4 cups

LC is like, and she is Canadian so you KNOW she is serious about tea "I'll need the 2 cat cups and a big 4 cup teapot to go with it" and I am like "righto, eh?".
Of course, when you make something, you know it will shrink 10-15 percent at least, and I am one of those vague and imprecise people who does not measure things, so I just dumped a large lump of clay on the wheel, and voila!
As the wife says "the mugs are big, at least one and a half cups, so this teapot is perfect.  Each person has a mug of tea, then there is at least one cup of tea left in the pot to offer the guest or split".  And I am like "SURE, that was what I intended all along....."
