Awesome, Awesome Way to Spend My Sunday!
Today I taught probably my new favorite class style to teach. It is DIY TEA BLENDING held @ Workshop SF. Workshop SF is a nonprofit that teaches people to make stuff, awesome stuff. A bit bohemian, a lot Rock and Roll, the space in which the class was taught was the perfect setting. Basically, the amazing pupils learned a little bit about tea (didn’t get to bring my TEA 101 Keynote speech) and then we let the fun begin. I setup an amazing “buffet” of teas, tisanes, botanicals, herbs, you name it, we got it! Then, we got our hands dirty and started blending and tasting using our cupping sets.
My students came up with some inventive uses for coriander seeds, raw cocoa nibs, lemongrass, yerba mate, etc and the teas we were mixing today were Keemun, Assam, Bai Mu Dan, Jasmine Pan-fired Green, etc. We had some awesome spins on a classic chai as well as some herbal infusions that were just all around beautiful. Great job everyone!
