Steve McCurry captures reoccurring cultural themes with this tea-drinking photography series. The photographer likes to travel and take note of similarities or patterns he notices around the world and this particular theme is one many people can relate to -- a cup of tea!

For this tea-drinking photography series titled 'The World In Your Cup,' photographer Steve McCurry put together a strong collection of images that feature people drinking tea. He captured people from Pakistan to Tibet and many other countries all sharing something in common.

In most cases, the images depict people pouring themselves a cup of caffeine in rather peculiar scenarios -- like standing on the side of a train or hiking through the jungle -- but in a few photographs, the people are simply enjoying tea in a cafe. This contrast shows the cultural theme that is apparent all over the world.
