Q1. What is your Name?
Q2. Do you represent a business? If yes, what is the name and your role.
Kakawa Tea – Founder
Q3. Where are you located in the world?
Q4. What is your favourite Summer drink and why?
Iced Coco-Cocoa tea – cold-brewed cocoa tea (my speciality) with coconut water.
Why? It’s the most refreshing drink I’ve ever tried – and not laden with sugar like many iced teas! It’s also wonderfully good for you – cocoa tea gives you a feel good mood lift, a naturally caffeine-free energy boost, and a burst of anti-oxidants; and coconut water is perfect for hydrating on a hot day.
Q5. What is the perfect Summer’s day setting to enjoy the drink?
Late afternoon, on the patio, sitting amongst the flowers.
Q6. Is there a right or wrong way to prepare the drink? i.e. Never drink without ice?
Make sure the tea is properly brewed (which takes around 3-4 hours). Keep it in the fridge and add chilled coconut water. Ice is a bonus! Add a dash of soy milk for a delicious fresh creamy taste.
Q7. Is the presentation of the drink important? i.e. ceremony, type of glass, setting.
I like it in a tall glass. Sometimes with a straw
Q8. Is there a Summer’s day drink that you feel is underrated? If so, why?
Other than iced coco-cocoa tea, obviously… I think chilled Yerba Luisa (lemon verbena) tea is something we should all enjoy more of. It’s a favourite in the Amazon jungle, and does wonders on a hot humid evening to calm and refresh. It also aids digestion and sleep, which is a bonus in the heat.
Q9. Where can people find out more about you? i.e. shop address, Twitter username, website url
