What your teacup says about you

I consider food and drink to be just as vital to defining a home as décor. Tabletop is one of my favorite words, possibly passed down genetically by my mother who, God bless her soul, is still buying dishes that tickle her fancy. While I cannot quite embrace stacks of china, I can get obsessed with teacups.

Quite frankly, dear reader, you should have an arsenal of teacups in your cupboard that express every emotion. The morning ritual of putting the kettle on and selecting your brew is based on how you are feeling that day, no? So why not pair your mood with an appropriate tea cup?

Let’s examine for a moment what your teacup says about you…

The monogram

While there is nothing negative about taking ownership over your possessions there is something scary when you threaten the pain of death to anyone who touches your special cup. Organic Assam Breakfast from Two Leaves Tea Company is your favorite.

The classic white

Crisp and to the point, your favorite colors are simple yet bold – like lemonade yellow, cotton candy pink, or a tropical blue. Perky most of the time, you iron your t-shirts and never walk out of the house without earrings. Your tea of choice? White Cucumber from Adagio Teas.
