Teasense Tea Learning Experiences include:

  • Tea 101 – Exploring Tea: An introduction to the main styles of tea; tasting, ideal brewing and learning where and how they are produced and what makes them so different. You’ll never make an astringent green tea again!
  • Tea, Nurturing and Mindfulness: A hands-on experience of how tea can help us find a sense of calm and connection – with ourselves & with others – in our hectic lives. Drawing on the tea cultures of China and Taiwan, we’ll discover that tea is more than just a delicious beverage; it is also a tool we can use to enhance our wellbeing and connectedness. Through brewing and tasting beautiful tea with awareness, discover how to create your own tea ritual at home.
  • Tea and Connection: Inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony concept of Ichigo Ichi-e – one precious moment together – this class aims to redress our increasingly disconnected lives. We return to the  art of being quietly present with each other in tea. Through the simple act of brewing mindfully and with intention we build a true connection with each other, giving and receiving a priceless gift.
  • Tea and Chocolate Pairing: A delicious exploration of the world of pairing single origin and nuanced specialty tea and chocolate. Have fun using your taste buds to discover how to taste them and the different approaches to pairing.

I also run  a Tea Masterclass suitable for baristas, taste professionals and those keen to really understand tea in greater depth. Exploring all 6 styles of tea – white, green, yellow, oolong, black and aged pu’erh teas – we try different brewing methods and delve more fully into production and each of the sensory steps involved in experiencing and understanding tea. A strong foundation on which to build your future tea learning.
