If you sip your tea, you're doing it wrong

MILWAUKEE - Attention tea-drinkers!  You've been doing it wrong!

We all have our favorite flavors, but Suzette Hammond, Director of Education at Rishi Tea, tells me the best way to drink tea is to slurp it.

"Spray it across your pallette," Hammond expained.  "It allows you take in some air so you're smelling and tasting (the tea) at the same time."

Tea drinkers don't get the whole just by sipping it, according to Hammond.

"It's a different experience," she said.
