Tea Myth Tuesday - Revamped

Hello, welcome to Tea Myth Tuesday. Sorry to say, I am out of myths at the moment, so I thought I would just do a regular tea chat with this space.

Today I want to talk about the NW Tea Festival and how excited I am to be coordinating it! The Perennial Tea Room has been a sponsor of the festival since we were thinking and planning how to do it! Now the festival is in it's fourth year! And, we have moved from the NW Rooms at Seattle Center (we took them all over last year) to the Fisher Pavilion, a much larger space and much easier to find. More space for people to walk around in, more tea to taste and more interesting people to meet and talk tea with.

This year we are presenting workshops as well as open presentations and tea tastings! Two of these, which are most exciting to me, are the Tea Somalier and Organoleptic workshops being presented by Norwood Pratt, the most knowledgeable tea person I know. The classes were originally designed for restaurant staff and now are available for anyone with a serious interest in tea! Imagine 2 hours with him in a group of 10 - 20 people! Plenty of time to ask questions and generally discuss tea with this master of the art. Check out the website: nwteafestival.com to find out how to register for these workshops along with pairing tea with chocolate, a tea cupping class, a tea blending class and much, much more.

Check back on Friday for Tea Fact Friday! See you then,
