Teapots & Tea Cups
Tea for you, two or more. Our porcelain teapots are meticulously handmade – each lid is made to fit perfectly with its one-off matching pot. Our teapots pour beautifully and have been designed to be cherished every day.
Carbon neutral since 2020
With an elegant and timeless design aesthetic, Mud Australia thoughtfully creates porcelain homewares that are designed to last.
From our studio in Sydney we hand make every porcelain piece, actively building relationships with the people who buy and love our products across the world.
Sustainability is built into our design DNA. Our products eschew seasonality, complement any interior, and are made to last. All new additions to our range are designed to be useful and complement existing designs. We believe in conscious and responsible consumption, and this starts with good design.
We've always been dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint and our commitment to become carbon neutral was proudly achieved by the end of 2020.
Handmade porcelain Teapots & Tea Cups, designed to last
The Mud Australia drinkware collection is proudly made in Sydney. Our pouring team is trained in-house and use a combination of experience and intuition to cast each piece. The beauty of our pieces can be attributed to the hand-made process and human touch.
Using porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France, our 19 bespoke colours are mixed in-house. The pigment is tinted to the body at slip stage to provide colour depth.
Clear glaze is applied to the interior of each piece, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.
Our Teapots & Tea Cups are food safe and can, with some care, be used in the microwave and dishwasher. Explore our drinkware collection, from porcelain Espresso & Latte Cups, Mugs, Wine Cups and Glassware to build your Mud Australia collection.

What are Mud Australia’s Teapots & Tea Cups made from?
Our Teapots & Tea Cups and Saucers are made in our Sydney studio from high-quality porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France.
Are Mud Australia Teapots & Tea Cups dishwasher and microwave safe?
Our porcelain collection is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the microwave, oven and dishwasher.
To ensure your porcelain does not chip in the dishwasher, gently place each piece on the racks and ensure they are not touching other items.
If you don't have a dishwasher, hand wash with warm soapy water and carefully stack in a dish rack to dry with a clear space between each item.
Caution should be taken with sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven / from oven to cold bench) as this may cause thermal shock which will damage your porcelain. Always place hot items onto either a cloth, wood, wire racking, or our Terrazzo Trivets to cool porcelain from the oven.
Can I use my Teapot on the stove top?
Please note, our porcelain Teapots are not designed to be placed directly onto an oven stovetop or open flame.
What porcelain Teapots and Tea Cups does Mud Australia sell?
