The teapot was invented in China during the Yuan Dynasty in the 14th century. The earliest surviving teapot is from 1513 and is attributed to famous teapot maker Gong Chun.
Teapots work by providing a sealed environment for the oils and flavours of the tea leaves to be absorbed into the water without losing liquid to condensation. A narrow spout is angled to prevent steam escaping while allowing the tea to be poured.
