Acquiring A New Skill

Matt and Emily are back with a tea that’s not a tea, much to the surprise of your favorite hosts. They are drinking PlumDeluxe’s Butterfly Pea Flower, a drink meant to be mixed with lemonade or a cocktail or another type of tea! Matt’s topic this week is acquiring a new skill and he talks all about the skills he’s acquired recently and why it’s important to keep learning things! Listen to this episode to acquire a wonderful conversation!

The Feeling of Getting Home From Work

TeaBD is back! Matt & Emily talk about the feeling of getting home from work—while drinking tea—a great thing to do when you get home from work! Matt’s tea was Lychee Bellini by DAVIDsTEA and was both disappointing and surprising. Emily’s tea was Tea Pig’s Darjeeling Earl Grey but also she had earl grey ice cream recently. Listen to hear this great conversation!

Celeste & Masks

After last week’s brief trip into the multiverse, your hosts Matt & Emily are back to drinking tea and talking undetermined topics! This week, they’re drinking Steep (by Bigelow)’s organic English Breakfast tea and Matt’s mini-topic is the indie videogame Celeste, while Emily’s mini-topic are the all-important masks that hopefully everyone out there is wearing while in public!

Already Bean Decided: Metroid & Medieval Queens

Already Bean Decided is BACK with another episode from these two coffee drinkers. Matt and Emily, like always, have decided each other’s topics and they share their research while exploring some of the ways to drink coffee! Matt’s topic is medieval queens and he shares about Empress Matilda and her escapades. Emily shares about her beloved videogame series, Metroid, and does a GREAT job reporting what she learned during her 10 minutes of research! Listen to this episode to learn more about coffee!


Matt & Emily are back LIVE in Riverside Park. They talk about Matt’s topic, the television show Archer, and continue their conversation about texting. Spoiler alert, it gets contentious. Emily brought Spice Professor’s White Summer white tea for this exhilarating conversation. This tea was purchased to share on the podcast but was it their cup of tea? Listen to find out!

Texting and Phone Calls

Matt & Emily are back in Central Park and podcasting together! Are there police sirens in the background? Of course there are. But more importantly, there’s tea—a mystery Earl Grey they got at a cafe—and a topic of Emily’s choosing (formerly a mystery to Matt): Texting and Phone Calls! Emily defends the much maligned idea of a phone call and her record on texting. Matt also spends way too much time complaining about Quidditch.

Back to School & Slaughterhouse-Five

Boy oh boy are Matt and Emily back with yet another episode of TeaBD. Emily talks about the topic ‘Back to School’ while Matt talks about a book some people read in school, Slaughterhouse-Five. During the conversation your favorite hosts drink Smooth Sailing Mango Black Tea by our friends at Plum Deluxe. Get this tea for yourself by using the VIP code TEABD at and listen to find out if it was their cup of tea.

Goodreads & Flashlights

Matt and Emily are back and talking topics! Emily finds yet another way to talk about reading by discussing the website Goodreads. Matt shares his (mostly negative) thoughts on flashlights. During this illuminating conversation, Matt and Emily drinks Candlelight White Tea from their friends at Plum Deluxe (use the VIP code “teabd” at checkout on their website for 10% off). This tea has notes of grape but is it their cup of tea? As always, listen to find out.


TeaBD is back, live from their favorite place to socially distance, Central Park! Matt’s topic is nominally Splatoon but really Emily forces him to talk about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. During this delightful conversation, Matt and Emily drink Dollar Tea Club’s Swedish Mint green tea, but, spoiler alert, its iced!!! Should Emily play Splatoon? Was the iced tea Matt’s cup of tea? Listen to find out!

Meal Kit Delivery Services

Welcome to another episode of TeaBD (in the Park)! Matt and Emily are joined by special guest hosts Chester and Patrick Mahomes, two dogs that were wandering around the park! Emily talks about meal kit delivery services and what makes a good meal kit. During this park time, Matt and Emily drink Ivy Tea Company’s Green Bae Tea. However, to find out if it is Emily and Matt’s cup of tea, you have to listen to the episode!
