Discover our silver Teapot and Tea Sets Collection. Whilst the history of tea containers and teapots dates back to China in around 206BC, the European way of drinking tea that we know today took centuries longer to develop, and even so, we still see a significant Eastern influence in our tea drinking habits today. Due to the high cost of tea, the first silver teapots created were typically small and reserved for the wealthy. As tea drinking increased in popularity, so did the range of silver tea sets available, which during the early 1700s accessories such as sugar tongs, sugar boats and tea strainers were perfect additions to a tea drinkers collection. Today, these items would be a beautiful addition to an afternoon tea set or for hosting a tea party. Silver itself is the perfect material to retain the heat of the tea, and the thermal conductivity means the tea infuses at a higher temperature, allowing for the perfect blend. The durability and sturdy nature of the silvers means that the teapots can be used repeatedly and maintain quality, a great investment piece! Here at 2Covet, the selection of silver teapots and tea sets are selected by our expert silver dealers to ensure you find an unrivalled piece to add to your collection.
