Spring 2015 Interview – Helen (Tea in the Tub)

Tea in the Tub

Q1. What is your name?


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

Tea in the Tub

Q3. Where are you located in the world?

Melbourne, Australia

Q4. What currently is your favourite drink and why?

Peppermint and green tea. Peppermint wakes me up after a long day fundraising and soothes my stomach and green tea is just awesome in every way so it’s a perfect mix.

Q5. Do you change your drinking habits during Spring?

I make more iced tea when the weather gets warmer. It’s easy, just make a cup of fruity/herbal tea, let it go cold then add cold water and ice. It’s way nicer than chemically sugary squash.

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

Green tea. Many people dislike it because the one and only time they tried it it was bitter. It’s very easy to overbrew green tea. Brew it for uup to 2 minutes and it should have a delicate, light and fresh taste. You can also get it in many flavours. A great one for green tea newbies is tropical green tea. Yum!

Green tea has countless health benefits such as boosting metabolism and has even been linked to preventing certain cancers. If you only ever drink one drink, make it green.

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

I’m currently on a working holiday visa in Aus. Melbourne is pretty nice but it’s almost winter here so it’s getting cold so I’m heading up to Brisbane soon for a bit of warmth. I’m very greedy though when it comes to travelling so I wouldn’t say no if someone offered me return flights home right now so I could enjoy a drink with my family.

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

Alcohol is a personal choice. I had many, many good times at uni involving alcohol and then I stopped drinking for 6 years and also enjoyed myself. Now I drink but very rarely. My top tip would be to drink a pint of water with a paracetamol or 2 after a night out before you go to bed to reduce your hangover in the morning.

Q9. Where can people find out more about you?
