This month I am pleased to host 2 evening tea classes at Teacup (2128 Queen Anne Ave. N. Seattle, WA, 98109).
March 11, 2010 - 7:00 to 8:00 pm
World of Tea - In this class we will explore the rich history of tea production and its consumption in China, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka and Japan. An emphasis will be put on basic tea types (such as: white, green, oolong, black and puer teas) and how to brew them well. We’ll also discuss health benefits, buying tips, and culture while we sample many different and delicious loose leaf teas.
March 25, 2010 - 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Gong Fu Style Chinese Tea Brewing Workshop - In this "hands on" class, students will take turns brewing Chinese tea for the group. I will guide the class as we rotate between several wonderful oolong and pu-erh teas. We will practice using clay teapots and gaiwans and resteep each tea several times.
These evening classes cost $3 per guest and require a RSVP. It's sometimes OK to RSVP even on the same day. You may RSVP anytime by visiting or calling the Teacup (206-283-5931) or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will let you know as new classes are scheduled, and please feel free to suggest a class idea on a subject you'd like to learn more about. I hope to see you soon at a class!
