    Cool cup of tea

    "Not my cup of tea" or "Not my kind of cup of tea"? Which one is right?

    Re: cup of tea

    The first. In The Mighty Quinn Bob Dylan used the variation 'cup of meat' - I don't know whether that's normal AmE usage, but I've always thought it was just Dylan being Dylan. But 'Not my cup of tea' is very common.

    It means "that is not what I prefer".
