The Science of Tea
Reading the leaves of an ancient beverage
$65, includes tasting and tea time treats
Chock full of strange and wonderful compounds, tea is a royal beverage with a tale to tell. We’ll venture through Chinatown and beyond to sample flavors, do some study of oxidation and diffusion, and dissect the differences between green, black, and oolong.
We’ll also happily celebrate the grand opening of the new T-We Tea shop, recently opened by Certified Tea Specialist Christopher Coccagna. He’ll give us a lesson in the fine art of cupping and let us explore T-We’s tea blending and tasting bars. Prepare yourself for the likes of Bad Bromance and Madame Morocco, and an experience that will change your tea appreciation forever.
“My day couldn’t have played out better. The sun was shining, the tea was steeping, and city was our oyster!”
