There is so much to learn about tea and we enjoy sharing our knowledge with fellow tea lovers.
This “Introduction to Tea” seminar is designed for those who are new to tea and want to gain an overview of the basics, including the different types of tea and how best to prepare them.
Our workshops look at each of the different tea categories in more depth. If for example you know you are only interested in green tea, or oolong tea, then a workshop would be the best option for you.
For those who already know tea well and are curious to try specific teas from our range in a more hands-on environment we offer private tea consultations.
And for hotels and restaurants who would like to improve their customers’ experience with tea at their establishments, we offer an advisory service covering everything you need to know, from choice of tea menu through to how to prepare and serve tea.
