    As I tasted it, I felt as if I was hiking the woods on a dewy spring morning.

    I think @lahikmajoe and I tasted something quite similar in Munich (even if I couldn’t find this taste in my cup).

    Why not?
    Companies? How do you plan to get them update their articles and still keep the neutral feeling to your wiki?

    I don’t get how it is supposed to work.

    @jackie, @Max is saying the same as I am: local people don’t get the good stuff, they get the dust.

    Welcome.

    Before knowing what tea is good to “start”, could you tell us what kind of food/stuff you like? Spicy? Sweet? …

    @jackie This is not Little Red Riding Hood but Tea Red Riding Hood.

    Thanks to her, if I ever go to Edinburgh, I know where I can go to have a cup of tea.

    @VCC Tea You might be right.

    As for the translation, I didn’t have time yet to work on it 🙁 but I look forward to this week-end as I should have enough “free” time to translate this document and post it here.

    If I remember well, he drinks a lot of Earl Grey but in bags (sorry @thedevotea).

    @peter you forgot to say that he had this conversation because he was a kind of dilettante (at least to his father’s eyes).

    A funny thing is that today a colleague of mine offered me a cup of Troika (a Kusmi tea), which is a mix between black teas, bergamot, orange and mandarin orange (If I were in a bad mood, I would say that it is an Earl Grey with orange and mandarin orange 😛 ) and I found the flavour too strong.

    Could it mean that my tastes have changed and that I didn’t notice it?
    Should I worry? 😉

    @peter Point taken and that is if you manage to convince them that tea is not something for old ladies and ill people.

    I really need to take a closer look at these tea parlors.

    @jackie but these are Chinese things and let’s say they tried to hide it while everyone knows about the radioactivity and the Japanese government looked at it.

    I am sure that for these people there are issues more important than a change of a tea recipe.
    But think about it.
    You like something and suddenly the company selling it decide to change it for you (you being the faceless consumer) although most of the times, it might also be to cut costs or to sell it at a higher price.

    What do you do?
    You decide to speak about it and in our modern world, this can create a buzz, which might lead the company to go back to the original.

    Why?
    Because they are afraid of losing buyers.
    When you think about it, if you manage to give the people a good reason to apply this kind of pressure on tea companies and if the world changes because of that, this will be a good thing.
    But educating the people might be the hardest thing.

    “I realize that flavored teas are hugely popular but I’m starting to
    think that one reason flavors are so popular is that most people are
    exposed to such poor black, or green teas that they only really like
    them when the taste of the base tea is masked.”

    Interesting thought.

    Just a question: “pure” one place teas, blends, flavoured teas?

    Except that he asked for the best teas in the world and that I ask for teas “linked” to ports/travels.
