When it comes to tea, many countries will often specialize in certain types. Japan offers sencha. China offers a wealth of its own green teas. India perfected black tea. But what happens when another country attempts to make another's tea? Can this truly happen? And if so, what does that mean for a tea's identity? All this and more in this week's World Tea Podcast. Many thanks to for sponsoring this episode. Be sure to get in and subscribe and save on their mystery teas and factory direct matcha for some serious savings.
