Seattle, WA, June 20, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Expedition Tea Company, a Northwest-based premium loose leaf tea purveyor, is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of men who are purchasing premium loose leaf teas.
“A growing number of tea drinkers are coming to us looking for hand-crafted, estate-grown, premium loose leaf teas, and a surprising number—almost 80%—of those tea drinkers are men,” says T. Elizabeth Atteberry, owner of Expedition Tea and a Specialty Tea Institute Certified Tea Specialist. “Tea is taking the same course as wine did some 10 or 15 years ago when wine drinkers became more knowledgeable and began replacing their white wine spritzers with estate-grown Chardonays and Rieslings. Tea drinkers are starting to exchange their Earl Grey with a Castleton Estate Darjeeling or a top grade Dragonwell.”
Expedition Tea Company is a haven for the adventurous tea connoisseur. The owners had a vision to provide a venue for tea beyond the many Victorian “pinkie” tea and health-focused tea sites now found on the Web.
Not only does the Expedition Tea Company supply premium teas on its Web site (www.expeditiontea.com), but also provides readers with extensive information about the tea including region of origin, preparation as well as histories.
“Customers are looking for good tasting tea and more, including organic teas and the assurance of fair trade,” says Atteberry who recently returned from a trip to China as a delegate of the US Tea Association to encourage organic growing techniques and fair work conditions.
