Day 3597 - The Magic of Tea

I believe a cup of tea is the answer to our problems.


Got a problem you can't solve?  Chat about it over tea.
Had a little spat with a friend?  Talk it through over tea.
Separated from your bestie by a huge ocean? Facetime over tea.
Got something you need to get off your chest? Let if fly over tea.
Trying to work out how to cure the world of disease? Brainstorm over tea.
Need to work on diplomatic relations?  Get the world's leaders together over tea.
Lost a loved one? Think happy memories and drink their favourite tea.

There is something magical about tea.

I'm not talking about the power and healing properties of tea from a nutritional point of view, but from a psychological and physical perspective.  The actual act of sitting together over tea.

You need to chat to me about something?  My answer will always be "let's have a cuppa".  Tea grounds us, keeps us present, encourages face-to-face contact and soothes the soul.

It seems I'm not the only one who believes in the magic of tea.


I picked up this little gem from a tea shop recently containing quotes that warm my tea loving heart.






If anyone has actually followed me for the last 10 years you'll know that I have a collection of tea cups.  I used to buy them to match my outfits. True story.

But now my tea cups are more than an accessory. They are a way for me to feel close to the people I love.

This weekend marks a birthday of a loved one who is no longer with us.  This time last year we were celebrating her milestone zero birthday with a family hosted high tea.

On a trip to Sydney prior to the tea party we went to a tea shop and she bought herself the most gorgeous cup and teapot in pinks and rose gold.  It was that purchase that prompted the high tea celebrations.

I recently bought myself something similar so I can keep her by my side at work each day.



To celebrate her birthday I will drink tea.

There is magic in tea.  Don't you agree?

What problems do you solve over a cuppa?

Got any special teacups at your house?

Anyone else believe in the magic of tea?   

It's lovin' life linky time!  What are you lovin' about life this week?

  2. Totally agree. The world would be a better place if there were more tea & scones. I drink my morning tea out of a Villeroy & Bosch china cup with a picture of Lille on it. My girlfriend had it waiting for us when we arrived in Lille last year to visit her. There is magic in tea & I love it that you can use it on this day for this reason. xx

  3. Yes, I'm a believer too. Currently sitting at work doing admin stuff as I sip my mug of tea ahead of another crazy day!

  4. That is a beautiful post filled with beautiful memories and tea cups. Lovely, Leanne, just lovely. I used to enjoy a cup of tea but my mouth has changed its taste and it's strong coffee and or cafe mocha type drinks at home now. I actually "colour match" apple watch bands to my outfits.

    May today's memories bring smiles (and a tear or two) because it has been the worst of times in the past months, I know but you can rise as one of the best through this. Sending a Denyse-sized hug. xxx

  5. What a beautiful, post with a vintage feel. Love your tea cups. I love a good strong cuppa - make mine a Yorkshire tea or TyPhoo please! When I visit England we drink tea about 10 times a day - there's always time for a chat and cuppa!
