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.

I’m keen to know who sells the lemon slice teapot drip catcher and how much?
Hi Elizabeth, I haven't seen anyone that sells the replacement sponges. I think the whole drip catcher is meant to be replaced, unfortunately.
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?
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.
Ooh, I've never thought about a drip catcher. The bird and butterfly ones are cute.
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.
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…
