MACAU, China, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Wild & Bare Co., which specializes in Chinese Artisan Teas, has created a Top 100 listing of the tea industry's most active twitterers. The list is posted on the blog page: http://wildandbare.com/blog/the-tea-industry-twitterati/
To compile the list of tea industry social media heavyweights, W&B Co. culled online "tea" sites to create a list of 100 committed companies and organizations serious about staying in touch. (Dropped from the final list were several U.S. political "tea party" tweeters, for instance; they are plenty serious, but not about tea.) The list is a tea industry resource for connoisseurs and professionals wishing to stay connected to peers.
"A genuine tea enthusiast only has so much time to learn what's happening in the vibrant tea marketplace. This listing of 100 organizations that are most actively reaching out through social media is a real time-saver," says Jean Alberti, Wild & Bare founder. "We are pleased to provide it and pledge to keep it relevant as the community evolves."
Wild & Bare Co. has a stake in keeping tea-lovers aware. The company is committed to finding and marketing the very best hand-harvested organic Chinese teagrown inartisan tea gardens across China. W&B Co. wants tea consumers to appreciate the craftsmen who produce W&B's fine Chinese green teaand other teas and to buy their product so the growers can keep growing the tea without compromising shortcuts.
Alberti is a native of France and a celebrated chef on two continents (Europe and North America) who went to Greater China to open a restaurant in Shanghai and stayed to start an organic Chinese tea company in Macau. He named the company Wild & Bare Co. in reference to the splendor and durability of the camellia sinensis tea plant and to his personal commitment to deal only in Chinese green tea and other teas grown and harvested under natural conditions.
"There is nothing more satisfying than sharing a cup of authentic tea," says Alberti, "and I hope this new list creates more of those opportunities between fellow tea enthusiasts."
