~ learn what tea is (and what it isn’t) and get to know the six types of tea
~ learn how to taste tea
~ learn how to prepare tea
~ find out about the difference between specialty tea and 'supermarket tea', and
~ taste six different teas throughout the event

DURATION: 90 minutes (flexible). 
COST: $399 for up to 8 people. $549 for 9 - 18 people. For numbers above 18, please contact us. Payment: 50% deposit to secure booking, remaining 50% due before the day of the event.

"The event was really well structured, with lots of tasty and interesting teas covering the full range of white, green, yellow, oolong, black, and dark tea. All of the teas were lovely, and Anna had chosen some really interesting teas to compare and contrast against each other. Anna is an excellent host, with an impressive knowledge and an infectious enthusiasm. We learned heaps about the best ways to prepare tea, the effect that different processing has on the flavour of teas, and even the differences between loose leaf teas and supermarket teabags. It was great to be able to ask questions of an expert in a fun and informal setting."
