About this Event

Michael Harney, a vice president of Harney & Sons, has been the master tea buyer and blender of Harney & Sons for more than 25 years. He is a published author and educator who loves to scour the globe to meet with tea producers from all the major tea countries, looking for the best teas to deliver to his customers.

Come join us for teas and learn more it. Tea is an infusion made from the dried leaves of a flowering evergreen plant camellia sinensis. Originally native to Eastern and Southern Asia, it is now grown successfully in Africa and South America. Of the four major types of teas, green is primarily from Japan, oolong, mainly from Formosa, black, primarily from Sri Lanka and India, and black scented teas.

Michael will mainly talk about:

-White (Ceylon SilverTip)

-Green ( Masters Mark Sencha)

-Oolong (Top Ti Quan Yin)

-Flavored Black (Cranberry Autumn)

Harney & Sons’ remarkable array of teas are sourced from the finest tea gardens around the world and include pure teas, and blends, like English Breakfast, usually a mix of Indian and Chinese black teas. In addition, there are flavored teas, these have become enormously popular in recent years and are a specialty of Harney & Sons. This is, however, just the beginning of what there is to know about tea.

After the tasting, you will be able to purchase teas.
