Tips on Buying , Brewing, and Storing Tea for the Professional and Non-professional

Tea is now all the rage.  Television and newspapers tout the pleasures and health benefits of drinking tea.  Companies tell you to drink white tea, green tea, oolong tea and flavored tisanes. (By the way, what is a “tisane”?)

Today we will discover the differences among teas and what countries are noted for their tea growing traditions.   Learn what to look for when buying loose tea and tea bags.  Did you know that each tea has its own recipe for brewing in order to bring out its best flavor and aroma?   You will learn methods of properly brewing different teas as well as the correct storage methods to preserve the wonderful taste and aroma.
