      I thoroughly enjoy learning about history and different cultures. Finding out about Tea-Horse trading was super cool. Learning all the details of how tea is meant to be made as well was lots of fun.

      Awesome virtual tea tasting for a work event!

      Ashley did such a great job facilitating this tasting for a work event. It felt like a nice alternative to the typical virtual work events and our whole group learned a lot! I would definitely recommend this to a group as something fun to do. For our particular event, we were wishing farewell to a colleague and it struck a nice tone of being something ceremonial and fun. Thank you again!

      Thank you for the kind words! We're glad to hear that you and your group enjoyed the workshop. It was also great to hear your perspective on tea as a wine enthusiast.
