Spring 2015 Interview – Erica Teets (Baron’s Tea)

Baron's Tea

Q1. What is your name?

Erica Teets

Q2. What is the name of your blog or organisation?


Q3. Where are you located in the world?

Florida Panhandle

Q4. What currently is your favourite drink and why?

My favorite drink right now is hot Creme Brulee Puerh Tea. I like it in the morning because it has coffee bits and caramel flavoring. It brews very strong and it is good with evaporated milk and sugar. I like all of the Puerh teas, and they are supposed to improve the lipids in your blood. In the evening I drink Young Puerh. A lot of people are turned off to Puerh teas because they have a unique smell – kind of musty due to fermentation in a damp dark environment for many years. However the taste is not what you would expect from the smell!

Q5. Do you change your drinking habits during Spring?

NO. Even in hot weather I drink hot tea. A lot of customers in the Florida Panhandle drink iced tea in the hot summer (which is like half the year almost) and we sell teas that are great iced. But I am not a big fan of iced tea – even when you brew it strong it gets watered down. I guess I like strong tea!

Q6. Is there a coffee or tea you think others should try?

Of course —- seeing my comments above —– try a Puerh tea!

Q7. If cost wasn’t a factor, where would you like to be right now enjoying a drink?

No question – anywhere in Japan.

Q8. What do you think should be done to stop people from drinking too much alcohol?

Encourage them to participate in support groups and make support groups more available. There is great strength in numbers.

Q9. Where can people find out more about you?
