pour me a cuppa

tea is one of my favorites things in the world. it really is, i drink about five cups a day. when i have my bookshop (which is gonna happen, just you wait and see) i want to have local artists' art on the walls and a corner full of couches and a self-serve tea station stocked with the yummiest teas. one of my favorite pastimes is visiting tea shops (check out this post for more on a certain favorite teahouse of mine). you know, trying new teas, doing some people watching, chatting with friends about how amazing bubble tea is, all that good stuff. lotsa fun times. also, tea happens to not only be incredibly tasty and good for you, but  absolutely beautiful in pictures as well. i had a really fun time looking for photos to put in this post (as any tea-lover would). and i had at least two cups of tea while doing it! ;]

ps-i hope that everyone had an amazing valentine's day!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
