Is it your cup of tea or not?
‘Tasting tea? I’ve been doing all my life – why do I need you telling me how to taste my tea?’ – we hear you say. Tea tasting is a skill. Thanks to our tea expert Philip Augustyński from Class 5, we learned how to recognise the key flavour notes and identify different tea blends to get the most from your tea experience. We had the exclusive opportunity to embrace numerous blends to develop a full understanding of what tea drinking truly is. We had a go at Matcha Japanese green tea, red teas, black teas, white teas, fruit teas as well as Rooibos teas.
However, before we embarked on the tea tasting procedures, Philip walked us through tea is grown and how it’s processed. Eventually, from mere ‘tea drinkers’ we progressed to a whole new level of awareness – ‘tea cuppa lovers’.
And yes, it is our cup of tea 🙂
