keep friends and family topped up with tea
If there’s one thing us Brits love, it’s a nice cup of tea. According to a recent survey by charity Contact the Elderly, the average Brit drinks a whopping 876 cups of tea a year, that averages out to around 2.4 cups a day and is enough to fill two bath tubs.
As tea is so closely linked with British culture and identity, it’s no surprise that many of the world’s best teapot manufacturers are based in the UK. Using their skill and expertise, these well-known makers produce pieces that are shipped to customers around the world.
To celebrate our love of tea, and to get you in the mood for a nice brew, we’re taking a look at some of our favourite teapot and teacup manufacturers and tea accessories.
Helping you to keep friends and family topped up with tea, the humble teapot has been a feature of the British home for centuries. A good teapot can have a real impact on the flavour of a brew, so if you love your morning cup of tea, investing in a good quality pot is a must.
One of the most popular teapot manufacturers we stock is Chatsford. Made from high quality stoneware, these stylish teapots have been designed to give you a perfect brew every time. Choose from a variety of colours to find the Chatsford teapot that suits your kitchen perfectly.
Once you’ve made a perfectly brewed pot of tea, you’ll need something to pour it into. Luckily for you, we have an excellent selection of mugs to choose from. Ranging from hardwearing enamel mugs from TPS living to simple but stylish porcelain mugs from Pillivuyt, you’re guaranteed to find a mug you love in our collection.
If you want to keep your pot of tea nice and warm as you chat away to visiting friends and family, you’ll need to invest in a good quality tea cosy. Both Emma Bridgewater and The British Textile Company made a choice of eye-catching cosies, each of which has been specifically designed to keep your brew boiling.
Occasionally, even the steadiest of hands will spill a bit of tea. If this happens in your kitchen, you’ll need a tea towel on hand to mop up the mess. Some of the most popular tea towels in our collection are made by British brand Crisp & Dene. Available in a choice of subtle colours and beautiful designs, these stylish tea towels will help add a little personality to your kitchen.
