The Loose Leaf Tea Company

Q1. What is your Name?

Phil Graham

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

Co-found of The Loose Leaf Tea Company

Q3. Where are you located in the world?

Leeds, Yorkshire, UK.

Q4. What is your favourite Summer drink and why?

You can’t beat an Iced Green Tea Mojito, sat outside with the sun beating down on you. It combines the refreshing taste of green tea with the sharpness of a Mojito. A match made in heaven!

Our favourite recipe is here and we simple throw everything in a cocktail shaker with lots of crushed ice and serve.

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

It has to be in the garden with Friends and Family round. Don’t forget to make enough for everyone though.

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

Always with ice and in an iced glass. The cooler the temperature, the more crisp the taste is.

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

Make a show of making it! Throw the shaker around, pour it from a height. Get everyone’s attention! We also prefer it out of a very thin glass. Don’t ask why… it just tastes better!

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

Sparkling mineral water mixed with fresh lime juice and a spoonful of sugar. I’m not sure if it has a name? People either love it or hate it. It is incredibly refreshing.

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