This week Talking Tea is back in Philadelphia to chat with Rebecca Goldschmidt of Philly’s Random Tea Room & Curiosity Shop, one of the most eclectic tea shops we’ve encountered on our tea journeys to date. Rebecca talks with us about her own path of tea and her aim of providing a space for health and well-being, which come together to create the unique tea environment that is the Random Tea Room.
Rebecca also gives us a short overview of gong fu cha, one of the various ways tea is prepared at Random.
More on the Random Tea Room & Curiosity Shop, including a menu of teas, an online store and social media links, can be found at its website, http://therandomtearoom.com.
Talking Tea is produced and hosted by Ken Cohen. You can follow Ken on Twitter @kensvoiceken.
