Samovar Ambassadors Nick Bastone and Miles Hischier are 4th year undergraduates at UC Berkeley with a passion for tea and an eagerness to spread the newly evolving tea culture to a younger crowd. Drinking tea isn’t cute anymore. It’s becoming something cool. Something you can pour when hanging out with buddies, something you can do at parties. That’s right, no more tea parties. Kids these days are partying with tea.
