Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a tea monster. I am obsessed with tea and all that comes with it, which means I have lots of teapots, as I use real tea a nd a lovely selection of mugs and cups. So I couldnt let this weeks listography pass me by.
Now I am rather lucky to be married to a fabulous man who brings me a cup of tea every morning in bed before he goes to work and as I am usually still asleep at 6.30am, he brings it in a travel mug, a) so it stays warm and b) so it doesn’t spill if the boys knock it.
My next drink of the day is usually English Breakfast Tea (decaffeinated, as I am like the Duracell Bunny on E with caffeine now, I initially dropped caffeine to aid the absorption of iron). I always use tea leaves so make a pot and then drink it in this lovely extra large tea cup and saucer which was my mums.
After I eat I prefer to have a peppermint tea and love it made from fresh leaves or failing that teapigs lose leave peppermint and I make it in my fab boden cup, which not only has an infuser, but also is insulated to keep things warm whilst it infuses.
When I have tea in the afternoon and evening, I like it out of the Emma Bridgewater Mug that I decorated when visiting her factory on a blog trip a couple of years ago. We all decorated our own and they are in regular use each day.
Finally, I love a hot chocolate or a chai latte and the boys bought me a Big Love Emma Bridgewater Hot chocolate mug for my birthday and it is the perfect size for a large drink.
I am not quite the tea monster that you are, but I do love to drink my tea and coffee out of nice cups. As I collect china, I have an ever changing selection to choose from.
How cool is that Drew bringing you tea in a cup that not only stays hot but is boy proof !

oooh, i LOVE your Bodum cup, off to look if there is a coffee version now. xx
Love all your mugs. I could really do with getting one of those travel cups for while I’m working on my garden. Love the cup that was your Mums…so pretty x
I love your Mum’s cup and saucer.
Your man is lovely! I love your Mum’s cup and saucer and that last one is gorgeous!
Ooo I very love your peppermint tea one. And aren’t you the lucky one getting tea in bed every morning – in a flask mug no less!
What a wonderfully varied selection! I’m not a big tea drinker, but I still love that Boden one with the built-in infuser- lovely!
Love your collection, especially the rose cup and saucer.
