Looking to Join the Tea Industry

Postby teachat » Jun 8th, '05, 18:29

Hi my name is Andrew and I have been marketing different wine brands for the past few years. I have become a true tea lover and would like to market teas as well. As I am learning more and more about this incredible beverage, I am curious about the hot new varieties, trends, types, etc. Preferably, I would like to find brands/types that have not yet hit the mainstream. I was also interested in learning more about the tea trading and commodities end of the business. How is tea bought and sold and distributed? Any ideas or trading/importing companies I should contact?

Any help you could give would be great!!

Tea Magazine

There's a new magazine out called TeaTime that's beautiful and has the most wonderful recipes in it. Found it at Books-A-Million, but I've also seen it at Barnes & Noble and the grocery store.

The current issue has a story about an author who writes mystery novels that are set in a tea room; the owner has a dog named Earl Grey. The reader can find a lot of reference information about teas in addition to the who-done-it story.

Check out the magazine...and try the recipe for chicken salad, lemon tea bread and a great poppy seed cake.

Thanks for the post.

Free advertising is great, isn't it?

As long as it's tea,

what does a tea lover do for a job.

Well, I've heard to be a good tea taster you need to devote 7 years of your life to gain the prerequisite skill. Does years knocking the stuff back count towards this?
Really, I am looking for some sound advice. I am currently reading William H. Uckers tome "All about Tea". I want to continue to enhance my knowledge of tea (especially Chinese tea)
I am moving to Beijing for a year. I wondered if anyone has any clever ideas as to what jobs a totally inexperienced but enthusiastic body can do to enhance their knowlegde of tea. What companies could I contact?

Thanks for any bright ideas!

tea supply

Postby viettea » Aug 11th, '05, 09:52

Dear Andrew,
My name is Hien Nguyen. I share a similar interest as your. I think Vietnamese tea is something this country has not recognize. I'm considering import Vietnamese tea into the US and supply to stores.
VietNam has a strong history of tea and produce variety of tea with highest quality and sell at low prices. Large number of coffee use in the world are now come from VietNam, I think it is time people know about Vietnamese tea. I'm looking for customers as tea companies and tea stores in this country. I have connection with tea producers in VietNam. I can get white tea, green tea, sencha green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and vietnamese tea that noone know yet at a very low prices. Email me if you are interested: vuong_chan_nhan@yahoo.com
