Tea has led to many elegant ceremonies around the world. But we have to say that professional tea tasting is not one of them. This particular ritual involves slurping in the tea as loudly as you can. Slooshing it around your gums before firing a well-aimed jet into a spittoon!
At Tetley, our experts may taste anything up to a thousand different teas in a day, from 10,000 estates in 35 countries. The taster is looking for flavour, body and colour, using their own lingo when it comes to a tea's 'zing' (its character) and 'sparkle' (how it looks). The skill of our senior blenders means that you will also get the cup of Tetley that you love.
Have a look at the movie to see a century of 'slurping' in action, or give it a go yourself, its not as easy as it looks.
