Join us for a tutored-tasting of teas paired with custom-made chocolate truffles. Samples ship to home. Serves 3.

About this event

Join us for a fun, virtual, and oh-so-delicious Sunday afternoon celebrating two of life's greatest pleasures: tea and chocolate. Grab a friend (or two) and sign up today for this educational, entertaining, and interactive virtual seminar where you will learn about tea, brewing tea, and what goes into making the perfect tea and chocolate pairing.

The seminar serves up to 3 people from one location and includes the teas and truffles shipped to your home. The seminar will be led by experts in their fields, the owner of Open Door Tea, a popular tearoom and café (Stratford, CT), and the head chocolatier from Melt Chocolatier (Milford, CT).

This event is likely to sell-out, so register early. Enrollment ends when maximum class capacity is reached.

What’s Included:

A ticket ($49) serves up to three people from one location. You will receive 8g of each loose-leaf tea (enough to make 3 cups of each tea) and the custom-created chocolate truffles to pair with the teas:

  • Anxi-Oolong Hairy Crab: An uncommon, low-production, specialty tea from the village of Da Ping, Anxi County, in the Fujian Province of China. Also known as Mao Xie, this is a refreshing low-oxidized oolong, sometimes referred to as a “jade” oolong since it’s closer to a green tea.
  • Keemun: a Chinese black tea with a smoky aroma and an earthy smooth flavor.
  • Earl Gray Red: a zesty, organic rooibos tea with overtones of bergamot, the signature flavor of Earl Grey tea.
  • 9 piece chocolate truffle collection, custom made to pair with the selected teas:

o (3) Hazelnut milk chocolate truffles

o (3) Espresso dark chocolate truffles

o (3) Orange dark chocolate truffles

  • Direct shipping to your home.
  • Access to the 60-minute virtual, interactive, tutored-tasting event conducted via video conference. Note: while the tea and chocolates for this seminar serve up to three people, all must be present to view together at one location. One access code provided per ticket purchased.

Tickets are limited. Deadline to purchase is 11:00PM on September 13, 2021. If maximum capacity is reached prior to cut-off date, no additional reservations will be available. Buy now to guarantee delivery and participation.

Although this virtual class is open to all tea enthusiasts nationwide, the class will be taking place at 1:00PM EST and will be conducted in English. International shipping is not available for this event. Please refer to the FAQs below for additional information.
