22 Things You’ll Only Understand If You’re a Student Who’s Obsessed With Tea
Tea is everything. ☕️
1. You were worried about leaving home purely because your mum makes the best tea ever.
my mum makes such banging cups of tea im going to miss that the most when at uni : (

2. And it’s unlikely you’d ever drink what someone else made because it would probably taste crappy.
They probably put the milk in first. 🙅
3. You know the exact colour your ideal cup needs to be.
I got my tea the perfect shade of delicious this morning and I'm guessing that it's the highlight of the day.

4. And frankly, you’re more proud of making one than getting a 1st in an assignment.
5. Sometimes, you wake up having dreamed of tea.
I had a dream about a really good cup of tea last night.

6. And if you aren’t really a breakfast person, a brew can help you get through the entire day.
7. You can barely imagine getting to a 9am on time without having had a cuppa.
can't function in the morning without a cup of tea or four😴😩☕️

8. Especially when you got severely drunk the previous night.
The amount of tea I drink when I'm hungover is ridiculous

9. In all honesty, you’d be more than happy to stay in with a cuppa and a good book instead of going out clubbing all the time.
A truly drama-free sesh.
10. You’ll probably have a heated discussion with a flatmate over which tea brand is the best.
There are no winners, only people on both sides who will be hurt by words.
Arguing about the best brand of tea with my friend. We have resorted to name calling.

11. And if someone uses your favourite teacup or mug, you feel like committing murder.
Someone has used someone else's favourite mug to make a cup of tea and someone is very angry.

12. Worse still if someone dares to use up the last of the tea and not replace it.
13. You probably have more mugs than any other utensil in your student kitchen.
And you won’t even be embarrassed about it.
money can't buy happiness but it can buy loads of neat mugs

14. You’re always saying “I’ll put the kettle on” when someone comes home with gossip.
Ngl, you sometimes lose focus if it’s really juicy stuff.
15. Then again, tea is great in any situation, really.
Whether someone is happy, sad, angry, or just thirsty, tea solves any problem.
16. Like when you’ve got an essay due in under 24 hours.
You obviously go through copious amounts of tea just to get it written.
17. Or even when you’ve caught the flu and can barely move.
18. At uni campus cafés, you only ever order tea.
Maybe a flavoured one on a special occasion?
19. You’d brew loose leaf tea if it weren’t that little bit more expensive.
But every single penny counts at uni, and thERE’S SO MUCH YOU HAVE TO BUY ALONG WITH IT.
I need a proper tea strainer and tea pot and tea thermometer and also just proper loose-leaf tea itself but I am POOR

20. But at least it’s more convenient to carry around tea bags on your person.
Time to educate your friends in the art of tea 😂
Officially an old British lady.. I carry emergency tea bags in my purse. pic.twitter.com/RW5JjtdGM1
