Chris Cason,wrote the the book A Guide to Tea. That book got John Paul Lee’s attention and together they founded Tavalon Tea. Chris’ passion for team made him the perfect choice to be the sommelier for Tavalon Tea.The mission for Tavalon has always been to source only the finest teas from around the world and to create unique blends based on the American palate through in depth research. Right now tea is the number 7 selling in the US and Tavalon wants tea to become number 1 (or at least number 6).
On today’s interview Chris shared some great recipes and tips on making iced tea, sangria with tea and other healthy beverages. Tavalon makes awesome blends of loose leaf tea that are healthy and delicious. Most tea you drink comes from the tea dust from the bottom of the tea barrels – Tavalon only uses the top shelf stuff and you can taste the difference. Go to their website www.tavalon.com and browse around you will see teas that you have never seen before. Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy think Tavalon Tea is #1 – that’s why they are the official tea of our radio show.
