After doing a few how to videos, I thought that it was time to return to doing interviews on my podcast. On this month’s episode Rosa Li, founder of +Rosali Tea, a new tea subscription service. She shared how she first became interested in tea and her experience launching her company through Kickstarter. I’ll be writing about some her teas in the near future. As always, let me know if there is anything related to tea that you’d like to see on a podcast episode! I’ll try my best to make it happen. 🙂
I hear from so many people that they don’t want to get into tea because it requires specialized equipment. The truth is that all you need is a glass or a bowl that you probably already have in your kitchen cabinet. Do you have a favorite tea that you like to drink this way? Let me know about it in the comments!
One of the most common requests that I receive for podcast episodes is how to make matcha. It can definitely be tricky when you are first starting out. For this month’s episode I did a quick little guide showing how to make a perfect bowl as well as some techniques to help prevent clumps. There were some lighting issues but I hope that you all enjoy it anyway. 🙂
There’s been a ton of buzz in the tea world about the samples that +Tea Ave sent out, including these beautiful aroma cup sets. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to show you all how to use them. I’m giving away a prize pack that includes: -Tea Ave tote bag -3 oolong samples -Aroma cup set To enter, just leave a comment letting me know what you’d like to see in future videos!
Pronouncing Chinese tea words can be nerve wracking for many tea drinkers. Pu’er? Dan Cong? Yixing? Some of these sounds don’t even exist in the English language! +Michael J. Coffey and +Eric Scott lend their expertise as we discuss some of the most commonly mispronounced Chinese tea words. Is there a word that we missed? Let us know about it in the comments!
I’m determined to stay on top of the podcast in 2015 so I’m publishing January’s episode just in the nick of time. A few of you have asked me about how to make a chai latte. In my newest podcast episode, I show a method that I’ve been using for years. It’s relatively foolproof so don’t like the stovetop part scare you! In case you’d like to get your hands on the chai that I used in the video, check out my review of Yogic Chai Original Masala Chai. Don’t forget to subscribe in iTunes! I’d love it if you could take the time to leave a review of the podcast there 🙂
