Tea Puns

ingenuiTEA? personaliTEA? specialTEA?

Anyone had enough of tea puns? I can no longer spell the word trinitea correctly!

Any others you can think of? Any you hate? Any you love?

Any you dare to make up?

Hope to get some responses - I'll chai back later (couldn't resist)

There's a fun thread from February called "words that end with TEA". Lots of punny tea words there!

It's not exactly a pun, but, I loathe, detest and despise the word "cuppa."

It's not even a truncation of the phrase "cup of" - its has the same number of letters, people! What's the point?!?!

Ok, I'm done. Breathe. I'm gonna get a CUP OF tea and calm down. Thanks for allowing me to vent, Amanda.

Sencha mentioned it (wha whaaa), "cuppa" gets on my nerves too. That, and when people say they are well "steeped" in tea knowledge - or that they have "imbibed" themselves with tea history. Give me a break.

Vent Vent Vent!

Yes it is a curse of the tea world...a curse not shared by coffee or soda or juices. Mind you, I am not without sin, having used PersonaliTEA and CreativiTEA...but after I realized how rampant this pun was I have ceased and desisted.

Amen to the "steeped" in overusage

You have to have a certain sense of humor to like tea puns, or puns of any sort. I know that my friends and I LOVE a good pun, or a bad one for that matter.

Please don't get me wrong - I love a good pun.

Thank you so much to everybody for replying to my post - I feel all warm and squishy inside (in a good way).

Lady of the IngenuiTEA duo!

With the latin influence lately, how about "Tea Quiero" (te quiero meaning "I love you" in Spanish)

Literally translated te quiero is actually "i want you"
