In tea making, cupping means to taste and evaluate tea leaves for such factors and aroma, body, briskness, color and more. This is required to discover the qualities of the tea so consistent blends can be produced. As a natural product, tea leaves from the same geographic region can taste vastly different. This steps means the tea consistently taste the same and is of a good quality.
First, Bewley's visits tea growers across Rwanda and Kenya in Africa and the Assam region of India to begin selecting the best tea leaves to use Dublin Morning Tea. Bewleys examines tea leaves for appearance, taste, color, strength and briskness.
Then, Bewleys Master Tea Blender gets samples different varieties of tea. These samples are then reviewed for leaf size and quality. A thorough cupping is then conducted. Bewleys even has a dedicated cupping room so outside distractions can be eliminated. The best teas are then chosen and Bewleys purchases these from tea growers. Upon arrival at the Bewleys facility in Dublin, Ireland, Dublin Morning Tea can be created.
Then, the best tea leaves are purchased and shipped back to Bewley's plant in Dublin, Ireland. After arrival in Ireland, the tea leaves are tasted again to ensure they taste the same as they did before purchase at the tea estate.
Now comes the hard part. How do you blend tea from different regions to get the same taste in every cup of Bewleys Dublin Morning Tea. Adding to the complexity is that fact that each crop of tea can vary in taste. Weather may alter the taste of it may not be possible to obtain from the same tea estates every year.
