FROM THE OLD FORUM

Withering revisited - the questions I raised previously related to these aspects of manufacture:
1. Withering: Bearing in mind that tat withering involved mainly 'natural agents' and trough withering involves 'artificial agents' has there been a study done to compare the results of the two methods?

2. In the early to mid sixties it was found that some clonal teas which, individually, made excellent teas, when mixed with other clonal leaf from the field reacted adversely and produced awful teas [for more details refer to the Radella Chapter in my book.]. Was any research done into this totally unexpected phenomenon and what were/are the results?
