I’m Tea-Total

So anyone that knows me knows that I am a bit of a fan of a cup of tea. A recent tweet I wrote got me thinking of all the words that you can incorporate the word tea into to give them new meanings. So here is a dictionary, (of sorts!), dedicated to the steaming brown stuff. Oh wait!! Erm, dedicated to that British institution! That sounds a bit better!! 😀

Tea me

Oooh I do love a good cuppa!

Tea-fill – To replenish ones’ cup of the good stuff.

Tea-total – When all you drink is tea. (Yes, even in a pub, much to the barman’s annoyance!)

Tea-nager – When you get a strop on because you need a cup of tea.

Tea-tering – When you put your mug down on the corner of a magazine.

Tea-cher – When you show someone how to make a cup of tea ‘your way’. (Properly! 😉 )

Tea-se – When someone suggests putting the kettle on. Then doesn’t!

Tea-cake – How tea should always be presented, in conjunction with a slab of cakey goodness.

Tea-k – The colour some heathens like their tea. 😉

Tea-pee – When you have had a few too many cups of tea.

Tea-vee – My favourite combination of an evening!

Am I the only one this keen on tea?? Where is the weirdest place you’ve asked for/drank a cuppa?

    Tea Potty – when someone can’t function without a cuppa 🙂 I’m trying to think of a weird place.. I don’t think I have. I haven’t actually had one today… off to get one now. Will compliment my millionaire shortbread. Cheers!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever had tea in a weird place, but I used to carry my own tea bags in my handbag when I had to travel for work, since I’m a tea-ny bit picky about my tea (see what I did there?).

    The best cup of tea I’ve ever had is after both births – when the midwife brings you a pot and some toast. Bliss! #passthesauce

    Love this! I once did a presentation for a public speaking course and I chose tea as my subject. Stand up of the love of tea! Great new words for my vocabulary, thanks! #passthesauce

    What a totally tea-rific post you wrote. I’m here all week folks! I loved it 🙂 #passthesauce

    Ha ha, love this. Mother suffers greatly from Tea-pee. When she was pregnant with me, she went off tea dramatically and she was devastated – she missed it greatly, more so than she did wine. And that’s saying something….#chucklemums

    Haha I’m always dying for a tea-pee.
    I’ve had four cups already today. Tea riffic!

    Priori-tea – when you should have left for the school run but you haven’t finished your first cuppa of the day! 🙂 #passthesauce

    Tea – cake just the best combination ever! Might I please add Tea – shirt. Which is what I end up wearing if I try to drink the good stuff around my two climbing and very bouncy offspring! (Tepid of course).
    Thanks for linking up with #passthesauce x

    I love coffee more than tea, but the experiences are similar!

    brilliant! teanager – inspired! I’m a little sad as I used to be the hugest teapot but went and did one of these ridiculous detox’s last Easter where I had to stop all tea, coffee and wine – I’ve never been able to drink tea since – just don’t like the ease – so so bizarre as I was a real 5-6 cups a day minimum – all very odd – wine no problem though – funny that! #passthesauce

    Tea is essential at Pudding HQ! I like it best in the bath with the door shut whilst I listen to Mr Puddimg slowly lose control of the dogs and children #chucklemums

    I love tea too, but my house is full of tea-sers that constantly need tea-ching how to make a decent cuppa. You’ve now got me fancying a tea-cake except we’ve got no cake!

    Tea-cake is deffo my fave. Thanks so much for linking! Hope to see you next week 😀 #chucklemums

    Haha – brilliant! Tea-nager is my favourite! #chucklemums
