What Tea means to me- With Louise from Teapigs

RISING OUT OF THE OCEAN BLOG THE MAGIC OF TEA WITH LOUISE FROM TEAPIGS (1)

It’s no secret that I like my coffee but it just doesn’t tug on the heartstrings like a good cup of tea. Tea is a relaxing treat at the end of a long day, a de-stressing symbol of home comforts. It has been bringing people together for years and is in my opinion synonymous with camaraderie.

I’m interested in what makes us Brits so sentimental towards tea; we love the stuff so much that we even introduce it to our children through play and classic literature such as Peter Pan, Alice in wonderland and Winnie the pooh.

We asked Teapigs’ professional tea taster Louise what tea means to her.

Tea features pretty big in my life from first thing in the morning to the end of the day. I am so lucky to have found a job which involves the most amazing natural product, grown in the most exotic locations and gives so many people such great pleasure- ok so it’s not giving us world peace but it’s pretty great stuff.

It certainly had a place in my childhood and my children’s. They realise just as I did that everything stops for tea, it’s what you give people when they come to the house or office and my daughter loves ‘making tea’ for everyone.

Everyone likes tea differently and that’s what makes it so great. I am pretty particular about making tea properly, fresh water, at the correct temperature, brewed properly, allowed to cool-perfect.
