  1. I don’t see the educational value, but the idea itself, LOVE IT!

  2. I don’t know if the color looks that appealing, I like a nice crisp color in my tea. I’d love to see a collage made from all the different color teas though, that would be cool 🙂

  3. Fascinating! This is a work of art in itself.

    Many people who know nothing about tea will be thinking, “why isn’t is darker?” or “where’s the brown colour”… it’s a highly educational picture, well done.

    I love it!
