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…
It’s MINE. 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.
Monogram Mug from Anthropologie
The classic white
Dainty, that’s you! 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.
Patterns and pictures
Sprinkled with sass you are drawn to conversational pieces. Flashy is your middle name and drama could be a close second. Your favorite blend is Gunpowder from Adagio Teas.
Harlequin Collection Yellow Ribbons Cup and Saucer from Wedgwood
You’re just as serious about your tea as you once were coffee. Easily taking tea-on-the-go, you take your dedication up a notch by owning a tumbler that boasts a glass filter. Unstoppable, you can steep your tea anywhere. Your blend of choice: A bitter Earl Gray from Harney and Sons.
