For the past 20 years, the Camellia Sinensis Tea House has traveled the world in search of the best teas. In this conference, she shares her discoveries on the notion of terroir. Each tea reveals at its origin a combination of meteorological, geological and geological factors unique to its environment. These variables, by stimulating or inhibiting the growth cycle of plants, confer to the place of production a sense of local identity. Careful observation of this phenomenon reveals a series of physical and chemical markers that make up the distinctive features of a given region that is then called terroir.
