The Steepery Tea Co. hosts a Tea Blending Workshop for Ashurst Australia
Address: Brisbane, QLD, 4000
We had a lovely afternoon hosting a custom tea blending workshop for a corporate client, Ashurst Australia. After sharing a brief introduction to the world of tea, each attendee had the opportunity to create their own signature tea blends from our range of pure teas and organic blending ingredients.
"I was truly impressed with The Steepery at our most recent corporate function. Working with Kym was a dream - she really saw our vision and made it happen. Kym's enthusiasm and passion for tea really comes across in the way she talks about it. I am still receiving feedback from the attendees on how much they enjoyed themselves. The gifts that each attendee received was so beautiful and I just know it made their day. I will most definitely be using The Steepery again for any future event."
