#11 Tea Guru: There's Something About Miriam with Miriam Novalle.
The Big Mouth Pharmacist.
With us today is the lady who brought tea into mainstream culture in the US, owner of the T Salon and High Tea, Miriam Novalle. She has much to say about the quality of tea leaves, how they are farmed and fair trade, how flavors can be sullied by shortcuts in mass production; and she tells us the emotional story of how she created High Tea; along with some interesting side notes on meeting Herb Alpert, having the first non-smoking restaurant in NYC, and serving tea to the first responders at ground zero on 9/11.
