Q1. What is your name?
Q2. What is the name of your blog or organisation?
Q3. Where are you located in the world?
Brooklyn, NY, USA
Q4. What currently is your favourite drink and why?
Right now I’m into drinking iced matcha lattes- refreshing, cooling and calming while giving a huge boost of energy. I like that matcha makes me more alert but not jittery. It’s perfect for this warmer, humid NYC weather. A cafe near my office does a warm jasmine matcha latte, and I think I need to recreate it as an iced drink.
Q5. Do you change your drinking habits during Spring?
I change my habits a little bit for Spring. I still drink hot tea all year round, even in sweltering temps! But I do enjoy an icy cool tea drink, especially after exercising. It’s quite invigorating. Iced tea is preferable when walking the humid NYC streets.
Q6. Is there a coffee or tea you think others should try?
Well, matcha seems to be all the rage these days, so I’d say folks should try it if they haven’t had it before. But make sure it’s quality matcha!
Q7. If cost wasn’t a factor, where would you like to be right now enjoying a drink?
A quiet, remote beachfront in Hawaii. I love the ocean, and always feel better when I’m near it. Add in a boozy iced tea, and I’d be in heaven!
Q8. Where can people find out more about you?
My tea blog: www.tea-happiness.com. I do tea industry interviews, tasting reviews, NYC area tea shop reviews, and articles on tea culture. I love taking pictures so you can also find me on Instagram: https://instagram.com/tea_happiness. Twitter is https://twitter.com/teaHappiness. Hope to chat with you soon!
