We talk a lot about coffee here at Mugdom, because that’s primarily what people use our mugs for (according to our keyword traffic, anyway), but we don’t want you tea drinkers out there to think we’ve overlooked you.
When I was young, the concept of Afternoon Tea befuddled me. You set aside a specific time of day to drink a beverage? Afternoons were for riding bikes and building forts and learning to cuss. If you got thirsty from any of that, you just snuck a drink from a neighbor’s garden hose.
As I grew older, I started to realize that the afternoon tea was more than having a hot cuppa and a few tiny sandwiches. It was a social occasion, an excuse to get together with friends and family, away from the daily concerns of work or other distractions. It is a comforting routine.
If you enjoy that comfort, check out some of our tea sets. The holidays are rapidly approaching, and we could all use a little break from the craziness.
