Steep Thoughts

TeaLula in Park Ridge

Staring into the caramel colored brew while dipping the simple tea bag on a tiny string by its paper tag, all that came to mind was, "There must be more to tea than this." Throughout history, the drinking of fine tea has inspired revolutions, colonial expansions, whole economies. Countries have been founded, fought over, and flourished all because of two leaves and a bud. Like great wines, there must be great teas. And, so we set out on a journey to explore and share the world of great tea. Join us on the Steep Thoughts Podcast
