Buy the best teacups from Sous Chef! J. Alfred Prufrock may have measured out his life in coffee spoons in T.S. Eliot’s poem, but it often feels that British life is punctuated by cups of tea. 

Teacups are made in a wide variety of materials: glass teacups allow you to see the clarity of the tea, but various forms of china dominate; stoneware, porcelain, and finest of all, bone china.

Japanese teacups, often characterised by their small size and exquisite designs, are integral to the Japanese tea ceremony. 

They often come in sets with matching teapots, spoons and other accoutrements for the ceremony like a matcha whisk and holder.
