Here is a list of our favorite US-based tea reviewers.
Thanks to their hard work and indefatigable enthusiasm for tea, they have not only helped tea vendors like us find new customers but also helped spread the knowledge of tea. We invite you to go through the reviews of different kinds of tea by these wonderful reviewers. There is so much you will learn!
Geoff is funny and self-deprecating. He is prolific with his pen and has an acute nose – catching all the subtle nuances in a cup of tea. His reviews are informative and comes with generous doses of his humor.
Nicole is a sweet person but can get pretty stern when it comes to tea. She admittedly drinks a pitcher tea as her night-cap (slight exaggeration on my part) and can review a whole flight of tea in one sitting!
A collection of tea reviewers that has over the years reviewed perhaps every tea under the sun! One of the oldest tea review blogs in the US, with some of the best and accurate tea reviews to be found.
In the Teagirl of the Hummingbird Lane, New York Times best selling novelist, Lisa See, pairs an epic Chinese tale of tragedy and triumph with one of the most intriguing type of tea, puerh. Even if you are not a tea drinker the story is compelling; but if you are one, then the pleasure of this book is definitely multi-layered.
We are happy to announce the arrival of some exceptional second flush teas from the organic tea estate of Jun Chiyabari, Nepal. We have some rare offerings - hand-crafted micro-batches - that won't disappoint.
We have heard the ominous words from Darjeeling – there is going to be no second flush (summer harvest) this year. We were hoping hard that somehow the political troubles that have engulfed Darjeeling since early June would ease off and second flush production would resume. But last week we heard from our partner tea gardens in Darjeeling and they gave us the dreaded news.
