Interview: Eric Prepares for Tea Origin Visit to China
Our Vice President of Operations and ingredient buyer extraordinaire, Eric Ring, is off to China! Eric has been sourcing ingredients and developing our tea blends for 20 years. If you have a favorite Choice Organic Teas tea or herbal blend, it’s very likely that Eric has had a role in ensuring the quality of ingredients and perfecting the balance of flavors in your cup.
Eric will be in China for two weeks visiting tea gardens, meeting farmers and workers, tasting new teas, and getting a firsthand look into our garden’s Fair Trade initiatives. We’re looking forward to sharing his experiences and images with you when he returns!
