Tea Workshop with Cathy Zhang
TEA INTRODUCTION AND TEA TASTING (Intensive 3hrs Session, 13th Mar 2016 )
This INTENSIVE 3 hours Tea Introduction and Tea Tasting session is designed to share the fundamental concept of tea culture, tea categories and tea tasting skills - the most important first lesson of becoming a tea master!
In this session we will discuss some basic knowledge on tea culture, tea history, the six tea categories, and tea making process; then the tea tasting on different tea categories will be provided. All the tea we used in the workshop are pure teas without any artificial flavour and colour, they are representing the unique characters of their tea categories. We will compare and judge the shape, the aroma, the colour, and the taste of the tea in their dried form and after when they have been infused. Teas for the tea tasting are as follow:
White Tea - White Peony ( Bai Mu Dan )
Green Tea - Gunpowder
Oolong Tea - Iron Goddess ( Tie Guan Yin )
Black Tea - Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong)
Dark Tea - Shou Puer ( Cooked Puer )
The workshop will be only available to MAX 8 people every session, its just because we are trying to provide the best tea drinking experience and learning experience to everyone, so no one will be left out and have questions unanswered. By the end of this session, you will have a basic understanding of what are the different categories of tea, the basic tea tasting and judging skill, how oxidation affects the taste of the tea, how powerful tea it is in human history and how it has triggered wars and revolution, and why its so hard for us today to get a cup of good tea. There are quite a bit of content in this session and we will try to squeeze everything in 2 hours, please allow us to go over time a little bit if we need to. Water and snack will be provided and you will be drinking a lot of tea to have the antioxidants and polyphenols to kick start of the day!
Light snacks will be provided along with the tea tasting.
