BBC Radio 4 – Food Programme

Yesterday BBC Radio 4 ran a programme on the rise in popularity of tea and the growing trend towards specialty teas, away from your bog standard supermarket shelf builders’ tea. Well worth a listen: firstly for the sheer enthusiasm of Henrietta Lovell and secondly because the UK Tea Council’s Bill Gorman sounds rather like Ivor Cutler, also a man rather fond of a brew…

Interesting to hear about the tea being grown in Malawi, not normally an area of the world I’d immediately associate with tea. There’s further tea broadcasting on Radio 4 this Wednesday on You & Yours.

Listen to Speciality Teas on BBC iPlayer (UK only).
