March 19, 2012 - PRLog -- RateTea, an online community where anyone can rate and review teas, and a massive online reference resource about tea, with pages on over 150 specific styles (types or varieties) of tea, has linked their pages on individual styles of tea to Wikicha, a tea-oriented Wiki.  This decision was undertaken as a small step in a quest to make RateTea the most useful tea resource possible, and also to further integrate RateTea into a rich network of online communities of tea enthusiasts, particularly, websites that are independent of any tea company and thus can provide more impartial information than ones owned or affiliated with a tea company.

About WikiCha:

WikiCha is a project of Brandon, a Wilmington, Delaware based blogger, best known for his blog Wrong Fu Cha, a pun on Gong Fu Cha, a Chinese name for the brewing of tea with great skill.

The distinction between WikiCha and Wikipedia:

WikiCha has a standard wiki format which looks and functions very similarly to Wikipedia.  The two sites, however, are very different in scope, culture, and guidelines and policies.  The official Wikipedia guidelines, while ensuring quality scholarship, make it difficult to write on specialized topics such as specialty tea, in which there are few sources available that meet Wikipedia's stringent guidelines for reliable sources.  WikiCha offers a slightly more relaxed community, still populated and edited by respected experts in the area of tea, where people can go into more depth about specific types and varieties of tea than may be practical to do under Wikipedia's guidelines of verifiability and reliable sources.
