The Quali-Tea Time Podcast: MA's Founders Talk Tea, Travel & Climate Change

Posted by Matcha Alternatives

At the start of December 2020 we were lucky enough to be guests on the new Quali-Tea Time Podcast started by Tori of the tea blog Siply Tealicious.

During our hour-long chat, we talk about how we, Elizabeth & Vientiene...

    • First fell in love with tea,
    • How living in London and Madrid helped deepen our tea knowledge
    • How we became permanent travelers (or, "location independent digital nomads" for the pedantic!) to explore different tea destinations over the past four years. 

The second half dives in to how and why:

    • MatchaAlternatives.com is going fully carbon positive in 2021
    • Why we are on this mission
    • What tea and its carbon footprint has to do with climate change.

So brew a hot mug of yummy tea and escape the last days of 2020!

A Note from Elizabeth & Vientiene...

If you need something to drink while listening to our dulcet tones wax lyrical about tea...try these!

  • Vien's favorite: Classy Earl Grey Rooibos, a calming yet fresh tea ideal for tea time (also, caffeine free so you can drink a whole lot in the evening)
  • Elizabeth's favorite: Mango Punch Rooibos, a quick trip in a teapot to a peaceful tropical island
  • Our favorite in the morning: Hint of Apricot White Tea, like a sip of summer in bleak mid-winter
