As I grew up everyone I met was a coffee lover. Most blamed “no coffee” for their stress, headaches, and bad moods. My thing all along was a nice cup of tea.To me tea is a symbol of serenity and clear thinking. Experiencing with tea and enjoying it is part of my daily pleasures, it is the time of the day I look forward to and savor. In this selection I referred to Nathaniel and Andrew Lande’s expertise, experience, and reviews to mention the top 10 best of teas.Many of you will be disappointed that Lipton and Twining’s did not make this list.
In 1992, a few people shared a vision that tea could be something more than a Lipton tea bag in a cup; that tea was actually more like fine wine and that consumers might be open to that vision. So started the tea-revolution in the United States. Creative Director, Nancy Bauch led the team to think about a new way to communicate the experience of tea. Founded in 1992, The Republic of Tea sparked a Tea Revolution. Their mission is to see these teas steaming in the cups of men, women and children everywhere, and to emphasize a Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp lifestyle.
