Q1. What is your name?

Laura Burley

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

Laura’s Tea Room

Q3. Where are you located in the world?

London, England

Q4. What currently is your favourite drink and why?

At the moment I am enjoying Fortnum and Mason’s Countess Grey tea, their version of Lady Grey from Twinings.

Countess Grey is perfect for the warm, Spring temperatures. It’s tangy and zingy and has a wonderful orange flavour. It’s both refreshing and satisfying. And it’s perfect for afternoon tea, too.

It has a air of nobility about it and it feels that only your best china will do!

Q5. Do you change your drinking habits during Spring?

I do start to actually. As we head towards the hotter summer months I tend to drink far less black tea as it sits heavily on my stomach when the weather gets hot, so I veer towards green tea and water.

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

Like I said before, Countess Grey from F&M. It’s not any more expensive then Twinings or Whittards and yet it feels like a real luxurious treat.

In addition, I’m also enjoying a really fine Yunnan from Northern Tea Merchants. Smoky, robust and fulfilling.

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

I’m not sure but a really decent quality afternoon tea would be great!

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

I’m not sure if we really can. Both coffee and tea, through companies like Bluebird in Brighton have a hip and modern air about it, so coffee and tea’s are no longer “old people’s” drinks. And yet, drinking is still done to excess.

Ultimately, though, whether a person drinks too much alcohol it down to them, it’s personal choice. Simple as that.

Q9. Where can people find out more about you?
