Tepidophobia
17 May

Tepidophobia is the fear of a badly-made cup of tea. Yes, the feeling has a literal word now. It is when someone makes a generous offer of treating you to some freshly -brewed, homemade tea and you feel those butterflies in your stomach, petrified about the consistency, the flavour and even the colour.

 

 

While a lot of individuals feel that this is not a good reason to say no to a warm cup of tea, some staunchly believe that it boils down to “my way or the highway”. It bothers you that even though tea is a common beverage, very few have mastered the art of making the perfect brew.

 

Here are a few signs that you have Tepidophobia:

 

  1. You hesitate to buy restaurant tea, unless a close friend has convinced you that it is the bestseller of the place.
  2. You like a uniform shade of tea wherever you go,
  3. Plain tea without any hint of spice is a big no for you
  4. Sometimes, it’s hard to trust yourself with making tea – what if it tastes mediocre?

 

Tepidophobia

 

It is one of the strangest kinds of phobias identified in the recent times. Having Tepidophobia constantly motivates you to prepare a wonderful cup of tea for yourself and your close ones.
