The Art of Tasting

  • Visual- compare the appearance of the tea leaves both wet and dry

  • This is an opportunity to discuss the qualty, vibrant colors and aromas of the tea. Pour a sample for the customer and discuss the following.
  • Cup Color – color of the tea liquor. Aroma -floral, minty, spicy, complex and layered.
  • Taste – describe the flavor. Beginning, middle and end. Complex undertones and subtle notes. Finish tea tasting by giving customer a teabag sample to take home and try.
