Learn the Art of Tea Blending, and create your very own custom aromatic blends to take home with you!

About this event:

In this class, you will be exploring the diverse flavor profiles of different types of tea leaves, herbs and flowers and learn how to identify different flavor notes and aromas. In addition, you will learn how to handle these different components of tea to craft a custom blend to suit your own personal tastes and preferences.

Tea Blending involves working with a wide variety of herbs, flowers, roots, fruits and spices in addition to tea, which allows for endless flavor explorations and possibilities when it comes to blending. This class will encourage you to explore a variety of flavors and aromas and find ones that resonate with you. There will be tasting sessions during the workshop and you will get to make several different blends of your very own to take home!

Thanks to local beloved kitchenware shop Goods for Cooks for providing tools for the workshop and Blossom & The Bee Tea Company for providing many of the herbs from their garden.
