"I'm a little teapot, short and stout.
Here is my handle, here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout:
'Tip me over and pour me out!'"
- "I'm a Little Teapot," children's song

A tea pot or teapot is a special cooking vessel used for steeping leaves to make tea. It is similar to the tea kettle used for heating water over a fire or stove. The teapot, however, typically has a sieve built into it or one that can be used with it to strain the tea leaves from the water.

The teapot was invented in China. Tea has been a staple in China for thousands of years. Did you know? Early teapots were small because they were designed to serve just one drinker. Rather than pouring the tea into a cup, it was consumed directly from the spout! Today, teapots come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They may be made from metal, ceramic, or clay.

Teapots have long been an element of popular culture, from sophisticated afternoon teas to the "tea parties" of children with tiny tea sets. Sometimes, teapots are personified to represent characters. One example is Mrs. Potts from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Interestingly, Mrs. Potts has made cameo appearances in other Disney films, including the camp of Jane and her father in Tarzan.
