You can obviously review any tea you already own, but you can also try your luck by contacting tea companies or online tea stores to see if some samples will be sent to you. Just point out how great it is for the tea company that they can have free advertising on your blog for the cost of a few grammes / ounces of tea that you will promote across numerous social media websites. check out the post right here
I would recommend directly contacting whole leaf tea companies via social media sites. In return, all the company will ask for is a link to its website that will help them in terms of SEO.
Loose tea brewing:
It is essential to brew it using the exact guidelines provided to you by the company when examining your loose tea sample. You should make the effort to do this if it says to use water at a certain temperature, as the company will know what temperature the tea tastes best at. When it comes to the amount of tea to use, it is the same. If you posted a negative review but did not brew the tea as suggested by the company, this would not really be fair to the tea company.
What to search for:
The dry leaf looks and smells-is it the same as the image on the website of the company? Does it smell clean and fresh? Is the leaf broken or whole?
Aroma-how does the odour change compared to the dry leaf while it is brewing? Is the tea fragrance balanced or over-powered?
Taste-Above all, how does the tea taste? Does it match or is it different from the description? Are you enjoying it? Is it possible to notice subtle flavours coming through?
The great thing about loose tea is that it is more than once you can brew it. It can often be brewed 4 or 5 times. I think it’s best to just keep going until you notice less flavours or unpleasant ones.
In your review, be sure to mention these and I believe it is essential to do at least 2 re-brews.
