Launching the International Tea Sippers Society with her first weekly podcast, founder, Babette Donaldson, welcomes members with her own story of how tea became more than a beverage. Now a lifestyle and a career, she answers the three questions that will be asked of all the Tea People in coming weeks.

  • What was the crystallizing moment that inspired you to make tea a career?
  • What kind of businesses have you been involved with?
  • What inspires you to stay involved with tea?

By way of explaining her passion, Donaldson includes a recording of one of the children’s songs she wrote for her activity book, Fun With Tea in this podcast recording.

Her other books are, The Emma Lea Books, a series of four pictures books with family teatime themes and The Everything Healthy Tea Book.
