Immerse yourself in the steamy world of tea, from its roots in China around 59 BC to its contemporary iterations. Presented by the winner of the 2017 World Tea Brewers Cup, this class is a comprehensive and passionate overview of the second most popular drink in the world. Discover how one plant species has led to six families and hundreds of individual pure leaf teas. By the end you’ll know how to cup, brew and identify quality tea.

There’ll be plenty of sample flavours to matcha you with your favourite. We’ll get hot and heavy covering both eastern and western brewing styles, history and equipment.
