Current Tasting Offerings
Get to Know Looseleaf Teas
In our introductory Get to Know Looseleaf Teas tasting, we will explore three different types and attendees will:
learn about traditionally made teas through a guided tasting
leave with practical tips and techniques to continue brewing teas with confidence
Each attendee receives a tasting kit ahead of the event, which includes three looseleaf tea samples (roughly 10 grams each) and a printed steeping chart. Brewing equipment such as a teapot can be provided to complement your tea experience at an additional cost.
Tea & Cheese Pairing
One of our most popular pairing workshops, now available virtually!
In our Tea & Cheese Pairing, attendees will have the opportunity to:
- learn about a three world class cheeses from our good friends at Saxelby Cheese, and two single-origin teas through a guided tasting
- pick up techniques for further pairing exploration
- discover a favorite tea and cheese combination
Each attendee receives two separate tasting kits ahead of the event. One includes two looseleaf tea samples (roughly 10 grams each) and printed brewing chart; the second will include three cheeses. Brewing equipment, such as a teapot or infuser, can be provided to complement your tea experience at an additional cost.
Tea & Chocolate Workshop
Join us for a hour of gustatory delight: similarly to tea, single-origin chocolate has a wide range of flavor, thanks to terroir. Each traditional production region's soil, climate, and processing techniques result in distinct, unique profiles.
In our Tea & Chocolate Workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to:
- experience a range of three small-batch chocolates and three single-origin teas to match through a self-guided tasting
- hear stories behind the tea plant Camellia sinensis and the cocoa tree Theobroma cacao
- learn about the alchemy of flavor, aroma, and texture that a pairing can showcase
Each attendee receives two tasting kits ahead of the event. One includes three chocolate bars; the second, three single-origin tea samples (roughly 10 grams each) and a printed steeping chart. Brewing equipment such as a teapot can be provided to complement your tea experience at an additional cost.
