Tea tasting on the assembly line

My spouse is a Science Channel junkie. This weekend, we vegged out during a marathon of "How Do They Do It?" shows, which included this report about a professional tea taster (via YouTube):

I can't quite decide if that would be the coolest job on the planet (drink tea, get paid) or the worst (drink tea, spit it out).

Note the narration: "Their loyal customers expect every tea bag to taste the same." Thus the tea-tasting gig for this guy, to insure consistency. Which pretty much spoils the whole point of enjoying tea, right?
