The Tea Centre’s range of tea sets

Here at The Tea Centre, we have a gorgeous range of tea sets to make every tea-drinking experience an absolute delight. Tea sets are a great accompaniment to a well-stocked tea cupboard and are a practical way to serve tea to guests.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our tea sets, which are not only designed for functionality but to last a person’s lifetime. You will notice that our tea sets are beautifully crafted, and made using elements of ceramic, fine bone china, and stainless steel across the range. It’s all part of the ceremony and the joy of enjoying the finest tea possible.


Regional differences

Choosing a contemporary, traditionally English or traditional Japanese tea set can be based on whether you intend on keeping your set out for display purposes or are planning to use it for specific purposes.

  • English-style tea sets:the teapots in many English-style tea sets will not contain an infuser and usually come in the larger 4–6 cups size (600–650ml capacity).
  • Japanese-made tea sets: Japanese ceremonial tea sets are quite varied and come in all sorts of materials, shapes, and sizes. They are usually smaller than English-styled tea sets, with 400ml capacity and above (about 2–4 cups). Several in our range will come with traditional small cups that have no handles.
  • Contemporary teapots: these teapots are usually more neutral in design and crafted with practicality in mind. However, such innovative designs can be quite attractive in their simplicity.

    Teaware material differences

    In the same way that a carpenter is lost without his tool belt, a tea drinker can’t enjoy the full experience of tea without the proper tea set on hand! When it comes to choosing the perfect set to suit your lifestyle, it’s important to consider the following pros and cons of each type of teaware material.

  • Ceramic: traditional feel and retains heat well. However, this material is more prone to chipping than others
  • Glass: aesthetically pleasing to watch tea leaves unfurling during the infusion process. However, glass does not retain heat as well as other materials
  • Earthenware: traditionally, there’s no washing up required as earthenware is said to retain the memories of the tea and tea drinker
  • Porcelain: beautiful pure white colour and an convenient material for teaware. Used to be very delicate but is now much more durable
  • Bone china: Developed in England by combining porcelain and bone ash. Considered more durable than regular porcelain

    Making a cup of tea is not as hard as it sounds, thanks to our easy-to-use range of tea sets. Whether you need a moment to yourself in the evenings or are hosting a tea party in the coming weeks, we’re bound to have the perfect tea set for you.

    To make the perfect cuppa next time you want to unwind, we'd recommend brewing one teaspoon of loose leaf tea to every cup of tea. Most of your tea sets will have teapots inbuilt with an infuser, making it easy to scoop in your tea of choice and dispose of used tea leaves afterwards.
