Tea, Boring? Blasphemy

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of people outside the world of tea giving me blank stares when I say I’m into tea. To those people I say you are missing so much. Tea cannot easily be described as leaves steeping in hot water, tea isn’t that dull. Use your imagination people.  You are missing out.

Tea to me is so versatile. Tea has limitless possibilities. What can you do with tea?

Here are some exciting things…

1. Obviously drink it.
2. Cook with it.
3. Make fun concoctions using varied ingredients. For example my Lemon English Breakfast Martini.
4. Tea Art
5. Excuses to have tea parties

Most of all, outside of the possibility of coffee I don’t know of any other beverage that brings people together like tea does.  Please explain how that could be boring. Mothers and fathers bond over tea with their children. Friends catch up on old times over cup.  When you drink tea time seems to stand still.  Plus, I can’t think of even one negative thing about tea.  If you think of one please keep it to yourself.  That is how bad information gets out.

Not sure about you but to me tea might just be a magical elixir. Far from boring if you ask me.

How do you combat people who just don’t get the power of tea? Not saying you have to make anyone drink it, though it usually helps for them to better understand your passion but for me I am tired of that look. You know which look I’m talking about.

Fight the good fight my friends. And today that is what really grinds my gears.

Now for a relaxing cup of tea.

    You and I have enough years of blogs combined to show there’s nothing boring about tea.

    I feel your pain! It can definitely be frustrating but I try my best to grin and bear it. Over Christmas I gave a copy of the magazine my article was in to my great aunt. She replied with, “huh, you really do like tea?”. When friends come over the house and see all of my tea stuff, they’ll usually change there tune. I get lots of questions from everyone once they see that there’s more to it than Lipton tea bags.

    There is always a new thing to discover about tea.
    And the right way to do it is one leaf and one people after another.
    Some people will not get it but some will understand it.
