Tea Review is the long overdue tea counterpart to Coffee Review, which in 1997, launched an online publication featuring the first-ever 100-point wine-style coffee reviews. Over the years, Coffee Review, often referred to as “the Wine Spectator of the specialty coffee industry,” has become one of the most respected, widely read, and influential coffee publications, with as many as one million unique visitors per year.
In 2019, Coffee Review co-founder Ron Walters launched Tea Review to bring 100-point wine-style tea reviews to the specialty tea market. Tea Review has assembled an impressive Tea Advisory Board and Tea Tasting Panel to guide the development of a highly credible 100-point tea rating system that will be popular with tea lovers as well as advance the broader goals of the specialty tea industry as a whole.
We believe Tea Review’s unique contribution to the tea community is to conduct objective, expert sensory evaluations of teas and report those results in the form of 100-point reviews. Our mission is to help consumers identify and purchase superior quality teas, thereby increasing demand and prices, and ultimately rewarding farmers and tea companies that invest their time, passion, and capital in producing high quality teas.
Before the end of the year, you can expect Tea Review to begin publishing its first tasting reports and 100-point reviews. If you have ideas, comments, suggestions, or wish to support Tea Review as a sponsor, advertiser, or collaborator, please email Ron Walters at [email protected].
