WHAT DOES A TEA CLASS ENTAIL?
We will guide these tea classes to meet the needs of the people in the room. Our focus will *always be tea tasting and tea brewing. You can also get a feel for how to guide a tea session of your own in your own space by following our example.
Tea tasting (or evaluation) is a skill that must be honed in order to brew better tea, or else the brewer may not know what to look for to guide her in moving forward. As so with improved brewing technique she can taste more nuances in the tea. So, like the two wings of a bird in flight, tea tasting and tea brewing support each other, and we therefore will lead participants to either learn tasting or brewing based on what is needed at that time. Please come with an open mind and be prepared to focus on either subject.
*We do not focus on explaining production methods, identifying growing regions or memorizing cultivars. We consider this information to be useful and fascinating, but only once the quality of tea can be evaluated.
(We'll try to remind you again, but make sure to eat something before coming to the class. We'll drink lots of teas, and a full belly is a must -- or else you might get too high!)
