Our next three-part Virtual Zoom Tea Tasting session (#8) will begin on the morning of Saturday, October 17th, at 9:30am, then continuing with different teas on October 24th and 31st. Together we will take you step by step through the proper techniques for brewing and you will hear background from an historical perspective and a demonstration of how to do it correctly.
We will provide the correct amount of tea leaves to participate in this. For these three sessions we will cover a Raw Black Tea called Thousand Taels (this is not a puer), a Cliff Tea called Hidden Door and a Red Tea called Ruby Gates. You can pick the tea leaves up from Sophie's or you can request we send them to you.
There will be a charge of $36 per participant unless we need to mail the tea leaves to you. If we package and send tea leaves there will be a $15 shipping and handling fee. In order to get tea leaves to non-local residents you need to sign up by the end of day Saturday, October 10th. You can either use the online portal on our website to pay or you can come to the shop and pay and pick up the tea leaves. We will send you an invitation to the tea tasting later in the week for those who have registered.
As always, we will entertain questions during the tasting--the tasting should be an hour to hour and 15 minutes.
