Please, tell us who you are.

My name is Margaret and I run an online select shop called Mustikka.

How do you like your tea?

I like to have a cup of hot tea in the morning before taking any food, it helps warming up my body for the day; I also like to take some tea in the late evening, before going to bed, it calms me down. I travel a lot for my work, I often bring NORD-T tea with me to trips since it’s light and easy to carry, also I can make sure I will have the tea I like everyday.

What is your favorite NORD-T blend?

My favorite blend is Barefoot Biking since I like blueberries a lot. I like the smoothness of black tea but also the refreshing sour aftertaste added by blueberries.

What inspires you at the moment?

Being alone. I do like to spend time with family and friends, however, I can only think clearly when I am by myself. So I always try to reserve some time for myself beside the time with others. I often go to cafes or movies by myself when there’s something that needed to be figure out and I would do my thinking during the time; when I’m with others, I enjoy the time being with them.

What would you put in a gift basket?

NORD-T teas are perfect for holiday gifts, kitchen towels or tea infusers can be good addition to the basket. If I need to prepare a bigger gift, I might pair the tea up with a teacup and saucer set.

Please share your best travel tip to Taiwan.

March – June, or November-December should be the best time to travel to Taiwan, don’t ever come in summer, the heat will kill you! And I really recommend Tainan, it’s a nice small town in south Taiwan, it used to be the capital of Taiwan in the ancient times and you can still feel the old glory in the atmosphere. Tainan is perfect for walking tour, excellent local food and friendly people are all around !

What would you like to experience while visiting Finland?

Berry and mushroom picking! Last September, I was in Finland in autumn for the first time and I was so amazed by the mushrooms everywhere, I was so eager to pick them but was warned by people not to since some mushrooms are very poisonous. One day, I have to visit Finland in Autumn again and go into the forests and pick unlimited berries and mushrooms!

Thank you Margaret for the great tips and we will sure to take you for a berry and mushroom harvesting trip next time you visit! You can all send your hello’s to Margaret through our comment box!
