Are you ready for a journey through your senses? In this workshop, Claudia Tse, co-founder of Teakan and certified Tea Sommelier, will guide you in tasting and learning about teas and their stories through Teakan's Vol 6 Tea Exploration Kit. It’s a tea adventure with 5 single-origin loose leaf teas in 4 tea types from 3 different regions, from sweet to savoury, and from well-known to the under-represented.
Limited spots available, registration required.
For us, tea was something that we grew up with, a beverage that is served at most Chinese restaurants, an after-meal drink at home or when we have guests. Our "preferred" tea was what our family preferred. This was the extent of our tea knowledge and we didn’t deviate or venture out to try something new.
It turns out that tea is so much more than this. Did you know that all teas come from the same plant and the differences between them are based on cultivars, region and processing? How come some teas taste sweeter and some are more vegetal? Through the attempts to unlock these mysteries, we got hooked on sampling teas, knowing where they are grown and understanding how they are processed.
We also learned that it is not always simple to learn and discover a new tea. Some teas are not commonly available. Other times the vast tea selection might just be too overwhelming to even decide where to begin. And just as important are the stories, the people and the culture behind the tea.
