Last time, Sophie served tea to a hungry tiger in The Tiger Who Came to Tea, by Judith Kerr; the old wizard's cat Get Well, Good Knight, by Shelley Moore Thomas read with a cup of tea nearby; and Tea Rex attended a tea party in a book of the same name by Molly Idle.

Princess Hyacinth enjoys tea with the boy with the kite in Princess Hyacinth: the Surprising Tale of a Girl who Floated, by Florence Parry Heide with illustrations by Lane Smith.
Can you spot the teapot in This is My House, by Richard Scarry?
