Ce vei face

We'll begin with a brief 101 on Camellia sinensis (the tea plant), as well as an overview of herbal ingredients commonly used in the tea industry. Next, we will taste through a line up of white tea, green tea, and mostly herbals, as well as a few natural flavors and oils. As a group, we will note their qualities while learning some common flavor descriptors. Expect to see common ingredients like Chamomile, and Lavender, as well as some lesser known but fun to work with herbals, such as Fragrant Hyssop and Cyani. This will show you what your palate tends to favor and will put some ideas in your head about what kind of blend you'd like to make. We'll also taste a few classic infusions, such as a Moroccan style green tea made with Lemon Myrtle and Spearmint, an herbal blend of South African Rooibos and Honeybush, and the strikingly cool Pacific Northwest grown Peppermint Leaves.

I'll give you the tools to experiment with blending on your own or with guidance. You're welcome to make a tea + herbal blend, or a straight up herbal blend. By the end of our workshop, you’ll have 20+ servings to take home and share with your friends and family.

This experience was fantastic. She had wonderful insights and you could tell tea was a huge passion. She shared that passion with everyone at a level that was insightful but still at a level that anyone could understand.

Claire was knowledgeable and passionate about tea and really helped us gain a deeper appreciation for the art of tea blending. I loved making my own blend and sampling so many types of tea! I was pregnant when I took the class and Claire even researched the teas to make sure they were all safe for me.

Excellent venue, really amazing display of specially curated teas from around the world. I would highly recommend. Left with my own awesome tea blend. I thought it was a little expensive, but after the visit, I can say it was a very good value.
