Make Tea Time More Magical With These Charming Hogwarts Tea Sets

Even though I wouldn't want to give up my morning coffee for anything, I still appreciate tea. Coffee jolts me awake and helps me start my day, but tea is a cozy and soothing hug. I enjoy the ritual of boiling water, adding just the right amount of loose leaf tea to my pot, and putting a tiny dot of honey in my cup. On a crazy day or when I'm feeling sick, it's just what I need. If the tea has a geeky name or my mug features Han Solo, all the better. That's why I think these hand-painted Hogwarts sets are to avada kedavra for.

Etsy seller Ophelia's Gypsy Caravan paints each piece by hand and uses various sources for the mugs, cups, and saucers in each set. She often adds the imagery and words from Harry Potter onto antique or vintage items which means all the sets are slightly different from each other. I adore her intepretations of the house crests and the sort of rustic look added by her handwriting. Here are a few examples of the Hogwarts sets:







Does this make anyone else want to host a costumed tea party?
