Although the sense of ‘best’ is subjective and personal, there are few p yardsticks which are referred to when calling a product ‘best’. Since, tea is a very common beverage and popular in almost every part of the world, there are a few basic traits which shall enable one to identify the best tea that is available in the market.

Below enlisted are certain features that one should look for, while purchasing tea from the market:

• Appearance of the tea leaves is a thing to judge. Various kinds of tea leaves are available: flat, strips, flakes, powder and so on. The best quality tea leaves would be hairy and also tender to touch. The best quality leaves would have intact tips.
