China's Great Teas: A View from the U.S.

This is an exceedingly interesting address that was presented a year or so ago at a tea symposium. Please have a read with your next cup of tea, because it is very intriguing.

First paragraph of the address by Peter Keen:

America is discovering great teas. This is very new. Most Americans are used to either coffee, low quality tea bags, instant teas, powdered green tea, iced tea or herbal teas. The consumption of tea per person in the U.S. is about one tenth that of the big tea-drinking nations, such as Britain, Ireland, Germany, Pakistan and Iraq. That is changing very fast.
