Tea might seem like the ultimate dainty beverage, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. Just take a cue from that storied wrestler, bodyguard, and, yes, motivational speaker of yore: The notorious Mr. T. Ok, so our beloved A Team star didn’t actually create the cute little teapot that bears his famous Mohawked-and-bearded image.

For that, we can thank a designer named Lennymud who sells her wares on Etsy. But the fact that Mr. T and the national drink of England share a common name cannot be denied, and we’re convinced that the link between the two extends to a more existential level. Indeed, we pity the fool who begs to differ.
