There’s something comforting about brewing a pot of tea. The steaming hot water, the herby leaves, the sweet scent of sugar and cream — it’s the kind of slow afternoon that “cottagecore” fans dream of, because who wouldn’t want a tea break in a tiny cottage overlooking the countryside? Of course, this isn’t everyone’s reality, and while brewing a big pot of tea sounds quaint, it’s not exactly efficient if you’re just making it for yourself. For the perfect amount of liquid comfort, you’ll love this new teapot and teacup set over at T.J. Maxx.

This set is so great because it is perfect for one person, and it’s priced at $15. The best part? Both the teacup and the pot are decorated like the outside of a strawberry. The teapot is red with tiny seeds, with a green strawberry stem with leaves as the topper for the pot. On the side, there are hand-painted white flowers with elegant green leaves and a matching green handle. The cup matches similarly with a red exterior, with white flowers and leaves and a green handle as well. 

This ceramic tea set is microwave- and dishwasher-safe. Made to stack on top of each other for easy storing, the teapot is 9 inches wide and 6 inches tall, while the cup is 7 inches wide and 3 inches tall. If you can’t find this set in stores, you can buy it on the T.J. Maxx website.

Needless to say, this is exactly what your cottagecore, whimsical heart needs to brew a pot of afternoon tea. Don’t forget a batch of something sweet to go with your tea, like these Ted Lasso biscuits, or even these chai cookies.
