Educating Tea Palates Through Focused Tea Tastings with Single Origin and Premium Blended Teas ♥♥♥♥♥
These artisan teas have been intriguing tea seminar attendees recently!
The Dark Rose Hearts♥ have fragrant rose petals dried with specially fermented tea leaves which are then pressed into charming heart shapes. The complex aroma and flavor notes are irresistible. Each ♥ can be infused several times. The Blooming Teas are a fanciful show to mesmerize the senses as each bundle of tea floats playfully in a pot of steaming water then slowly descends to the bottom as it unfurls its flavorful leaves to expose a rainbow of blossoms dancing in the brew.

Why Focused Tea Tastings?
Welcome to the world of single origin, artisan, and premium loose leaf teas, sourced from tea gardens around the globe.
Not only is tea a healthy beverage, filled with antioxidants, but the vast variety of styles and flavors make it the most consumed beverage in the world after water.
Remember when wine consumed in America tended to be labeled red or white “jug” wine and coffee was purchased at the grocery store, in one basic flavor, already ground, in those round metal cans?
How far we have come in our knowledge and appreciation of those two beverages. Americans are now familiar with the many regions and countries that harvest grapes and coffee beans and how the various processing methods can produce different styles and tastes. How the "terroir" in a growing area gives a uniqueness to whatever is harvested there.
Now it is tea’s turn. With less caffeine per cup than coffee and no alcohol like wine, but with all those flavonols and catechins, premium tea is a healthy, varied, and most of all, flavorful, beverage. Come taste what you've been missing....
And remember - at these tastings, you can drink and STILL drive!
