Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Good morning @PFGTea Is there any 1 tea that offers best medicinal or herbal, black, etc? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi @PFGTea @SandyWasserman @TeaCouncil Research shows that teas are actually pretty equal. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @SandyWasserman @TeaCouncil However, much more research has been done on green, but black tea and others are catching up. #SommChat

Tricia Conover, CWP @winegrapestone Welcome Peter @PFGTea to #SommChat. Will you be #texsom this weekend? If so, Welcome to Dallas. @TEXSOM @KeeperColl

Guild of Sommeliers ‏@guildsomm Fun #SommChat diversion happening with @KeeperColl and @PFGTea @teacouncil focused on tea right now. Follow #SommChat to keep up!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil what got you interested in #Tea & when did you first get interested? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil My first job out of College was with Lipton as a Chemist. working on #tea and got hooked! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep: @PFGTea how large in $ is the #tea industry in restuarants?

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl Total #tea industry is estimated to be about 10 -11 Billion #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl #tea in foodservice is about 20 - 25% of that #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass @PFGTea @KeeperColl Can you compare that figure to another industry to give context? Thanks. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @winecompass good question #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winecompass @KeeperColl #tea is about 5 - 10% of total RTD now...difficult to put in context, but have lots of growth potential #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil Tell us about your position as President of the #Tea Association of the USA/Specialty Tea Institute #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil The US Tea Assoc. is THE independent authority on #Tea. I serve as the official voice of the Tea Industry #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil I am called on to speak with various interested parties: Consumers, Customers, Members and Govt's. #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil How long should you steep a tea bag? If making iced tea from hot tea is it OK to leave tea bag in cold tea? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @SandyWasserman @TeaCouncil I steep black #tea for 3 - 5 minutes. Green much less. Its ok to leave in cold tea, but no benefit #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @SandyWasserman @TeaCouncil The beauty of #tea is that you can enjoy it any way you like...personal preference! #SommChat

Specialty Food Assn. ‏@craftcarejoy Specialty Food Association here! @PFGTea what is your fav kind of tea and why? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @craftcarejoy I have several teas I turn to; east African/India/Sri Lanka for black teas, and Japan for green #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @craftcarejoy I love good Darjeeling and sometimes a Formosa Oolong is the best! #Tea is great for all the variety if offers #SommChat

Specialty Food Assn. ‏@craftcarejoy @PFGTea thanks! excited to try sri lankan black #tea! #SommChat

Lisa W @winechix: @PFGTea @KeeperColl How does the US factor in $-wise? (vs World-wide tea consumption) #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @winechix While we are the 3rd largest importer of #tea in the world, we pale in comparison to India and China #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @winechix India produces over 1 Billion Pounds of #tea a year, but only export about 300 MM pounds. #SommChat

Charlotte ‏@TheWineKey @PFGTea Q: Does tea have a sense of Terrior like wine? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl can't wait to hear the ans to this - good Q! RT @TheWineKey: @PFGTea Q: Does tea have a sense of Terrior like wine? #SommChat

Andy Phillips @AndyOnFarmWine @TheWineKey @PFGTea don't drink much tea but assessment would B yes. Certain types grow better N cert. regs. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @TheWineKey Absolutely. #Tea and wine are very analogous! You can take the same bush and it will taste differently #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @TheWineKey Also, the tea maker, like the winemaker has, black, oolong, dark, white..all come from the same bush. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @TheWineKey It all depends on how you choose to manufacture the #tea and what processes you use #SommChat

Charlotte ‏@TheWineKey @PFGTea Wow! I had no idea all kinds of tea can come from the same bush! #Fascinating! #SommChat #learnedsomethingnew

Sassodoro ‏@Sassodoro @WorldofTea Discussion about tea with @PFGTea of @TeaCouncil on #SommChat right now!

WineCompass ‏@winecompass Q. @PFGTea I read that hibiscus tea can help lower blood pressure. Do you have any insight? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winecompass As the Tea Association, we deal exclusively with Camellia sinensis - green, black, oolong, etc., #tea. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winecompass However, hibiscus is high in Vitamin C (hence its tartness) so there may be some effect. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winecompass Much research exists on black #tea and it has been proven to lower BP due to its flavonoid contact #SommChat

Lisa W ‏@winechix @PFGTea Re Camellia sinensis teas- Could you please touch on storage tips & recommended shelf life a bit? @winecompass #Tea #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winechix @winecompass #Tea is best stored in cool, dry and dark conditions. Airtight NON-GLASS container. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winechix @winecompass The shelf life of #tea is dependent on temperature, humidity, etc., but is usually 18 - 24 months. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winechix @winecompass The absolute best storage, apart from vacuum packing is in a tupperware-like container in the freezer! #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl good morning! Last #SommChat before #TEXSOM ! Are there teas with significant higher tannins?

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @demilove @KeeperColl This is a trick one. Tannins generally refer to oxidized versions of catechins, found in green tea. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @demilove @KeeperColl so by definition, black #tea and dark tea would have highest amounts of tannins. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @demilove @KeeperColl These are called thearubigens and theaflavins in #tea. The good news is that they all have healthy impacts #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil tell us about your seminar at @TEXSOM “Restaurateurs’ Guide to Tea” #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM I’m going to throw a lot of information about tea at the participants…history, health and profits #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM The parallel to wine is amazing and I think everyone will enjoy learning about #tea. #SommChat

Seed Media @SeedPortland @PFGTea @TEXSOM I agree! Upon starting my #wineeducation, learning about teas helped immensely. Much crossover! #SommChat

Alex Bernardo ‏@VineyardGate Hi @PFGTea, the astringency in tea, does it help tea drinkers to also like wine? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @VineyardGate There is some similarity, but it depends on the type of tea. Astringent green tea is like grappa...#SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @VineyardGate whereas the astringency in black #tea can be more like a Cabernet. The fun is in the exploration! #SommChat

Tricia Conover, CWP ‏@winegrapestone What was the origin of Earl Grey #tea? British popularity? #SommChat @PFGTea

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winegrapestone It started with the Earl of Grey in China. He drank black #tea flavored with oil of bergamot. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @winegrapestone It has been offered for many years by traditional tea companies. The key is the oil, and of course, the #tea #SommChat

Sassodoro ‏@Sassodoro . @PFGTea Could you comment on food-tea pairings relative to food-wine pairings? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @Sassodoro This is a growth area for #tea and the second part of our Texsom seminar will be addressing this. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @Sassodoro We're developing more classes at STI on this as well as cooking with #tea #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil what do you hope the audience will get out of your seminar at @TEXSOM? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM How #tea selection is important…Why tea is growing so fast… How can tea benefit your bottom line…#SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM and a deeper understanding of this great beverage! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Learning so much abt #tea today fr @PFGTea @TeaCouncil - his prog. @TEXSOM should be gr8 #SommChat

Specialty Food Assn. ‏@craftcarejoy Do you enjoy tea cocktails?! What do you think of the trend? @PFGTea @TheOwlsBrew #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @craftcarejoy @TheOwlsBrew Hey, throw booze on anything and I'm in!!! LOL! It is a growing trend and many recipes developed #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @craftcarejoy @TheOwlsBrew We are actually offering a #tea mixology session tomorrow at our STI Learning Expo...#SommChat

Specialty Food Assn. ‏@craftcarejoy @PFGTea @TheOwlsBrew like your thinking! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil we hear you were the first American-born #Tea Taster in the history of @Lipton/Unilever. Tell us more. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil Was doing research on tea and was having the all British Tea tasters evaluate my results. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil They were using some really strange words like “chesty”, “musty”; “earthy” to describe the tastes. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil I started to taste with them to try and figure out what they were tasting. So I would taste with them. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil Found out that they were looking for someone to become a trainee, so I went. Best decision I ever made! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil what other seminars are you most interested in at @TEXSOM 2014? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM I am lucky to be here. I’m a golfer, I'm in charge of Beer & Wine at my club. Looking to learn! #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM Many people don’t know but my Grandfather was a champagne maker and my father a wine taster. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil @TEXSOM I’m the black sheep of the family for going non-alcoholic with #tea! LOL! #SommChat

Adam Plotkin ‏@AdamPlotkin Since this is #SommChat I have 2 ask: anyone ever try to steep their tea in #wine? ;-) #YeahIThinkOfThisStuff! #YouWillAllBeTryingThis2nite!

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @AdamPlotkin Never seen that, but I've seen wine with tea....not the best combination! But green tea & vinho verde might be nice! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl only a few more mins to ask questions abt #tea to @PFGTea on #SommChat get them in now!

ormiga ‏@ormiga #SommChat @KeeperColl if @TeaCouncil was #tea taster then how dev taste+still love tea? cant gulp any?

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @ormiga @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil I need to be objective when I evaluate #tea, but I can enjoy what I like. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @ormiga @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil You might personally prefer a dry wine, but you need to be critically objective about sweet wine #SommChat

ormiga ‏@ormiga o i c @PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil so #tea tasters dont have contracts prohibiting taste+chug tea or other liquids #SommChat

Alex Bernardo ‏@VineyardGate .@PFGTea 1 more Q, does the type of teapot enhances different kinds of teas? #SommChat #tea

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @VineyardGate Yes, depending on what kinds of tea you are drinking. Some green #tea for example, is "wetted' several times #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @VineyardGate so it is important to have a pot that holds temperature #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @VineyardGate Other types of tea may demand lower temperatures or different volumes. The short answer is the pot is important! #SommChat

Alex Bernardo ‏@VineyardGate TY! RT @PFGTea Other types of tea may demand lower temperatures or different volumes. The short answer is the pot is important! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil what are some of your favorite #teas to drink right now in the #summer? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil I always have hot #tea in the, strong with milk and sugar. Afternoon it’s time for Iced. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil I enjoy many of the RTD teas and they’re great when you’re on the road, but home brewed is best. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PFGTea @TeaCouncil what are some trends you are seeing in #teas ppl drink today? #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil Huge move to Specialty #Tea Big growth there. RTD, Foodservice and traditional tea bags are growing. #SommChat

Peter F. Goggi ‏@PFGTea @KeeperColl @TeaCouncil Also, the Millenials are becoming enamored with #tea, so the consumer is trending younger. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Time to wrap up! Hope U enjoyed #tea talk w/ Tea Expert Peter Goggi @PFGTea @TeaCouncil #SommChat
