As with most simple foodstuffs, there is more to tea than first meets the eye. Coaxing out and fully appreciating all the nuanced complexities in truly fine tea takes a bit of effort and time, but it’s a worthwhile investment for the layers of flavors that follow and linger with you throughout the day. Plus, taking an extra moment to slow down and savor a product that’s traveled across the world before arriving in your cup, is a satisfying act of mindfulness. In this video, Samovar Tea founder Jesse Jacobs, walks us through the practices for how to prepare and taste tea for best results.
