Regular price

One plant species, 6 production styles, 5000 years of history - pure leaf tea has infinite possibilities!

Join our tea tasting journey to get started unravelling the world of leaf tea and gain practical skills to enhance your tea journey.  

During this 2 hour tasting journey you will be introduced to the botanicals of tea with a focus on origin, terroir and provenance to gain an understanding of pure leaf tea (camellia sinensis). 

We will cover the main tea types and styles and the journey of tea from the farm to cup including the role of the many masterful hands involved in finishing tea to its best form.

You will enjoy tasting several styles of pure leaf tea from a number of the world’s most significant tea growing regions to appreciate the incredible diversity in flavour profiles. During the tasting, we will slow down and take time to consider tea characteristics such as fragrance, body, colour and taste (just like wine!). 

Date: Sunday, 14 March 2021 or Sunday, 2 May 2021

Duration: 2 - 4 pm (120 minutes).  

Tea Snacks: You will receive a small plate of savoury and sweet light snacks to make your tea experience a little more special. If you do have any dietary requirements please notify me directly.  

Gifting: This tea experience may make a lovely gift. We have available a printable gift certificate. Once you have purchased your ticket please email us at with the name of the gift recipient. We will personalise the gift voucher and email it to you (please allow 24hours).
