- January 2017 Tea Tasting
Explore the World Through Tea!
At A Thirst for Tea we aim not only to provide you with the finest teas available from around the world but also to include you in our perpetual journey of discovery into the Way of Tea. We do this by offering monthly Tea Tastings, Chinese Tea Ceremonies as well as British Afternoon Teas conducted by Frankee Muller, our Certified Tea Master.
At our Monthly Tea Tastings we typically focus on teas of one particular country. We discuss the history of tea in that country and then sample six or seven different teas. Other times we might focus on one particular kind of tea, such as white or green, and then we would compare and contrast samples of that kind of tea from different countries. Depending upon the number of participants these tastings usually last between two and three hours. After a lively discussion about the history of the country or kind of tea, we follow the format of the Chinese Gongfu Tea Ceremony while tasting the teas, so as to appreciate and evaluate the tea with all of our senses--the look , feel and aroma of the dry and the infused leaves as well as the taste of each tea.
