A tea sensation: the first tea bar has opened in Warsaw. Actually it’s just a tea café, run by Dilmah.
Wine and tea: they actually have a lot in common. In the second installment of this seminal article I look at the production process of wine and tea and how possibly they can be similar.
The logistic challenges of moving a tea collection.
8 first flush Darjeelings on the tea table. Some exciting teas, though 2011 seems coarser and chunkier than 2010 for first flush.

Another good tea from Teasmith and another good black tea from Taiwan.
