I am the founder of Modern Tea.

Q3. Where are you located in the world?

Q4. What is your favourite Summer drink and why?

Last time I played around with iced tea recipes I created a beautifully refreshing iced watermelon green tea. It was delicious. I’m actually getting thirsty just thinking about it!

Q5. What is the perfect Summer’s day setting to enjoy the drink?

Weekend, poolside, banana lounge.

Q6. Is there a right or wrong way to prepare the drink? i.e. Never drink without ice?

All of the flavours work so well together so it’s just a matter of working out a good balance and serving it ice cold.

Q7. Is the presentation of the drink important? i.e. ceremony, type of glass, setting.

I would serve it in a glass jar with a fun straw and a lime wedge.

Q8. Is there a Summer’s day drink that you feel is underrated? If so, why?

Water is very underrated. It’s so easy to forget that we need it to survive and so often do we wait until we’re dehydrated to enjoy it. Silly us.
