Is it

My first teapot is typically for one person.

This may reference the fact that there's usually only one "lead" in many situations: one lead actor or actress, one person who leads a competition, one boss for a group, etc.

My second teapot is a person in charge.

The person who leads a group towards an objective.

My third teapot is an umpire.

In some sports, there's the "lead official" and there are other assisting officials.

• After reading your response to @nikki, I see what the actual answer is, but I'll let them discover it since it's right there and I don't see how it fits with a couple of the clues yet. – MetaZen Sep 25 '18 at 16:53
• Oh man, I'm seeing this only now! You should have gone ahead! :) – nikki Sep 25 '18 at 17:14
• +1 from me though :) – nikki Sep 25 '18 at 17:19
• Ha - thanks. I was still trying to figure out #5, which I just saw is a British reference. I wouldn't have found it without her comment, so seemed fair to let you discover it :) – MetaZen Sep 25 '18 at 17:38
