Kombucha

The tea, the myth, the legend...we finally try Kombucha! We had heard so much talk of Kombucha from home brewers, and yet never had tasted this fermented beverage. That all changes in Episode 44, where we delve into what exactly Kombucha tea is, debate how to pronounce SCOBY and generally enjoy something a little different to the usual podcast cuppa.

Grab a brew and join the chats!

This week we play a tasting game with two* teas that taste like dessert.

It has been very warm in the UK (between recording and editing this episode however the weather has returned to rain, that's summer done in England!) and in episode 43 Emma and Jack have a bit of fun tasting teas.

We go on a long tangent about biscuits, generally an episode about yummy things! Pop on the kettle and join in the chats.

*it is up for debate whether one counts as a dessert or not...

This week Emma has a tea and chat with the founder of Daughters of Botany, a company that creates incredibly vibrant and tasty botanical teas! Episode 42 is a fascinating insight in how this company started, it's multi-generational homage, and a peak into how they blend teas.

This was a really fun episode to record, and might give you the excited push to take the first steps on your own creative projects.

Huckleberry

Emma and Jack try huckleberry for the first time, in a tea that gets the chats flowing! This fruity little number was kindly sent all the way from Idaho (huckleberry is the state's national fruit), and in a time where we aren't allowed to travel this taste of the overseas was a joy.

We chat huckleberries (of course!), books and the art of biscuit dunkage in episode 38.

Beautiful Tea

Beautiful is the only word to describe this weeks tea, Mood Indigo by Daughters of Botany. Using the old fashioned postal service and modern day video calls I have a guest outside of my lockdown bubble! The wonderful Nicole Rogers, horticulture enthusiast (the woman owns a genuine greenhouse!) and yoga teacher, joins me to discuss this blue tea delight.
