Tea makes the world go round…

I’ve come to the conclusion that it is in fact tea that makes the world go round. Well, ok, maybe not quite, the sun and gravity have a lot to do with it, but tea definitely helps my world go round. As a mummy, my reliance on tea has increased, but really, you don’t need kiddies to rely on tea. Here are 5 reasons why…

1) Home for tea

Firstly, it’s a constant in my life, we always go home for a cup of tea, we always have and always will.

2) Tea?is most definitely needed in certain circumstances:

  • after getting up in the morning, I wouldn’t function otherwise!
  • elevenses
  • going shopping, we’ll usually stop for a cup of tea (or coffee)
  • with a toddler…. need I say more?! Tea and coffee make me function and survive the day! I long for that cup of tea when Toddler H has her nap…. I cling to the hope she will?nap all day for that reason – does that make me a bad mummy?
  • with a baby… it’s a sleep deprived crazyness solver
  • after a long night – see any of the above, or just because I’ve woken for some inexplicable reason and not been?able to sleep for 2 hours despite hubby AND toddler H sleeping soundly the whole time
  • on a cold day
  • on a warm day – I always thought my mum was MAD having tea on holiday or on warm days, but it is refreshing! Try it!!
  • with friends when we’re letting off steam, venting about babies, lack of sleep and putting the world to rights
  • after a bad day at work
  • to get through a bad day at work

3) its perfect for helping to put the world to rights

I know, this kind of links to one of the posts above, but putting the world to rights and having a good old natter is such an important point and outcome of tea, it must have it’s own point too!

4) it’s calming

If anything happens in life, we have a cup of tea. Yes, sometimes it’s a wine or even champagne occasion, but usually tea comes first especially if we might have to drive!

5) it’s a boost

It gives me energy, and not it’s not just the caffeine as even decaf works! It must the the act of just sitting and drinking a nice warm drink

6) it helps me think

  • give me a cup of tea and I’ll solve that problem that’s been bugging you!
  • it helps me blog… it’s amazing the number of blog posts I’ve written or thought of while drinking tea
  • actually it’s amazing the number of blog posts I’ve written about tea! (6 ways to have a hot cup of tea with a baby, tea and crohns disease… I’m sure there are more!)

 

* Please note you may substitute tea for coffee or hot chocolate and sometimes even cake or?biscuits ….

What do you think?

    I think we would get on very well indeed! I love tea..I love the ceremony of making a tea when a friend comes round for example. I mean if they just wanted water they’d be in and out in ten minutes. Right I was debating another one or not (I’m pregnant and on a quota!) but yep, I’m just going to pop the kettle on! #fortheloveofBLOG

    You see, for me it is REAL coffee. I do like tea but it always loses out to coffee…Until someone makes me a cup of tea and then I wonder why I don’t have tea more often!

    P.S. The tea is refreshing on a warm day is something my hubbies parents are always saying…It makes me chuckle because it never makes sense to me.

    Tea is the best. Coffee is also the best. I love them both, and they both have their niche. I love Occupation Mother’s comment above about the ceremony of tea. I used to live in Japan, where they have an actual tea ceremony. A ceremony that pays homage to the greatness of tea. I think we need one here! #KCACOLS

    Oh yes, definitely makes my world go round! Coffee too, and lately I seem to be drinking more coffee than tea but tea has always been my first love. Tea is better before bed (with caffeine, even). It is true that hot tea is refreshing in hot weather, there’s a scientific reason for it, I think something to do with hot drinks making you sweat and therefore cooling you, as far as I remember! #KCACOLS

    I totally agree about tea on a hot day. It seems wrong, but it is really refreshing! #KCACOLS

    For the most part, I’m a coffee drinker, I really need my coffee fix a few times a day! But there are occasions when only a cup of tea will do, there really does seem to be something calming about the act of making a cup of tea. x #KCACOLS

    I am more of a coffee drinker but i do enjoy a nice cup of tea when i am really cold or when i’m blogging. I find tea is my thinking drink. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday x

    I love tea but cant drink caffeine and am always being told decaf tea isn’t as good. I have mine with sugar so its my sneaky sweet fix. I love tea in the evenings when you finally got the kid to bed! Tea and siiiigh…..lovely post #KCACOLS

    My mum is like this with tea! I don’t drink that much really. Maybe one cup a week, sometimes not that. I used to drink lots of coffee, then preferred tea, I switch on which is favourite of the two – probably equal currently. But I don’t drink much of either these days. Coffee I only have if out and about. I’m definitely like this with chocolate though! #KCACOLS

    I completely agree! Both my husband and I love tea! Before I had Dot, I wasn’t that fussed, but I can’t get enough of it now. On average, I must drink at least 3 or 4 cups in a day, if not more!
    I agree with your mum,. Tea is refreshing in a hot day! πŸ™‚

    I have definitely started drinking more tea since moving to the UK seven years ago, but I still prefer hot chocolate or a mocha πŸ™‚ Great post! #KCACOLS
