The art of tea and tasting.

I love tea and coffee; coffee in the mornings, and the rest of the day I drink tea. No wonder I painted a couple of cups of tea and just one coffee.  Maybe I should be eating more apples than drinking tea – I guess this went through my mind as I painted. The featured art, above, is titled Tea and Apples, painted in oils.

Tea tasters taste as many as a thousand brews a day!  What!  That is an amazing stat. You would think these tasters would hate tea after so much tasting, but they claim to prefer tea to other drinks!  Tea tasting is similar to wine tasting, the brew is not swallowed, but merely taken into the mouth for a few seconds and then it is ejected.  This method enables better judgment as to flavor and quality.

  2. Love the paintings! I love tea though I use to love coffee. I didn’t know that tea tasting was like wine tasting. Thank you for sharing that information.
