Whether you’re just getting into tea or have been a lifelong fan, you’ve probably encountered the excessive amount of tea accessories. From the essentials like mugs and strainers to the extravagant tea sets and teapots, there really is something for everyone. We’ve compiled a list of the best accessories for any type of tea lover.
Our favorite mug sites are from Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and Etsy. We love how quirky, classic, and cozy their mugs are without compromising quality. Whichever mug you may fancy, we’re sure they’ll add a little pep to your daily cup (or cups) of tea.
Check out these gems we’ve fallen in love with:
Anthropologies’ monogram mugs are timeless and a staple to anyone’s cupboard. It seems like every time I’m at someone’s house, I spot one of these. They really have become a trademark for Anthropologie and will never go out of style. Their perfect thumb whole makes for an easy grip, too!
Also from Anthropologie, these hand-painted teacups are vibrant and will spruce up any cup of tea! The delicate but colorful patterns will also brighten up any kitchen as decoration. These cups really make us want to sit down and have our own little tea party.
This elephant mug from Urban Outfitters will melt your heart as you sip your tea. The little tea bag compartment will save you the trip to the trash can if you get comfortable with your tea but decide it’s time to stop brewing. And we love how cute but definitely not cheesy this design is– after all we are trying to be grown ups drinking tea, right?
Etsy has a wide selection of mugs ranging from custom to quirky and classic. This octopus mug is sure to add some excitement to your morning. Depending on the tea you’re drinking, the octopus won’t be visible until you are about half way done with your cup, so drink up!
Channel your inner Homer Simpson while drinking from this Etsy pink sprinkle donut mug. This mug has the classic shape design with a classic donut featured, what’s not to love?
Show your love for tea to visitors of your home with these cute decor pieces.
While this phrase is usually associated with “But first, coffee” tea lovers deserve some love too. We love the black framed decorative text for a subtle and classy expression of tea love. We think placing this in the kitchen next to your tea kit would be adorable, but really it would look great anywhere!
Whether for your living room coffee table, tea table or your own reference, we love all the facts and suggestions in “Tea” by Hattie Ellis. If you think you know everything about tea, you’ve got to think again. This book taught us things we never thought we needed to know! With tips on exactly how long to brew certain types of tea, how to store tea, and where certain teas come from, you’re bound to learn something new.

This pumpkin tea set is the perfect display to showing off your crafty skills, love for tea and, most importantly, you get to enjoy your own cup of pumpkin tea. Why waste time carving a pumpkin that you can’t get a cup of tea out of anyway? Not to mention, this blogger has a killer recipe for pumpkin chai lattes to put in your new tea set.

Still want the coziness of a cup in your hand as you rush off to that morning meeting? Don’t fret, this to go cup sweater is here to solve your problems! We also love that this cover is so eco-friendly. Think about all the paper those disposable heat guards use! (A lot) And this really does add up. Take this cup sweater with you to Starbucks, or use it for your home-brew. Cozy, stylish, and eco-friendly!
Using the right spoon to stir your tea is essential, and this hand stamped spoon will do just the trick. For that cup of tea that needs honey, milk, or sugar, why not get a designated tea spoon?

‘Tis the season for cute tea spoons! These spoons from Etsy are the perfect way to embrace the holiday season. Perfect for display and functionality, these spoons are sure to spark some sort of conversation with guests. While cozying up to the fire with your festive mug and perhaps Candy Cane tea, why not have your tea spoon be festive too?
Show your love for your favorite drink by wearing it on your head! Super soft and handmade in Peru, this beanie will add charm to any outfit. Fellow tea lovers will flock to you as you walk down the street in your warm, cute, and quirky beanie wherever you may be.
