I have a slight obsession with tea. It started in my teens, when I decided that I thought coffee was disgusting, but still needed a little jolt to get me going in the morning. So I opted for green tea. I now love coffee, but the obsession with tea has prevailed.

I have also been a huge fan of Harney & Sons as a brand AND for their tea flavors for many years. Even before I moved to NYC, I would make a trip to the Harney & Sons showroom in Soho, and their store and restaurant in Millerton, NY. That’s why, when Harney & Sons reached out to team LMP about participating in a Tea Party video shoot for their #ThisIsTea campaign, I was quick to jump at the opportunity.
On the day of the shoot, I trekked to Brooklyn to the cutest little house called “The Love Shack”, and after hair & makeup, spent the whole day shooting a video all about our epic tea party. I met some other incredible influencers from NYC, and got to sample some pretty delicious tea and tea party snacks in the process.
The people from Harney & Sons interviewed me about what tea means to me, and I explained that when I studied abroad in England, it was a favorite activity of mine to go to this cute little tea room in Camden Town to sample the tea and read, for hours. Every time I drink some delicious tea I think back to studying abroad and how I had the time of my life! You can see my whole interview here:
