Tea Time

The weather is getting a bit warmer, but as the latest rainstorm drove home, we still have plenty of days where all you want to do is curl up with a comfy blankie, a good book, and a lovely cuppa tea. Whether with friends or alone, it's always tea party time.

Green, black, rooibos, white, oolong, chai, I do adore a good cup of tea. I also covet many mugs, cups and infusers. And lots of tea-inspired clothing.

Here are some tea time treasures I have on my want list.

I don't mind a little weaponry in my teacup. Perfect for those days when you need to prepare to unleash a can of whoop-ass on the world.

 This octopus tea infuser is just too adorable.

Of course, we need some Doctor Who on the list. I've seen Doctor Who teapots, and Doctor Who mugs (I have the disappearing Tardis mug), but this was new to me:

More tea-inspired goodies after the break.

I've wanted this little guy for awhile. I admit it. Yes, I know where the tea leaves go. Yes, my inner twelve year old is still giggling.

I need more octopi in my house. Doesn't everyone?

I really want a Certified Penmonkey mug. If you don't know what that is, then you haven't had the experience that is Chuck Wendig and his advice for writers. You can fix that by heading over to

Of course, can't forget the outfit for your own tea party. If going casual, perhaps this Mad Tea Party shirt.

If you want something in a dress, perhaps:

Like the idea of a "tea" dress but want something a little understated?

Or just something pretty that isn't so on the nose:

I hear the kettle now. Time for my daily dose of serenity in a cup.

What is on your tea party wishlist?

  1. I have the Mr. Tea infuser, courtesy of a boyfriend who knows me very well. And it is adorable and works fairly well, though the holes are a little on the large side so some tea leaves do escape. Worth it for the laughter bonus, though. (And I do kind of covet the TARDIS one, too!)
