An important aspect of being an entrepreneur is staying up-to-date on trends in your industry. The tea industry is currently experiencing a surge in product innovation so I must stay on top of new ways to steep teas, create tea blends and serve teas. The Coffee and Tea Festival NYC (Brooklyn) was a perfect place to do just that! I learned so much and got to hang out with one of my favorite people, craftor extraordinaire Linda Sim. We had a blast while getting totally buzzed on cool new beverages.
