Elyse Petersen - Tealet

Q1. What is your Name?

Elyse Petersen

Q2. Do you represent a business? If yes, what is the name and your role.

CEO, Tealet

Q3. Where are you located in the world?

Las Vegas, Nevada

Q4. What is your favourite Summer drink and why?

I like to hot brew tea and leave in the fridge to cool. It’s refreshing and you can still enjoy the sweet subtleties of the tea. We often have friends over for BBQ, so we will make cool cocktails with the tea in the fridge using Tito’s Vodka and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

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

In a friend’s back yard by the pool on a sunny day. Friends around and people just enjoying life.

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

No wrong way to enjoy tea, as long as you enjoy it.

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

For me these things are not very important. Tea is a simple thing, even plastic cups can do the trick.

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

I think that hot tea is extremely underrated during the Summer. People say that they can’t drink hot things when the weather is hot, but I think it can be cooling on the body and spirit.

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