Event description

Description

Its flavors have been compared to mushrooms, leather and the barnyard: it's pu-erh, the fermented, often aged category of tea that hails from Yunnan Province. This unique style of Chinese tea is relatively unknown in the West, and it gains both complexity and mellowness over time.

In this hour and half class, join Sebastian Beckwith and Ana Dane of In Pursuit of Tea as we taste through five distinct examples—learning how to best brew them along the way—and delve into the history and production techniques behind this intriguing tea.





NOTE: We encourage photography and social media! That being said, you might be photographed by another attendee or our staff photographer. If you are uncomfortable with having your photo taken, don't be shy, let everyone know.

If you have any allergies, please inform the teacher prior to the beginning of the class.

Enjoy yourself & have fun.
