The name of the blog comes from a quote from the show “The Mentalist.” It’s one of my favorite shows and the main character, Patrick Jane (played by hottie Simon Baker) is always having a cup of tea. He could be in the middle of a crime scene and he’ll either ask for a cup or head off to the kitchen and fix it himself.  In Season 3, Episode 4 (“Red Carpet Treatment“) Jane had the quote “Tea? It’s like a hug in a cup.”

I couldn’t agree more. A good cup of tea can be very soothing and relaxing. You just get wrapped up in warmth, like a nice hug!
