And for a hundred visions and revisions, before the taking of a toast and tea

I think it's more than crystal clear I am big on coffee and well-made espresso drinks, but I love the other half of caffeinated hot drinks almost just as much. Tea is as comforting as it is invigorating. I will have 5-6 cups of tea a day but I can't do the same with coffee. My top picks are jasmine (almost always go with this after a giant dinner), genmaicha (for pretty much any time of the day after morning), and earl grey (I especially like this with my sweets), but I enjoy some mint or roobois every now and then. I am, however, convinced everything tastes good when you drink it from a delicate little double-walled glass tea cup like this one.

Pinkies up, everyone!


  1. Tea and a slice. Great idea, have to procure some.

  2. Nice Alice... I love Earl Grey any time I want to pick up a book or just chill.
    Tea anytime of the day and coffee for the boost/bum-kick to start the brain.

  3. I love coffee (as long as it's not instant) & tea too....I mostly drink english breakfast or chai, or tulsi tea...

    & a nice cup definitely makes a difference :)

  4. Tea is the best, Lady Grey and Simply tea are two of my favourites.

  5. Most definitely, I love tea more than coffee! When I transitioned to loose leaf teas, I was all about the vanilla roobois. Pour in some frothed milk with a little bit of honey - mmm, perfection!
