Teapot History Around the World

Teapot History in China and East Asia
The design of teapots were probably derived from kettles and pots and the earliest teapots were said to have come from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and were made from Zisha, or purple clay of the YiXing region of China. They were small, designed for a single drinker, and used for brewing and drinking tea from the spout. The Japanese demand for teapots led to their growth and popularity and by the 15th century CE, both the Chinese and Japanese would drink tea for ceremonial purposes and the tea, as a beverage, was not anymore regarded solely for its medicinal purposes.1

Chinese scholars and intellectuals also involved themselves in the design of teapots. The "cult of tea" in Japan, led by the artist Sen Rikyu (1522-1591), became an impetus for the stylistic and artistic evolution in YiXing teapot designs. Teapots became detailed with themes from nature and the YiXing pots themselves became prized as creative works. The Japanese also began making red clay or shudei teapots and imported Chinese artists to teach them potting methods.1

Teapot History in Europe
From the end of the 17th century, tea was shipped from China to Europe as part of the export of exotic spices and luxury goods. The ships that brought the tea also carried porcelain teapots, and majority of which were painted in blue and white underglaze. These porcelain teapots, being completely vitrified and, thus, able to withstand sea water without damage, were packed below the deck while tea were kept on top in the dry.2

Tea drinking in Europe was initially reserved for the upper class since it was very expensive. Porcelain teapots were particularly desirable because porcelain could not be made in Europe at that time. It wasn't until 1708 that Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus devised a way of making porcelain in Dresden, Germany, and started the first porcelain factory in Europe in 1710.2

Today, teapots come in a wide array of styles and designs and typically named after the culture that makes them, like Chinese teapots, Japanese teapots, English teapots and the like, and they are not only enjoyed for tea drinking but also as a classy decoration.
