Outdoor Isolation - Jo Rodway
A while back East Forged was part of subscription box with a difference - Outdoor Isolation, Australia's first adventure subscription box. After having a chat with the founder, Jo Rodway, we knew we had to have a chat with her and her inspos in life. Enjoy!
Finding truth in a sea of misinformation about women's health
Recently, at a local Queensland market, Kym had an fun chat with a clinical nutritionist called Meg. Lucky for us, she is coming on board for a series of blogs about her passion and area of study, women's health. As a women led business and mothers, we understand the challenges of those first few years of motherhood and well, we think tea is great support during this time.
Mini Goats. Devils. Conservationist. | Interview with Kylie
You absolutely blew us away when you reached out and told us not only that you had supported our Kickstarter campaign but you were coming to The Melbourne Tea Festival (2018) and would drop by to see us! We would love to know how you discovered East Forged and what it was that appealed the most to you?
High Tea. Sweets. Foodie. | Interview with Frankiie
We spoke to Frankiie Lotho also known as @frankiieshungrytummy who is a keen supporter of East Forged and shares her enthusiasm for food and beverage experiences together with her love for snack exchanges.
Cool. Calm. Calamansi | Interview with Joanna
For anyone that has heard us talk about our White Tea & Calamansi non-alcoholic drink, you know that this was not the first flavour combination we had in mind. We had started using the humble cumquat/kumquat, which turned out to be our first deviation as we couldn’t find commercial quantities. Luckily, we were introduced to a close family member, calamansi and never looked back.
Drink. Dance. Delight. | Amy Masson
As a startup tea drinks business, East Forged, we have made many call-outs for volunteers and are so grateful and fortunate to always receive. Last year,we wanted to create some momentum for the launch of our brand and Kickstarter campaign and in doing so, participated in the Tea Festivals Australia events in Melbourne and Sydney. We called for volunteers to support us on the day and the universe introduced us to this all-round incredible human, Amy Masson or @amyli888 on Instagram.
