Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world (after water)! And with 3,000 types of tea, all coming from just one plant, there’s a lot to consider when selecting a tea. No need to worry – Bill Waddington, founder of TeaSource, has been sipping and teaching about tea throughout the world for many years and he’s agreed to share his knowledge and passion during this informative and fun online class. He doesn’t guarantee you’ll learn EVERYTHING there is to know about tea, but we’re certain you’ll learn plenty and in the process become an aficionado of all things tea.
Each attendee will receive a kit of tea samples before the class. During the class, participants will follow along with Bill as they prepare, taste, and learn about six samples of tea, one from each of the six categories of tea (Camellia sinensis). Bill will talk about tea culture, tea history and traditions, and he’ll have tips for brewing and tasting—plus there will be plenty of time for questions. You’ll also receive a handout on the basics of tea along with some really really cool tea pictures.
*Note: Students will receive kits with the necessary materials in advance.
