Find time out with a pot of tea

It's four weeks until Christmas, which means it can be a stressful time of year. If you’re not rushing between parties you’re frantically trying to get all your shopping done in time for the main event. And that means your book is left unread, your magazine pile is overflowing, and your Sky+ box is ready to explode with unwatched episodes of X Factor. In the midst of all of this it's important to take some time out for yourself, half an hour to sit down, put your feet up, and catch up on all the culture you’ve been missing out on. And nothing says self-indulgent me-time like a pot of tea. Forget a bag of builders stewing in a chipped mug, a whole pot of loose leaf tea to yourself is the ultimate in modern luxury. Here is our pick of the best teapot designs around...

Blooming marvellous: It may be winter outside but Spring has sprung with the Dawn Chorus collection from Portmeirion

Mellow yellow: Relax with this Blazing teapot from The Contemporary Home

Time for Tat: Sailor’s arm-inspired artwork at Luna and Curiouser

Royal Flush: Emma Bridgewater’s Jubilee teapot is fit for a queen

Good as gold: Royal Crown Derby’s Darley Abbey has the Midas touch
