Looks pretty decent but i think you need stronger lighting compositionally, as it is quite diffuse atm.. The sugar cubes are quite blown-out also..

So where is it? The atmosphere... ;-)

Also, way too clean.

try some volume lighting with slight dust particles in the air.

This is the image with better lighting, some material changes and vignetting...

I like the first version better than the second. I don't think the vignetting is adding anything to the image.

I like the warmth you put into the the light for the second one.
I think instead of vignette maybe make a shadow map like a shadow of trees from the outside poking in.

I see the bubbles in the second jar, I think some more of them and different sizes in both jars will be a nice touch.

Your sugar cubes have to much bump to them.

Your textures are great and fantastic maybe some variation on the flower so they don't look like 3 copies of each other.

The flooring texture of the table or counter is strange, maybe rethink that.

All in all I think with a little spit and polish this will be an amazing still life.

Looking good!

I'd like to see some water stains, fat and oils from touching and grabbing, and steam from the teapot :) (Unless it's supposed to be cold tea)

Right now the teapot looks brand new, nobody ever touched it with bare hands, no drop of water was spilled on it when filling it up.

Still great looking render.

I googled some references to show you what I mean

Water stains:

Fat and oils + steam:
