Emma Ann Robertson is a graphic designer, blogger and astounding knitter based in Los Angeles. I'm not sure how I found her work, but since first glimpse, I've been a fan. This gal has such a refined aesthetic -- she knows how to make simple look good, which is quite a feat in my mind! In many of her designs, Emma incorporates rubber stamps, another aspect of her I work I adore. I am honored to have Emma over here for a cuppa, I hope to do a real-life version and share a pot the next time I'm in SoCal.

What is your favorite type of tea and how do you take it? My favorite type of tea is black - Earl Grey really does it for me.  Today I am drinking a blend of Earl Grey with Italian bergamot oil.  This morning, I put in a tiny pinch of brown sugar!

How does tea punctuate your day? I'm not a morning person - the majority of the time I wake in a flurry instantly overwhelmed.  Taking the time to make tea in the morning allows me to slowly ( key word ) adjust and prepare for the day.

My tea accompaniment of choice is: This morning I made a banana smoothie - It's my favorite treat when I have a few bananas that are about to go bad.

I have a confession - lately I have been listening to nature sounds in the morning & before I hit the hay. You know... rain, the ocean, etc. haha! . . . is on when I'm having tea.

I first started drinking tea when . . .
I realized how delicious it is.

My dream tea party would include . . . Some sun brewed tea over ice with lemon, a view of the ocean, a beautiful blanket to sit on, and good company.

When I sip from my tea cup, I . . . Focus on the yummy flavors.


  1. This is such a fantastic series. I agree with Emma's dream tea party!
