Virtual Handcrafted Aged Tea 101 Experience
*Please note that with some virtual experiences you may be required to purchase an additional kit for the host.
You’ve had tea, but do you really understand tea? Did you know all teas come from the same plant? And that the amount of caffeine does not depend on the type of tea?
Your group will learn about the fundamentals of tea and aged tea from a Certified Tea Sommelier. You’ll leave with a new appreciation for this magical elixir.
This is a great event for teams who are ready to move beyond Zoom cocktails and discover something new together.
Each attendee will receive a tea kit, which includes Everyday Ripe Pu’er from 2011 (1oz): Fully fermented tea from Menghai, Yunnan province, aged 10 years. Excellent as a non-alcoholic digestif with its earthy, sweet rice notes. No-fuss—easy to brew, easy to drink, all day, every day. This kit does not include teaware. But should you wish to add tea awareness to your tea experience, we recommend signing up for our Gaiwan Brewing Technique workshop.
We usually ship out tea packages 2 weeks before the event to leave extra time in case of package mishaps, and 4 weeks for international packages.
We can also customize the number of teas, upgrade each tea to a larger gift canister size, add honey pairing, and add additional tea tasting time to make the experience more memorable for you and your attendees.
