Every tea cup has a story to tell. What would your tea cup tell about your flavor preferences, habits or favorite person to share teatime with? Thanks to my partnership with the Tea Council of the USA, I’m sharing thoughts on my tea cup would tell along with a lovely giveaway… read on!
My cup of tea would immediately convey that I prefer fruit flavors and/or a bold and full-bodied blend. This beautiful cup of warm goodness would also likely tell you that I tend to actually drink teas that are not teas! Herbal teas (also referred to as Tisanes) are typcially “my cup o’ tea,” primarily because they are generally naturally decaffeinated and because I can even grow my own for some super fresh brews.
I really have yet to meet a tea I haven’t like, though. From chai tea to iced tea to matcha tea to bubble tea, I enjoy them all. Did you know that black tea is the most commonly consumed tea in the world? It’s often the highest in caffeine, so I reserve this tea for morning breaks only.
You would also find that I like to indulge in tea, iced and hot, throughout the day and when dining out. My absolutely favorite social tea is a fresh pot of Oolong Tea from our local oriental restaurant. It’s always served in a special ceramic pot with plenty to share during a long lunch with great conversation!
