Continuitea

I’m not really one for bad tea puns, but the title of this blog wrote itself. I originally had a blog, where I ranted. And then I had a tea blog. And after about a dozen posts, I moved my blog to Tea Trade. I used to make videos regularly, and Jackie Davenport of Trade came […]

It’s a Snailvasion!

I’m not one for band wagons. so when I started seeing posts and pictures about ‘tea pets’, I just ignored what is, on the face of it, a silly idea. They are basically little ornamental creatures that lay about your teaware, offering what appears to be very little to the experience. Or so I thought…until… […]

The Jesus Mouse

My long-time online friend Finbarr O’Brien, most notable to most of our readers as the namesake of our Finbarr’s Revenge Irish Breakfast Tea, sent me a link to a story from an Irish Journal. It concerns a spat that has gone viral in that fair country over poor quality tea. The vendor in this case in Marks […]

Badge of Honour

About a month ago, the World Tea Expo was held in Long Beach, California, for the second consecutive year. We were not there. Most readers would assume that the organisers would either (a) fly myself and Lady Devotea to the event, put us up in luxury and shower us with gifts or (b) simply move […]

Fine Words Butter No Parsnips

A small intro, before the main event. I’ve always loved the saying “Fine Words Butter No Parsnips.” On a whim I decided to use it as a blog post title, with no idea what to write about. And then, on another whim, decided to challenge a few dozen other tea bloggers to use the same […]

The Teapot of The Covenant

As I may have mentioned in passing on my 27 squillion tweets, plethora of Facebook rants or even within the hallowed walls of this prestigious blog, I have quite a Shania Twain attitude to religion: It don’t impress me much. Much like Ms. Twain’s grammar, pretty well all religion is questionable. Sure, the Buddhists say a few […]

She and He and Tea

Tea has been caught in the crossfire of a battle that is ostensibly between men and women for hundreds of years now. Why bother, you might ask? You might say “Don’t we have gender equality now? Not only for men and women, but also every variation of gender and sexuality therein. It’s it, like, the […]

Temperance Tantrum: Get Off My Lawn!

As I have remarked before, there is a tea for every emotion, every occasion.  I have many times mentioned those occasions and/or occasions. I drink Lord Petersham* if Downton Abbey is on the TV. Doke Silver Needle (with corn chips on the side) if I have a migraine. 1910* if bacon and early morning conversation […]
