Experience Black Teas of China, Japan, Kenya, India & Sri Lanka Class
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Experience Black Teas of China, Japan, Kenya, India & Sri Lanka Class at Experience Tea in historic downtown Issaquah.
Black tea is enjoyed throughout the world, but many people have never tasted the many dimensions of character–not all black teas taste the same! Depending on the country in which it is grown, the hybrid or cultivar of the tea plant, and various differences in terrior.
Legend has it that black tea was thought to be a mistake and sold by the Chinese for export to early European traders, yet it grew in popularity and was soon in high demand.
In this class we’ll taste seven to eight, different single origin teas and learn about how black tea becomes black tea–processed from the same plant as white, green, oolong and pu’erh teas.
