Dr Oolong State of the Union address - on the state of specialty tea
[Zhi Tea: 12th September, 2009]
Zhi Teas headquarters are located in Austin, TX which it so happens is a quite progressive and health conscious city.
Austin is actually one of the forerunners in the farm-to-plate movement; farmers in the centeral texas region are treated with great respect and sit alongside the table with the chefs that lovingly prepare exquisite dishes from their farm-fresh food.
The family at Zhi is happy to be an active part of this community here in Austin, TX and the growing community in the USA.
One of the driving forces behind the creation of Zhi Tea was to provide a high quality product to tea drinkers. As we have found the american palete has grown considerably in the last few years.
It is our challenge and joy to provide tea that always meets or exceeds our customers expections.
In spite of the seasonal climactic and cultural changes in the tea growing regions we are finding that the quality of specialty tea just keeps getting better. This is in part due to the US economic forces and in part due to the natural evolution and demand for excellence of the tea growing communities themselves.
AS we move into the fall season here, we are happy to say that our line of teas in the best we've ever had and as always we stand behind every one of them and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
