How Climate And Geography Influence Tea Production And Flavor - RateTea Explains

Climate and geography influence tea production, both in terms of where the tea plant can be grown, and how the finished tea tastes. RateTea has published a new resource explaining the relationships between climate, geography, and tea production.

 
PRLog - Jan. 23, 2012 - Tea is a beverage produced from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, also called the tea plant.  Tea is widely cultivated commercially in a number of regions.  The regions in which tea can be grown, and in which it is economically feasible to cultivate tea commercially, are constrained by climate, which is in turn influenced by geography.  Climate and geography also influence the flavor and other qualities of the finished tea leaf and the flavor of the brewed cup.

RateTea, an online community where anyone can rate and review teas, and an informational website with a broad range of tea-related topics, has released a new guide which comprehensively explores the influence of climate and geography on tea production and flavor.  This guide explains concepts such as orographic lift and the moderation of climate by the presence of water, and also discusses how seasonality of precipitation and temperature influences tea.

The guide also discusses the limits of production of the tea plant, related to the plant's hardiness for cold and drought.  RateTea also has additional information about the climate and geography of particularly tea-growing regions.
