The people I know to be true tea experts are not quick to find fault, not quick to point fingers and make snide remarks, not quick to speak.

The wine sucked but at that moment I truly learned and understood that wine was meant to be consumed and enjoyed. Pure and simple enjoyment. It was Hearty Burgundy and will always have a fond little spot in my heart.

Here’s the science behind the idea.
