Types of available events
Tea foundations 101
An introduction into the world of specialty tea for beginners.
Learn about the mighty tea plant, Camellia sinensis var. sinensis/assamica, and the six main processing styles that are produce finished tea from it.
Together, we will navigate the flavour wheel, learn more about tea growing regions, tea tasting with fresh tea, and more.
Tea and chai blending workshop
Our most popular format. Attendees are offered a deep dive into the tips and tricks of the trade from an industry retailer.
Combining a practical and theory component, the workshop begins with a quick history of tea, suggested recipes, a brief lecture about the tea flavour wheel, as well as a rundown of the organic spices, herbs, botanicals and tea bases available for blending.
Tea tasting and food pairing events
We offer tea tasting events at your store, café or workspace. Our tasting events cover foundations on tea and opportunities to sample tea from different regions. Attendees from previous workshops have often remarked on how they enjoyed trying something new.
We also conduct food and tea pairing events. Tea has an amazing diversity of flavour and goes with dessert, cheese, savoury food, chocolate and more.
