Kate Middleton: Please join the blogosphere. Red Tag Couture would appreciate this gesture. It’s only Wednesday, Duchess. You have until Friday to decide.
Imagine the fashion inspiration Kate could bring to us commoners if she did a daily outfit post? Not the point of this post, though. Today, we are talking about tea cuppery! It’s important business, you know.
Tea is a delight. The smell & warmth. Elegant, feminine mugs. Delicate cups and saucers. Health benefits. Variety! What’s not to love? Having a cup of tea is as relaxing as it is invigorating. During the week, Juliska Berry and Thread mugs are the way to go. In white. Because white mugs make the tea taste better. A truly perfect mug allows your hand to easily fit inside the handle.
Sit back in your sweatshirt and throw on a statement necklace. Weekend time is fancy time. Use and appreciate your china on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Look for eclectic cups that aren’t too matchy – fashion rules apply to teacupping! The cup and saucer collection should be as unique as the collector.
I’ve been drinking green tea daily since my college days, and have routinized the process. I like a fancy cup on the weekends and something practical (and white) during the week. All these antioxidants I’ve been consuming better make me look 30 when I’m 65!
What’s your caffeine fix? Is anyone as particular about their mug/cup as I am? And while we are on the topic, do you think china is a worthy investment or do you take a more modern approach to purchasing such items?
