Yes, you may ingest tiny amounts of the metal, but it is not a health risk at this very low levels. Please be reassured and continue to enjoy using your tea service! The only risk I can think of here is if the teapot was electroplated over a lead layer, which might get exposed over time...but that is unlikely.
It's not a great idea to use aluminium, but as long as they are not damaged the risk from them is also likely to be low.
