Quali-Tea Time with Rose Glow Tea Room- Christine's cup of Tea
Question #1- You are throwing the tea party of your dream. You can invite five people dead or alive, who do you invite?
I would have a tea party with my mom, who passed away 8 years ago. The other 4 guests would be her granddaughters (my nieces and daughters) who all arrived during those 8 years. I'd want them to meet their Granny and I'd want to see the look on my mom's face when she meets all the beautiful girls who came into our family.
Since that is kind of sad, if I skipped family, also I would want a tea party with 5 of the ancient rulers that were mentioned in Ancient Aliens so I could get some explanations, haha!
Question #2- What tea region would you like to visit?
I would go to South Africa and visit the rooibos-growing regions. I would take in the incredible natural beauty of South Africa, the mind-blowing mountains and coastlines. As for tea, I have always adored rooibos and honeybush, their depth and sweetness with minimal bitterness. I would want to know everything about the plants, the farms, and I would like to bring some precious rooibos teas home.
I will totally go with you!
Question #3- What is your favorite tea while reading a book?
My favorite tea to drink while reading is "Remember Your Floaties" by Happy Turtle Teas!!! This is a strawberry cream pu'erh literature-inspired tea blend based on Stephen King's book "It". I spend a lot of time reading and listening to scary books, especially at night while I clean my house (it works, okay). I have legit gotten the creeps from sipping this tea, and yes that makes me happy. The sweet strawberry flavor floats high above the deep, grimey pu'erh, and the distinction viscerally matches the vibe of Pennywise the Clown, the scariest dang figure in horror (IMO). But it truly tastes delicious, it even has tiny marshmallows and red balloon sprinkles!
What a cool tea blend! I will definitely look that company up.
Question #4- What is your favorite tea pun?
My favorite tea pun is probably immuniTEA. I spent some time researching immunity teas for a YouTube video I was making, and realized the pun was so commonly used among companies that immuniTEA should probably become its own word or category.
Describe your best tea experience.
My best tea experience would be drinking Classic Blend Tetley in Glasgow, Scotland. I was able to visit there in my early 20's when my BFF moved across the sea to attend Glasgow University. For breakfast, we would drink Tetley with milk and sugar, which was so satisfying and soothing. I learned there that tea could compete with coffee. I still find Tetley such a bold, flavorful, easy-to-drink tea.
Your answers were awesome. I definitely want to visit Scotland and drink Tentley with cream and sugar. It sounds like a warm hug. Thank you so much for your time Christine.
