There is no denying thatlife isbetter withtea and my guest this month is also a firm believer of that statement. So much so, that her blog is named just that.Before even beginning her blog Life is Better with Tea, Mary Ann worked as a registered nurse and also started a line of iced teas. She saw the need for better tasting bottled teas and took it as an opportunity to create her own with a secret ingredient many commercially made ones were missing real tea.

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.
