While this blog mainly involves tasting various teas and then writing about them (the torture we put ourselves through), there is some actual work involved. We’re fascinated by tea traditions and culture. Tea is a beverage that’s drunk the world over, but in different ways and for different purposes. So occasionally, we delve into some of these traditions and share our research with you.
Travelling Tea Leaf explores the weird and wonderful world of tea, whether it’s touching on the cultural significance of tea ceremonies performed in different countries, delving into the milk vs. no milk debate, or discussing the health benefits of different brews, we want to learn and educate. That’s why, in addition to posting tea reviews, we also write blog posts about the history and traditions associated with tea around the world. We are, after all the Travelling Tea Leaf, always hunting the globe in search of the very best cup.
