June 1, 2011 - PRLog -- RateTea.net has added percentile ratings to their site of tea ratings and reviews, allowing users to see which teas are ranked as best by the community of users on the site.

The rankings are calculated not on simple averages alone, but take into account differences in scoring by different reviewers.,

The percentile rating is now displayed prominently on the page for each tea, for easy comparison and perspective.  Teas with three or more ratings, and users with three or more reviews are included in the rankings.

Popular teas are not the best teas:

The percentile rankings of tea already shows a clear trend in which the most popular (most often-rated) teas actually have relatively low rankings.  This reflects the lower quality of the mass-produced teas that have broader brand recognition and are more well-known.

There is still some bias in the data, due to the strong preference people have in many western countries for tea bags.  Although individual users who sample both loose-leaf tea and tea bags tend to rate loose-leaf tea much more highly, the ratings on the site are still heavily skewed towards tea bags as these products are more popular and well-known.
