Most information available in English is focused on marketing sachets and tins. Tea Journey shifts the conversation from tins to terroir and from packets to people with stories about exceptional artisans and extraordinary tea gardens. A third of the content originates with respected Chinese-language publications like Cha Dao Life and Pu-erh Magazine as well as Korean, Japanese and Hindu tea titles.
Tea Journey is formatted for print, but out of respect for the world’s forests it is distributed as a digital publication. The mobile magazine includes sections with tasting notes to develop your tea expertise, interviews with tea growers and tea masters, and profiles of artisans in teacraft and teaware. There are profiles of collectors, scientists, antiquities scholars and tea blenders. Targeting established tea lovers, thirsty for a deeper connection to culture and origin, each issue helps readers discover and refine their taste in tea – helping them select, correctly prepare, and serve the finest teas from around the world.
Sections include Health & Wellness and Teaware & Antiquities and Tea Cuisine. Regular features include Tea Quest, tales of travel and adventure, the Puer Pages and a series on Tea & Tech that includes reports on modern tea brewers, tea apps and gadgets.
