Q4. What is your favourite Summer drink and why?

Seasonal tea from Lovers Leap is idea for the summer. Light cup that is full of flavour and has a crisp finish. Ideal to hot or as a ICE tea.

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

The most ideal setting to enjoy this tea is on a Plantation bungalow lawn with the cool crisp smell of fresh tea in the air with only the sound of nature and a view of the rolling hills of Sri Lanka’s up country.

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

Yes if drinking hot one must use fresh water to boil and brew for at least 3 minutes 5 to have strong. If you plan on enjoying the tea iced one must leave the tea to brew for at least 2 hours and not stir the infusion.

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

Traditional tea cup and saucer is a MUST! NO MUGS!

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

Yes! Seasonal tea from Lovers Leap! It is underrated because many of the examples of lovers leap or Nuwareliya teas from Ceylon are either bought out of season or blended with other origins thus drinkers don’t get to enjoy the true flavour and character of a seasonal Nuwareliya tea.

Q9. Where can people find out more about you? i.e. shop address, Twitter username, website url
