May 20, 2021 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Join the founders of Impala and Peacock Ruan and Sarah, as they facilitate a tea blending workshop
About the Workshop
We will start with a tea tasting where we will sample a range of teas and tisanes learning about flavour combinations and a bit about the history and production of teas. This will include some Australian grown teas and a bit of background on the Australian tea industry.
We will then launch into hands-on tea blending where you will explore different "botanicals" (teas, flowers, seeds, barks, leaves etc). Many of these botanicals are unique to Australia and have a long and interesting history of indigenous.
With the guidance of your Tea Sommelier (tea expert) you will explore botanical combinations to create your own, unique custom blend. At the end of the session you will leave, a little wiser about tea, and with your own unique tea blend in a beautiful glass amber jar, suitable to give away as a beautiful gift or as a keep-safe.
