TeaSource Classes

TeaSource strongly believes in education and outreach and therefore offers multiple classes throughout the year to learn, discover, taste and discuss.

Pre-registration is necessary for our classes, as they fill up fast. In the event that there are less than six participants, the class may be cancelled. If you need to cancel, please note that registration fees are non-refundable within 72 hours of the class date. See an employee for details or call 877-768-7233 to register.


We have some special new teas coming in this year.  Some made by very small, village based tea masters in Asia; and some created in TeaSource's secret backroom laboratory. This is a chance to try our new selections, some of which have never before been seen in America, and learn about the incredible stories and wonderful people behind these teas.
