Tea can be sweet, rich, buttery, or citrusy. It can wake you up or calm you down. Tea has a history that spans the globe and health benefits that will keep you going. It has been cultivated for over 4,000 years and is the second most popular drink in the world (behind water). Come spend some time getting to know tea’s delightful flavors and aromas, as well as its fascinating history, how it’s made, where it’s from, and what it can do for you. You’ll learn how to steep tea for best flavor and sample several varieties, such as a delicate white, smooth oolong, refreshing green, malty black, and…well, we won’t give away the surprise.
Hillel says: “I grew up drinking Constant Comment and Lipton with lots of sugar and lemon. My love affair with tea began with a rich pu-ehr that tasted like no tea I’d ever had. Then I found a malty keemun. When the oolongs entered my life, I knew I’d found a home in tea. I am a certified tea sommelier always looking to increase my own knowledge of tea and expose as many people as possible to the delights of Camellia sinensis.”
