Tea has thousands of years of rich history in China and this tea tasting experience will excite your tastebuds and give you a deeper understanding of your favourite drink. Where does the word 'tea' come from? Why do some call it 'cha'? What is the Chinese way of brewing and drinking tea? Explore all this and more!
Hanna, the tea artisan, will brew tea for you to try in traditional tea sets. Each piece of these bespoke, hand-painted tea sets has been made in China with traditional methods and are beautiful pieces of art.
You will be tasting three classic types of premier tea, all of which have been specially selected by Hanna according to the season. Learn all about different types of tea from leaves to flowers and roots. You will learn how they are grown, harvested, roasted, and served.
To pair with your tea tasting, there will also be three handmade snacks. Some are savoury and some are sweet, but all are made with the same methods used by Chinese people since the 10th century. You can also learn to make these snacks by booking an add-on cooking class!
What makes this tasting experience so special is that you can book it a few times and get a different set of teas and snacks. It's a very unique thing to do in London, you won't find this anywhere else. You will find yourself in a small class and spacious shop with air conditioner. Often gets private class in weekdays.
