The struggles faced by devoted lovers of tea

There are many mixed opinions on tea. You either hate it, or you love it to the point where you can’t live without it and spend all day, everyday either drinking or thinking about tea…just us? Any tea addict will recognise all of these struggles. The tea life isn’t easy…

1. Trying to boil the kettle on the sly
Anybody that comes from an entire family of tea lovers will understand this. You reeeally want tea but know that if you boil the kettle the whole gang will hear it and come running down the stairs like a pack of hungry wolves. Instead of simply making one cup of tea like you had originally planned, you end up making five cups of tea, ten slices of toast and eight omelettes. Making tea should always be on the sly…


2. When someone says they don’t like tea
There you are having a laugh with your potential future husband and as you order a cup of tea in a café on your first date he comes out with the line “I don’t like tea.” Deal breaker. Why didn’t he tell you this important detail before arranging to meet up? Say goodbye to your future children that you will never get to meet.


3. Going out with your friends for a night of hard-core drinking and all you want is tea
Nothing worse, the endless shots of tequila will just not fill that void. You feel empty, confused and alone. It’s been four hours since your last cup and all you can do is reminisce about the good times you had together. It’s just like going through the breakup of a long term relationship. Well, you know, kind of…


4. “Why don’t you try switching to green tea?”
Why don’t you try keeping your opinions to yourself?


5. When someone thinks it’s completely okay to use your favourite mug
This is not okay. This will never be okay. We all have about 37 different mugs and each one suits a certain mood. Please enquire before making silly mug choices.
