BBC podcast on speciality tea

Might be UK only but figured some might want a listen.

The guy from Jingtea, UK, is interviewed.

They've changed the program at that link. Can we access the one you cited?

It's a good podcast, but not really just about the UK. The tips on buying quality tea are useful here in the US too, especially to newbies.

I was in the supermarket yesterday, and along with the PG Tips regular, was PG Tips Special Blend. The label indicates Ceylon and Kenyan tea, so they added some Ceylon to the lower grade Kenyan. It's still partly Kenyan , don't know the percentage, and it's still dust. But as he said, the supermarket tea buyer is not educated in teas.

It was quite interesting. By "UK only" I was thinking that those outwith the UK might not be able to access it via the BBC link, not that it wouldn't be relevant to them. Glad that does not appear to be the case.

Proinsias--your location is "on the couch" Are you sipping tea while there, or lying down? :lol:

At the moment I'm lying on the couch, with a laptop on my lap, playing Call of Duty on xbox live and sipping some tgy.

I've got all bases covered, aside from maybe the zen one.
