Q4. Do you have a favourite Valentine’s Day drink?
As much as I’d like to say some kind of tea, Valentine’s Day is all about the wine! Big red wines, the vegetal, earthy, dirty, definitely-not-a-fruit-bomb wines. The kind of wine that surprises people who aren’t into wine … yet.
Q5. What is your favourite drink during the Winter?
Tea! Particularly ripe puerh and roasted oolongs. Winter is the season for darker teas with deeper flavors — puerh when I’m looking for rich and savory, oolongs when I’m in the mood for something a little more fresh and floral.

Getting tea drunk with my best friend and partner in our tea buying club. It doesn’t matter where, or when, or how — hell, it doesn’t really matter if it’s particularly good tea — we just have a great time when we drink together. Unfortunately we live on opposite sides of the world, so it’s a rare occasion …
Q7. What is usually your last drink of the day?
One of the samples from our tea club. It’s a great way to unwind, refocus after a day at work, and try something new.
