Ottawa Tea Festival, I am a festival 🙂

Balcony with a view.

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

I like to experiment and try different things. Of course I hit on favourites that I go back to again and again, but I’m always up to try something new.

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

Yes! Clean tableware is a bare essential. But some extra attention to details can make it special even if it may not change the taste. (Though some glasses change the taste!)

Water doesn’t get as much love as it should. We should all stay hydrated during heat waves!
