TRAVELS IN TEA: INDIA

TeaSource owner Bill Waddington just returned his latest tea journey: India. He traveled through the streets of Kolkata, to the mountains of Darjeeling, and to the wide fertile plains of Assam. He met tea growers and brokers, stayed at tea gardens, tasted some wonderful early first flush Indian teas, and learned, a lot, all while looking for great teas to bring back to TeaSource. Join us to hear all about his adventure and experience "milk tea" - a common drink in India!
Class cost: $15/person

Saturday, April 26th at Eden Prairie TeaSource, 12:00-2:00p.m.
Wednesday, May 7th at St. Paul TeaSource, 7:00-9:00p.m.

COMPARATIVE CUPPING: TEAS OF INDIA

Refine your pallet in this cupping workshop focusing exclusively on black teas from India. You will taste teas from India's three major tea producing regions (Darjeeling, Assam, and Nilgiri) and learn how geographic, 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 India for assessment and possible purchase - the best part of our jobs.

SPECIAL TEAS OF JAPAN

Japan has been making some of the world's greatest teas since 800 A.D. and Bill Waddington recently returned from a buying/sourcing trip to Japan. In this workshop we will taste all of the classic Japanese teas. We will also cup some of the very best-very freshest Japanese teas from the 2014 spring harvest; many of these teas will be from small family tea farms.
