18/03: Tea for dump

Do we got a tea that was taken off from the shelf. Surely you bet.

I am tasting it right now, out of curiosity.

It was a white pekoe silver needle I bought 3 years ago, really it's a light green tea. We did not have it sold within a year - it meant its life was expired, so it was removed from our webshop.

Well, this tea is so much like a tea I used to taste at a airplane or a restaurant. No offending, most so called 'Green Tea Teabag' nowadays sold at most grocery stores tasted just like it. You can image the tea drank by American majority is such a bad being, no wonder people were turned off, they would go Starbuck coffee for a decent beverage.

Likewise, this type of 'expired' tea gives people a bad impression for a tea, so as to stop them to explore more teas.

Such tea should go to a dump! I, for one, would never order a tea at a airplane or a restaurant, it's always bad.

On the other hand, our 2009 Yunnan Premium Silver Thread Tea is tasted just fine, although it's about 2 years old. Why? I think it was made differently, the most important part was that it's sun-dried, just like a green Pu-erh tea, so it would keep its taste the better and the longer.

Comments made

Thanks for this and the previous clarification on mediocre tea. In America, one should really question the quality of most anything in the average grocery store-- even pricier items. Tea is an excellent example. The country is just way too big and the supply demand for corporation stores too high; quantity seems to reign over quality.

People ask me were I get my tea and I say, from a guy in Indiana who visits the tea villages twice a year. He has a great website.
Oh by the way, I noticed a clean new website design.
