Q4. What is your favourite Autumn drink and why?
My already excessive tea consumption goes through the roof, Autumn is tea weather for me! I love breaking out the roasted oolongs, Yancha, Shou Puerhs, and spicy blends.
Q5. What is the perfect Autumn day setting to enjoy the drink?
I gravitate between filling my travel tea infuser with a favorite tea and find a good place to hike and photograph the beauties of Autumn…and curling up in my fuzzy robe with a good book and many steepings using my gaiwan.
Q6. What contributes to receiving a high quality drink?
It is all about aesthetics to me, if it smells, tastes, and looks pretty chances are I will be happy. A fancy brand, a great age, and history are just icing on the cake.
Q7. What drink do you start your day with and why?
Tea, pretty much always tea. Ok sometimes if I wake up feeling really dried out because I slept with my mouth open I will go for a glass of water, but I almost always want a tea. Usually I go for a Chinese red/black tea or a refreshing green to wake me up. Not going to deny it, usually it takes many cups before I can be considered ‘human.’
Q8. Do you order a different drink whilst travelling?
I do, going on mouth adventures is fun! Usually when I visit a new place the first thing I do is look for a good spot to find tea…and then I find all the local thrift shops…and yep, I make a day out of thrifting and teaing.
