Tea Class 2-1/13 – Welcome and Tea types Recap

Are you READY for the next set of the “VIDEO SERIES” for tea lovers and sellers?!

YES, it has officially started.

WELCOME to the TEA VIDEO SERIES Part 2!

There are still a lot of things that we have not shared with you and there is no stopping us from sharing these interesting and helpful information with you! You can bet on that!

Now, before we move forward to the juicier bits, let us first reminisce what went down during out last video series and then a little bit of teaser of what’s in store for you!

In the above video: So, you are dedicated to selling tea successfully. That is fantastic to hear! πŸ™‚

It’s me again, Salina from Teas.com.au and Empiro.

Welcome to the Tea Video Class Part II of our Tea Series Video Training!!!

To give you a quick warm-up, let me recap some of the things that we talked about during the part 1 of our video series.

We basically discussed the different tea types including:

1. Black tea

Black tea such as the good β€˜ol English Breakfast, Earl Grey and the likes.

2. Green Tea

A lot of people mistakenly think green tea originated from Japan but in fact it originated in China. There is some documentary that says Green tea originated in India but the official answer is still China.

3. Oolong (Wulong)

This is the kind of tea that sits between green tea and black tea. It is partially fermented, if the fermentation is more on the light side then the look and the taste is similar to green tea and if it is heavily fermented then it is leaning more towards black tea.

Oolong is actually a big range of tea and it is my favourite.

4. White tea

This is not the black tea with milk! White tea is the least processed tea which basically involved plucking, sorting and grading of the tea leaves.

A lot of people are saying that since white tea is the least processed, it retains most tea nutrients and components as compared to the other tea types.

White tea is fermented to a very tiny degree, it is not unfermented, as stated by some of the tea makers, it does actually go through a very light fermentation.

And YES, it does have caffeine just like all the other teas that comes from Camellia sinensis.

5. Pu-erh

This is an unusual type of tea because the study of Pu-erh is highly complex as compared to wine. Whether it is a Camellia sinensis plant that is 3000 years old or just a little bit bigger than the usual Camellia tea plant (hedge), it actually affects the taste.

Puerh is better aged which makes Pu-erh atypical and smooth tasting. Unlike other teas, freshly made Puerh is not good for consumption – the taste is more astringent and harsh to the palate.

One other unique character of Pu-erh is that it is actually the tea which is deliberately molded into a disk shape, like a fat frisbee, and the compacting and the storage causes the Pu-erh to age. So, if you get a hold of a Pu-erh cake that is 10 or 15 years old then it is a gem.

As a drink, Pu-erh looks a little bit dark and some might think it tastes bitter but it is quite agreeable to drink and good for digestion. A lot of people actually buy it for weight loss.

6. Herbal Infusion and Fruit Infusion

These are essentially same type of non-tea drink.

A blend of fruits, roots, leaves and things like that, most of them are caffeine free but there are herbal infusion that has caffeine such as the Yerba Mate.

There are definitely a broad range of herbs out there that is being used as tea.

Moreover, when we talk about fruit infusion, keep in mind that it is not actually the dried fruit itself but it is actually an added flavour that helps to give you that fruity taste.

There you have it, a little bit of recap on the things that we discussed on our Tea Video Series Part 1.

Coming up in this new Tea Video Series is more serious and exciting.

We will discuss the following:

1. Private Label Tea
2. Tea Choices
3. Packaging
4. Tea in Kitchen
5. Tea and Food Matching

We will touch on how big your range should be or what tea to sell in your business. We are going to have some fun with tea in terms of packaging, tea in kitchen and tea and food matching.

There are a lot of ways for you to multipurpose your tea and to help you sell more.

Whether you are running a beauty salon, a tea shop or a website which is tea focus or related to health, you can tea as a vehicle to drive that mission or tone of your business, it could be for weight loss or for detox or for well-being, just think outside the box.

Try to put more thought on your mission, why are you selling certain kinds of tea rather than just throwing every tea to your customers.

There is an important need to think about what is behind you for selling tea. People are doing it for the money do not usually go a long way.

If you are looking to create a solid business in selling tea then you need to give it a great deal of thought when we speak of the story behind the tea and the passion will eventually follow through.

The story is actually what entices people to buy tea these days.

We are always bombarded with a lot of brands and you need to aim to stand out!
