Tea review sites we love

by Niraj Lama August 18, 2014 0 Comments

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 Norman
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 Martin
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!

 

Sororitea Sisters
Two friends based on either coast of the US bound strongly by their love of tea. Their reviews are spot on and are relied upon by many tea drinkers.

 

Teaviews
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.

 

Sara Shacket
Sara is based in NYC and aside from tea reviews she also profiles tea companies and tea places around the city. I have had the fortune of meeting Sara and her lovely family!

 

Rate Tea
Run by Alex Zorach, the website is an ambitious project where teas can be rated by members apart from the main tea reviewers. 

 

Other helpful online forums for tea drinkers:

 

Some of the best tea experts and helpful knowledge in the field can be found in this forum.
Another online tea community that has some great tea reviews and discussions that you can follow and join in. 

 

If you have come across any other review or online tea community that need to be listed please share with us.

The quality of fine tea is dependent on many qualities, with sunlight, soil content, and elevation drastically effecting the finished product. A lesser known factor, however, is the direction a hill slopes while growing tea.

Two things I most love about my job - spending time with customers, and visiting the tea gardens back east. Every time I am driving around the hills where the tea is grown, the beauty of the place makes me feel utterly blessed that I can do this for a living.
