This past Monday may have been National Coffee Day, but this past weekend, Instagram’s weekend hashtag project was all about tea (#WHPteatime). Which is extremely exciting for a tea fanatic like me. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to participate, but I’ve loved browsing through some of the submissions (people get so creative on Instagram!). You can see Instagram’s top picks here (and also view all the submissions here), but here are a few of my favorites:
“From the preparation and pouring of the tea to the surroundings, company and conversation, many elements make up the ritual of teatime. Bring the elements of those rituals together and capture the moment through video. For photos, seek out soft window light, spend time arranging the details of your table and explore different angles as you shoot. Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment. Get dressed up and stage a tea party somewhere unexpected, unearth vintage tea cups in a thrift store and let your caffeine-fueled creativity run wild.”
Are you a tea drinker too? If so, what’s your favorite tea? I’m personally a fan of Chamomile (sometimes when I feel like getting fancy, I’ll put lavender in it). Oh and I love fruity teas like Hibiscus tea too. But let’s face it: I love allllllll tea.
