Tea Tasting is a wonderful way to experience different teas. Based on the way the teas producers taste the teas we will do a Cupping. This is a standardised way of brewing the tea and tasting it, which will bring out the various characters of the tea.
We will be tasting a selection of 6 teas and possibly one or two tisanes. All teas will be brewed for the same time, so that they can be compared well.
For some of the teas we will also provide small portions of food or sweets to demonstrate some food pairing options. Also, as we plan to swallow each tea for the complete taste experience this is more agreeable. White bread will be available to cleanse the palate, so the taste is pure every time.
For each tea we will try and determine your experience of the smell, look and taste of the tea. What does it taste like when you drink it, is there a different aftertaste, do you think it is pleasant?
This will be accompanied by providing background information on tea, where tea is grown, what is the impact of various locations etc. For each tea we will provide some background.
The overall tea tasting will take between 45 and 60 minutes and it will include a decent sample of the favourite tea from the tasting for your enjoyment at home.
Please note that tasting tea on an empty stomach may cause a bit of discomfort.
