Private Aged Tea Tasting (1-4 guests)

Are you looking for a fun, inclusive, and delicious tasting event for your friends and family?

We highly recommend our Aged Tea Tasting class, where you deep-dive into the world of aged tea and explore your new favorite tea. 

During this 1-hour tasting session, you and your guests will

  • Learn about the history and making of aged tea
  • Correctly brew aged tea
  • Taste 3 different aged teas

You will also notice the nuances and flavors of these teas that make them unique. 

Each attendee will receive a tasting kit, which includes the following 3 aged teas, as part of this tasting experience:

This kit does not include teaware. But should you wish to add teaware to your tea experience, we recommend the Gaiwan Brewing Technique workshop (below).  

 

Private Gaiwan Brewing Technique (1-4 guests)

We receive a lot of “I am a beginner pu-erh tea drinker. Which tea do you recommend?” questions. 

And we respond with this question instead: “How are you currently BREWING your tea?”

Even with a $1,000 tea, if it’s not properly brewed, you’d be wasting your time and money.

And if you are not brewing aged tea using a Gaiwan, we highly recommend our Gaiwan Brewing Technique workshop to help you enjoy the full potential of aged tea.

During this hands-on class, you and your guests will 

  • Learn about the history and different types of Gaiwan
  • Properly brew aged tea with a Gaiwan
  • Taste the brewed aged tea

Each attendee will receive a brewing kit, which includes the following tea and teaware, as part of this tasting experience.

This 1-hour workshop is our customers' favorite workshop as attendees walk away with a practical brewing technique for your future tea sessions!

 

Private BYO Tea Class (up to 15 guests)
