Session I: Introduction to Tea 101
The tea classes will start with a journey into the tea plant itself. Participants will take away a thorough ‘behind-the-scenes’ understanding of tea from production to taste. The complexities of tea are endless; from the appearance of the leaves, the aroma, the liquor, to the flavor, it sometimes seems as though there are hardly enough words to describe the nuances you’re experiencing! In this workshop, we will overview the various tea types and identify typical factors that affect quality and characteristics. We will delve into the techniques and terminology used to unlock the wide-ranging profiles. Finally, we will brew and taste 4-6 types of tea. This workshop provides a solid foundation for the rest of the workshops in the series.
