Join us for a great conversation over beer and tea with John Falco of Lincoln's Beard Brewery. Here are some of the topics we cover: -generalities of beer brewing -competitions, and judgment. -2007 raw puerh from Bo Nan mountain. -Van Gogh and social media influencers -plumbing -Chugg Diner -Unsung Hero: Luis of Wynwood Brewery -Challenges. How to face having multiple projects and challenges -Goal setting -Growth and evolution And then we get a sudden interruption from a wise old man that gives us us advice on how and when to eat. Eat twice per day. Half cooked, and half raw. And no matter what, don't eat between meals. Not even the sugar in coffee. This inter-digestionary period without "food intake" regulates the system. Continuing: -sales and training -inspiration -sour orange -mayonaise -yoohoo

#26 - Tea Snob Cigar Time!


Worlds collide when tea and tobacco come face to face in a en epic confrontation of comemierderia and honest discussion. Join Mike & Mike as we venture into Cigar Snob Magazine HQ at the Bird Road Arts District. We spoke about the corollaries between tea and cigars, and about how best to enjoy both, together. Pairing teas with cigars is something that really can enhance the flavors of each. Being able to smoke with a couple experts and relate it back to tea was a real pleasure. Also, Mike Beltran is pissed off about social media and influencers.

The Creator of Tea Time's Theme Song! Founder of Coo Boo Records, Marc Frost, aka John Albano, is one of Mike Ortiz's best friends. They went to college together and spent way too many hours making music and jamming together. In today's episode, we trace how John made his way from frustrated acting student, through New York's F&B world, to founding Coo Boo Records, a collaborative project including hip hop collaboration "Bonerwolf" and his new, fully original group, "Bigmun and Frost," where he works with John Bigmun to create some of the smoothest friggin' jams you've ever tasted. In fact, Marc Frost himself created our deliciously funky theme song! It's called Bad Avenue. Check them out on Spotify as "Bigmun and Frost."

*Comment towards the ice cream. I grew up in South Miami and the second best, in my opinion, is Whip n' Dip. It's local and they have been making their own ice cream for about 3 generations. I highly recommend you guys check them out.
