Learning New Things About Tea

Listen to my new podcast on Cinch.fm. I am talking about green Assam OP Khongea tea.

From Answers.com:

Though Assam generally denotes the distinctive black teas from Assam, the region produces smaller quantities of green and white teas as well with their own distinctive characteristics.

I learned new things during my visit at a tea shop in Stockholm, called NK Kaffe & Tehandel (“The Nordic Company Coffee & Tea Trade”). What kind of new things have you learned about tea?

Preparing for the Boston Tea Party

We are preparing for the Boston TeaParty.nu on December 16 in Gothenburg city. Please stay tuned for an invitation via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.

TeaParty.nu gear

Palle Frid Svensson with TeaParty.nu cap

The tea party will start at 6 PM CET with a welcome drink (“sparkling tea”) and time for social intercourse (mingle). Around 6:30 PM, we will make a toast to the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.

Since women often purchased consumer goods for the home, the Daughters of Liberty became instrumental in upholding the boycott, particularly where tea was concerned.

http://www.ushistory.org/us/10b.asp

After the toast we will talk about the historical event in Boston and then we will have our own version of “afternoon” (high) tea with a mix of scones, tea sandwiches and Xmas treats, e.g., ginger biscuits. During eating and talking, you will have the opportunity to participate in a fun quiz about Boston and tea. The winners will win tea related prizes.

TeaParty.nu cap

Martin Lindeskog with TeaParty.nu cap

At 7:30 PM we will announce the winners of the quiz and tell you about our plans for future events. We will then end the tea party and continue the partying at some other place, e.g. a beer cellar, drinking (Samuel Adams) beer…

Tea World Cup and Indian National Drink

From The Times of India:

Tea got a new ambassador, when former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam said that the brew can be the official drink of India on Tuesday.

Even as the chief minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi declared tea as the State Drink, Kalam said that on the basis of the size of its consumers tea can be declared the national drink of India. Kalam was inaugurating the three-day World Tea Science Congress at Tocklai Experimental Station (TES), Jorhat, Assam.

(http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/, November 23, 2011.)

Will you attend the event on March 25-27, 2012, called Tea & Coffe World Cup in Vienna, Austria? As a former purchaser who is interested in supply chain management, I like the following description of the trade show:

In short, Tea & Coffee World Cup includes the entirety of the supply chain from bean or leaf to cup. Tea & Coffee Trade Journal will ensure that roasters, tea packers, retail outlets, and others connected to the coffee and tea industries will be in Vienna for the show.

Tea Merchant in Gothenburg

Listen to my latest podcast on Cinch.fm. This week I learned more about the tea merchant, James Lundgren & Co.

Did you know that James Lundgren was involved in setting up the the first teahouse in Europe in 1935? Maybe I should start to collect tea-caddies? It is interesting to learn that during the 1950′s, Kobbs tea company gave away 600,000 teapots from England in order to teach the Swedish people to learn to drink tea in a proper way again. The original tea bag was intended to be a sample of tea, not an end product! ;) So, with this story, I am inviting you to send us tea bags for future reviews and tips on new tea brands.

New Tea Party Candidate: Jon Huntsman?

Could Jon Huntsman be the new Tea Party candidate? From the article, Jon Huntsman, Tea Party Darling? by McKay Coppins:

So could Huntsman be the Tea Party’s savior?

It would certainly seem like an odd choice. Everything about the former Utah governor’s campaign—from his unflinchingly erudite discussion of foreign policy to his brazenly pro-science tweets and his obscure music references—seems designed to alienate grassroots conservatives.

Boston TeaParty.nu – Boston Harbour Tea

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today, I have ordered Boston Harbour Tea from Mark T. Wendell.
The tea is produced by Davison Newman & Co.
Mark T Wendell describes the tea as

an exceptional blend of the finest black teas from Sri Lanka and Darjeeling. When brewed, this “tea with a history” has a sweet aroma and a brisk flavor that is sure to please. (marktwendell.com/BostonHarbour.htm)

We will serve the tea at our Boston TeaParty.nu celebration event December 16.
