If you’ve ever been to Alice’s Tea Cup, you’ve probably seen their teapot drip catchers they have attached to every teapot. I think it’s a brilliant idea, especially for kids, since it not only catches any drips, but it also keeps the lid in place. There aren’t a lot of options out there and most are veering on tacky. Here’s a roundup of a few I was able to find online that weren’t totally an eyesore.

Devotea has a few teapot drip catchers with butterfly, bird, teapot and teacups as decorative elements.
– Disposable catcher, also from Devotea.
– These lemon slices are bordering a bit on tacky, but does the job. There’s a ladybug one too.
– This butterfly drip catcher is a cute. (similar)
– An Etsy find, the flower comes in white, pink and black.
– This kitten one you can only buy in a set.

For an economical option, there’s also this set of three butterfly drip catchers.

  1. Hi Elizabeth, I haven't seen anyone that sells the replacement sponges. I think the whole drip catcher is meant to be replaced, unfortunately.

  2. I love my cat 'catcher' too except after many any uses the sponge turns from white into an ugly tea stained color, then alas tears apart….where can a replacement sponge be purchased? Anyone?

  3. Hi notesontea, I didn't even know they existed until I saw them at Alice's Tea Cup. It totally makes sense for that place since it's aimed for kids.

  4. Hi WInnie, it seems like the cat, bird and teacups and teapots are the most popular. I wish there was a bit more of a selection. It really is great to have on hand when you have kids and ahem, your husband, pouring tea.

  5. I have a bunch of them and use them when I have family, and kids or a lot of people to serve (hubby loves to drip the tea on my tablecloth..so he gets one!). I found them after taking my niece to Alice's and we got a bunch of them in my travels. I have the cat and bird and a bunch with teacups and teapots…
