Great podcast about why tea is more than just a beverage

I’ve listened to a few of Mr. Cohen’s podcasts and really liked them.  The podcast about youth and tea culture was a fun interview with a teenage intern at  This one is a discussion about how tea is “not just a beverage but an experience, a practice, a way of being, a way of relating with each other and with the universe.”

I hope you enjoy and would love to hear your feedback!  Cheers

    Thanks for the tip – this is a podcast I’ll definitely be checking out again in the future…
