Join Vue de Monde's first Tea Sommelier Sarah Cowell, as she leads you through the six major tea styles over two hours. In this session, you will taste and explore white, green, oolong, black, pu'erh - and the rare and little known yellow tea.
Discover how and where tea is grown, how it is harvested and processed - and how different harvesting and processing methods can produce such immensely different teas.
Learn why the teas differ, how to taste them and how to brew each tea differently to bring out their best characteristics. Sarah will guide you on a sensory journey to experience tea in a way unlike you have ever experienced it before.
Drawing on her learnings from tea farms and with tea masters in Taiwan, Korea and Japan, Sarah will open the door to discovering that tea is so much more than just a beverage.
Limited to 8 people, this intimate group session allows for ample opportunity to ask questions and interact with one of Australia's leading Tea Sommeliers.
Held at Storm in a Teacup - Australia's only Tea Bar showcasing specialty teas from across the world - you will discover this charming venue as you sip and learn about the beautiful world of specialty teas.
