BLENDING TEAS FOR HEALTH & WELLNESS
Do you love tea that tastes amazing? Do you love feeling awesome? Perfect – this is the workshop for you. Think of it like a wine tasting class, except way less pretentious. Learn about the wide palette of herbs and spices at your disposal and how they can transform your health.
Taste, smell and mix your way to a perfect tea blend for you. Learn about the actions of individual herbs and explore ways to combine them to craft the perfect cup of tea to fit your mood, condition, constitution, and environment. We will experiment blending for different energetics, actions, and layers of flavor.
We'll cover flavors, steep times, water temperatures, and herbal actions/indications. You'll learn to make tasty medicinal drinks easily infused at home as we enjoy snacks and spiked tea cocktails. Also included in the price is a small assortment of dried teas for you to play with at home!
