The Tea Pottery


There's always one, isn't there.....?











Back to the holidays: I visited a pottery in the town of Leyburn in Wensleydale - the Tea Pottery, to be precise. They make... you guessed... tea pots, in every shape imaginable. In theory they are useable for the nation's favourite brew but I imagine most are bought as decorative items by collectors.

My daughter has an Aga cooker in her new home, green, just like the teapot below (apart from the handle of course, haha.) She abhors kitsch though so I wasn't tempted to get her a gift.

  1. Somewhere I've been into a tea-shop that has the walls lined with such absurdities. I'm afraid I'm from the chuck-a-teabag-in-a-mug school of thought.

  4. Some are a bit outrageous to say the least. I love looking at tea pot collections in cafes.

  5. I love tea pots also. That last one looks like a car we saw at the Saratoga Automobile Museum. We would have had a hard time passing on that one. Looks like another fun trip.

  6. There is an English tea room in Naples that has many decorative teapots like these. I have tried photographs a few times but never liked them enough to post.
