Teapot was invented in China during the Yuan Dynasty ,teapots are small by western standards because they are generally designed for a single drinker, and the Chinese historically drank the tea directly from the spout. The size reflects the importance of serving single portions so that the flavors can be better concentrated and controlled, then repeated.
