As the Chinese Proverb goes 'better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for on.' Now you can create your very own signature tea blend under the guidance of an accredited Tea Sommelier. With over 100 ingredients to choose from, you are guaranteed to create something really special.
During this session you will learn the art and science behind blending the perfectly balanced cup of tea. Experiment with a variety of aromas, textures and flavours such as Turkish Delight, Mexican Mango Chilli and Ginger Glow. Your accredited Tea Sommelier will guide you through the basics and teach you about ingredients, flavour combinations as well as allowing you to blind taste a number of blend creations. Not only will you walk away with new found knowledge and skill, you will get to take home your unique blend in a hand-made amber apothecary jar, suitable to give away as a beautiful gift or as a keep-safe.
They say a cup of tea makes everything better. We say, a cup of signature tea makes everything twice as good!
