Although some experts believe that tea tasting need natural talent and cannot be taught in any institute, tea tasters have to trained either on the job / or in an institute to detect tea
quality by looking at the brightness (blackish or brownish), colour (like coppery or bright red), strength and body of the tea. They should be able to tell between a mellow cup and a brisk
cup, able to distinguish tea from each specific region from their flavour, be able to sniff a smoke tint in the tea, and examine the evenness; colour or brightness of dry / infused leafs to
know the strength and body of the tea. They have to be trained to make their palates proficient enough to register even the minute differences.
