Savoring life one cup at a time – join me, Colin, on a flavorful journey through the world of tea

Hello there! I’m Colin, the face and spirit behind “Nice Hot Cuppa” – your cozy corner on the internet dedicated to all things tea and coffee. Born and raised in the heart of Scotland, I now find myself embracing the charming landscapes and rich culture of Ireland, a place I proudly call home.

My journey with “Nice Hot Cuppa” began as a personal quest, a way to document my adventures through the world of tea tasting and the simple joy of a well-brewed coffee. It’s more than just a blog for me; it’s a celebration of moments, flavors, and the warmth that a nice hot cuppa brings to our lives.

From Scotland to Ireland, IT to tea leaves

By day, I’m immersed in the world of IT, navigating through codes and digital complexities. This tech-savvy side of me loves the challenge and the ever-evolving nature of the industry. But when the computers power down and the weekend rolls in, I swap my keyboard for a kettle. Building websites is my other passion – it’s where I blend creativity with technology, much like how I blend teas and coffees in my kitchen.

Living in Ireland has only deepened my love for a good cuppa. The Irish, much like the Scots, understand the value of a hot drink and a good chat. This cultural connection has been a huge inspiration for my blog. I explore not just the flavors and aromas of teas and coffees but also the stories and traditions behind them. From the misty hills of Darjeeling to the vibrant coffee culture of Brazil, every post is a journey, and I’m thrilled to bring you along with me.
