Idiom of the Week

Cup of Tea

Meaning: not your preference; something you do not enjoy

Examples:

  • Action movies aren’t really my cup of tea. I prefer dramas and comedies, to be honest.
  • Let’s not get Chinese food for dinner. It’s not my cup of tea.
  • Rock music really isn’t my cup of tea; it’s too loud. I prefer classical music, like Bach or Mozart.
