Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!

I’m Stephanie, founder and voice behind Life’s a Cup of Tea!

I’m a former Michigander who currently resides in the Chicago area. My day job (that I do at night) is newspaper design and editing for Chicago Tribune and company publications. I spend my free time tasting teas, caring for my baby, taking walks, reading books, writing things, going on adventures and playing with cats and pup.

I started this blog in 2013 as an excuse to buy and try more teas. It’s grown into a platform for tea reviews, recipes and lifestyle posts, as well as being my little corner of the world where I can share my story.

    I think I’m finally in the groove of going to tea for my favorite hot drink! It’s been especially helpful in our ultra-snowy and cold Michigan winter!
