The other day someone posted an image on Facebook that said “Can’t we all get Oolong?” Well, that made me laugh, so I shared it, and it made other people laugh, so they ‘liked’ it and shared it, also. It reminded me, too, of a couple articles I did on some tea-themed bumper sticker ideas. And that made me think that there are probably more great ideas out there in the ether for my mind to grab. And indeed there were!
- “Got Tea?” — Okay, okay, a blatant rip off of the “Got milk?” campaign, but hey, the sincerest form of flattery…
- “Proud Parent of a Tea Sommelier” — This one is for you folks with children who followed the call of the leaf and became tea professionals.
- “Tea Is a Steep Business” — And pretty tricky to drink when you’re driving in mountainous areas with steep grades! (Hubby and I found this out first hand recently.)
- “Leaf That Teabag Alone” — Seriously! No teabags even get near my car, let alone my teapot.
- “Kyusu? I Hardly Know You!” — Expect to get a driver or two puckering up and blowing you a kiss as they pass you by after reading this. Don’t worry, they’re just enjoying your bumper sticker!
- “I Mugged My Tea” — Certainly better than getting mugged BY my tea! Just a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor to give your fellow drivers a chuckle so they can stay calm while driving instead of succumbing to the urge to engage in “road rage.”
- “Tea Party Devotee” — Pinky pointing is definitely allowed at this tea party. Just be sure that if you’re the driver, you keep your hands on the wheel instead of on the teacup. Have a designated teacup holder in the front passenger seat. Then, be sure you’re stopped at a red light before the teacup holder passenger holds up the cup for you to take a sip. Or just use a travel mug.
- “If You Can Read This, You’re Close Enough to Pour Me a Cuppa Tea” — Bumper to bumper traffic isn’t just a saying. It’s a physical reality in larger urban areas. My latest visit to Chicago assured me of this. No need to fuss and fume, though, when you can just add a positive spin to things.
- “Go Green (Tea, That Is)” — Green tea was “it,” the main tea around about 5,000 years ago. Then oolongs and black teas came along. And more recently white teas started coming on the market and also some fairly rare yellow teas. (Pu-erhs vary from black to green to white, depending on the specific one.) The trend is back to green tea, which is being hyped for just about every health benefit under the sun. Might as well proclaim your green (tea) status on your bumper!
As always, we advise that you drive safely, don’t giggle too much when you see one of these bumper stickers on the car in front of you, and use a travel mug!
