Two things that I didn't really need more of: tea and mugs. Guess what I got? My friend Erica told me about the sale Homegoods had on a bunch of cat mugs, so I had to check it out. I decided upon this mug, because it had a cat with glasses that looks exactly like [...]
If you've been following Life's a Cup of Tea for a while, you'll know I'm a big chai lover. I love the spiciness. I first had chai tea in latte form back in the day, but I like drinking it plain most. I've had a lot of different chai teas, but I recently stumbled upon [...]

My go-to is the endangered species chocolate, [...]
Nobody likes being sick. The sniffles, the achy feelings and not being able to do what you'd normally do. But by taking care of yourself, you can make it through and feel better soon. This week, this was my life. But when I don't feel good, some things help me feel a little better. Keeping [...]
Happy new year to all! Ringing in the first few days with a major cold, but fortunately I got a lot of great gifts for Christmas that will help. This week I will put up a reflection video about the past year, but I also want to talk more about the present, and my goal [...]
I finally posted another Youtube video (I know, you've probably been waiting on the edge of your seat for it) — featuring some of my favorite holiday bagged teas and the Christmas/wintry mugs I love to drink them out of. Here's a quick rundown of them (but you should check out my video below to learn [...]
