COMPARATIVE CUPPING: OOLONGS

Oolong teas have the most diverse flavor profiles of any category of tea and are also the most complex to make. Refine your palate in this cupping workshop which focuses exclusively on oolong teas. You will taste light floral Taiwanese oolongs, medium-bodied classic semi-ball style oolongs, and deep, dark rock oolongs from Fujian province in China. We will also sample a few rare oolongs that defy categorization. Learn how geography, climate, leaf-style variations, and manufacture all affect the outcome of the leaf, and find out why oolongs are a class unto themselves- and a cup above the rest!
Class cost: $15/person

Saturday, November 8th, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

COMPARATIVE CUPPING: TEAS OF JAPAN

Refine your palate in this cupping workshop focusing exclusively on mostly green teas from Japan. You will taste many teas from Japan's different tea producing regions and learn how geography, climate, seasonal, and leaf-style variations affect the outcome of the cup. In addition, we will be simulating the tea merchant experience with a cupping of samples sent to us from Japan for assessment and possible purchase - the best part of our jobs.
Class cost: $15/person
