Judging is easy. Appreciating is hard. And even seasoned experts have something to learn from tasting teas across a wide range of quality.
Across the world, tea is made in batches. Each batch varies due to the season, soil, elevation and producer. Every batch has its own flavour notes and quality, even within a garden or season, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
At Ahista Tea, we specialize in finding small-batch, progressive teas. We choose from the most talented gardens, from particular elevations. We know the seasonality of tea and which are the premium seasons to buy in. We even go into the detail of the varietals of tea plant used and the making process for the batch. These teas express the flavour of their region and we ensure to find the best, made as a luxury craft, with the same artisan skill as with a family vineyard or a small whisky distillery. - 1 hour ago
