Tea master (ti 'maes.tr)
1. Tea vendor who wants to sell his tea and wares at a price-value grossly inflated by mysticism and hype;
2. Someone certified by one of numerous, unregulated organizations that purport to teach people about tea for large sums of money;
3. spec. The title of the blog of a French tea drinker living in Taiwan, also given to his various tea teachers;
4. Archaic/obsolete A person who, from a blend of study and experience, knows volumes about a particular genre or genres of tea, and shares his or her wisdom without the biasing motivation of tea or book sales.
