I know this is not everyone’s dish of tea

William Weld, former Massachusetts governor, uttered this one on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, when he introduced the topic of climate change.  This is a mashup of “not one’s cup of tea” (not one’s preference) and maybe “dish it out” (to dispense something, often verbally)?  Or was the speaker just thinking of “cup and saucer” and got the two confused?  No one knows except Mr. Weld, and perhaps he doesn’t either.  On that note, I think I’ll have a “disha”.  A big thanks to two people who heard this one and sent it in almost simultaneously:  David Stephens and Donna Calvert.  Thanks David and Donna!
