Making tea – an art or a science?

Tea making techniques are regarded both from a scientific and an artistic viewpoint. Yet the actual operations involved in the tea making process render it very difficult for scientific measurements when it comes to further analysis.

Seemingly subtle factors like the strength of sunshine, density of mountain fogs, ventilating conditions in the tea processing facilities all contribute to the characteristics of the end product. It is very often up to the expertise of the tea farmer to judge which, when and how different factors can be leveraged upon to ensure the best quality tea produced.
