Workshop 2: Tea Flights (formerly known as "Origins")

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Tea Flights is something new just added this year to replace Origins.  These will be quick 30 minute tastings of the most popular teas or botanicals that come from different growing regions.  This will give you the opportunity to taste and learn about what each region produces and the flavor profiles to look for. This year we will be a cocktail to some of the offerings plus a special drawing from one of the countries for a trip for 2 (airfare not included) for a tea tour, more on that later. 
Starting at 8:00 am and ending at Noon the schedule will go as follows:
China - An Hui Province - Shunan Teng
Herbals & Botanicals - Sharyn Johnston
Japan - Rona Tison
Africa - Wouter Verelst
Nepal - Jeni Dodd
India - Amy Dubin
