Today I greatly expanded RateTea’s article on Turkey.  I think the new article would interest not just tea enthusiasts, but also people who, like me, are fascinated by geography and climate.  Turkey is mostly a semi-arid country, but there’s a peculiar climate in a small region in northeast Turkey, which creates the wettest region in all of western Asia.  This is where their tea is grown!

New Lists of Brands and Tea Companies Selling Specific Types of Tea

We added a new feature to our site, the ability to list brands and companies selling a specific style of tea.  For example:

  • Green tea brands - and because we list flavored teas in a separate category, this list will only include companies selling at least one pure (unflavored) green tea.
  • Chai / spiced tea brands - Companies selling masala chai or spiced tea blends.
  • Earl grey tea brands - another example, a more specific type of flavored tea.

Each page has a list of all brands on the left, and on the right you can find a list of the brands with the top-rated teas in this category (weighted for consistency, just having one top-performing tea isn’t enough to get you in this list), and below this you can find a list of companies with the largest selections of this type of tea.

These are just a sampling…any of the 150+ styles of tea on our site now have a special page like this for them.  There are broad categories (green, black, oolong, etc.) and more specific types (Darjeeling, long jing, Jasmine, etc.).

We hope you find this useful!  Let us know if there are any features you’d like to see added, or new ways of organizing or presenting all the info on our site!
