COMPARATIVE CUPPING: OOLONGS


"Why can't we all just get oolong?"

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. Find out why oolongs are a class unto themselves - and a cup above the rest!
Class cost: $15/person

BAKING WITH TEA

Join us for an afternoon of tea and baked goods... baked goods made with tea! We will pair our favorite teas with baked treats crafted specially for this class by Georgia Cook, a veteran employee of our Eden Prairie location. We will taste (pending experimentation): Jasmine Scones, Red Berries Hard Candy, Roasted Chestnut Sweetbread, Lapsang Souchong Cheddar Biscuits, and Georgia's ever popular Chai Spice Meringues. Come hungry!

TEA PASSAGE TO INDIA

India makes more tea than any other country (except China); and the range of Indian teas, flavor, strength, appearance, and leaf style is vast. Bill Waddington recently returned from a tea pilgrimage to north and east India: sourcing teas, visiting tea gardens, and learning about tea. This workshop allows you to come along with Bill as he recounts his recent trip. You will taste a range of Indian teas as you follow Bill's itinerary: visiting Indian tea gardens, tea auctions, tea brokers, and local villages. It'll almost be like visiting Darjeeling without the long plane ride.
Class cost: $15/person

Saturday, April 25, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Wednesday, May 13, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
