Join Shawn, the official tea taster of New Mexico Tea Company, for an introduction to tea. In this class we will cover some of the history of tea, basics of preparing tea, and answers to questions you might have. We will also try 5 different teas covering a wide variety (white, green, oolong, black, and rooibos).
Each session lasts approximately 1 hour and can accommodate 6 people.Note: The tea tasting takes place on our second level up a flight of stairs. Please be able to use stairs comfortably if you are booking a tasting. We can arrange a special tasting downstairs after hours; if needed please email us.
"...and in addition to introducing me and my friends to a number of new teas, he also shared much about the history, process, and rituals associated with tea. He had some great anecdotes about opening a tea shop in Albuquerque, and entertained even the silliest questions my friends and I could come up with."
