The Steepery Tea & Co - Workshop
27th October 2020
5:30pm - 7:30pm
Welcome to the world’s oldest social lubricant ~ tea. Join Kym Cooper (The Steepery Tea Co. and East Forged) for a unique hands-on discovery of pure leaf tea and small teapot brewing. This workshop will provide you a practical introduction to real tea (camellia sinensis) and cover 3 basic tea types: green, oolong and black. Designed as an immersive experience, each participant will prepare and brew their own teas as we explore and discuss the tea plant, the process and the origin stories of the tea you are drinking.
The focus of this workshop will be tea brewing skills development using authentic and traditional tea making vessels. Each participant will have access to their own set of small teapot brewing tools. We will prepare each of the 3 teas giving consideration to brewing parameters that control the aroma and taste of the tea: tea weight, water temperature and time providing. This method allows us to enjoy multiple infusions from the same tea leaves and we will take the time to learn how to get the most from these subsequent infusions. The aim is to provide the skills and knowledge to confidently brew high quality leaf teas in your home.
5:30pm - greet & fromage platter.
6pm - start
Each of the three basic teas will be intentionally paired with a tea snack to complement the teas we will be tasting.
