Time for Tea – our monthly chat with someone who cares about tea – this time it’s with Jo Hodson from including cake.com blog

1.What is your favourite tea to set you up for the day first thing in the morning?

I’ve always been a big fan of a slice of fresh lemon in warm water but when I want more of a boost I choose a tea instead- a green tea infused with mint or lemon fits the bill perfectly.

2. What is your favourite tea to relax you in the afternoon?

My afternoon and after dinner choice for tea is nearly always peppermint (or a triple mint combo!) I love mint tea and could drink it forever!!

3. What do you like best about Steenbergs teas?

I have only recently started drinking loose teas and I love the choices Steenbergs offers, in both traditional and more unique flavours, as well as the fact they are all organic which is very important to me.

4. Which Steenbergs tea would you most like to try and why?

I love the sound of the Happy Hippy herbal tea! The name makes me smile and the ingredients sounds great- offering a nice change from mint once in a while! I imagine drinking it late morning with a one of my healthy treats to nibble on.

Steenbergs organc happy hippy herbal tea – a delcious blend of flowers and mint.

5. Who would you most like to have a cup of tea with and why?

Oooh this is a tough one. For me tea drinking is a mindful process that centres you in the present. I have a tendency to rush around so much in life and tea really helps me slow down and practice mindfulness in those few moments of sipping from a hot mug. Therefore my ideal tea partner would be someone who could help deepen my spiritual awareness, maybe someone like Deepak Chopra.

1.      What is your favourite tea to set you up for the day first thing in the morning?

I am an afternoon tea type of person – I drink coffee in the morning – but occasionally I’ll have a coconut, banana and matcha smoothie for breakfast.

2. What is your favourite tea to relax you in the afternoon?

It depends – I always drink my tea without milk and usually choose something light – Japanese, Chinese greens and whites.  I always use my Emma Bridgewater teapot, silver tea strainer and use a china mug.

3. What do you like best about Steenbergs teas?

The variety and quality! And that I know that they are organic and FairTrade, or traded fairly

4. Which Steenbergs tea would you most like to try and why?

Steenbergs white tea stars – part of the Steenbergs flowering tea.

The white tea stars – they look adorable – or any of the flowering teas.

5. Who would you most like to have a cup of tea with and why?

Skye Gyngell – who is my favourite chef and writer by far.  I had the most amazing meal at Petersham Nurseries about 6 years ago and can still clearly remember her amazing salt cod.  Her flavour combinations are wonderful, I want to cook everything from her cookbooks.
