Goomtee Grand Reserve Spring Tea First Flush 2014 from Darjeeling Tea Lovers
12:00 pm , July 22 , 2014
Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.
One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate. So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.
We try to be as impartial as we can. We do have our favorites. We are human. But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.
You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea. But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!
What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
