Quali-Tea

Quality is everything! If you build it, they will come... The biggest challenge I would imagine, is keeping the excellent quality in the midst of growth. The downfall of every business, seems to come when standards are lowered to make more money. Keeping it a family business with “skin in the game” keeps Harney and Sons a head above the rest.👍🏻 There needs to be a China tea cup emogi✌🏻

Thoroughly delighted

Enjoyed this podcast with a Formosa Oolong (multiple cups!) from Harney and Sons.

Interesting for a Harney Fan

Interesting backstory on Harney & Sons, and some info about the development on tea culture in the US. Sometimes I've had trouble tracking who's who and how they're related.
