Tea Fact Friday - Report on NW Tea Festival

Hello again, nice to be back. What an experience the Festival was! We received wonderful comments on the new location and the workshops and tastings were a terrific success. A few highlights for me were: the Tea Somalier class in which Norwood Pratt gave a history of tea followed by tasting all the varieties from white, yellow, green, darjeeling first and second flush, China black and pu-erh. The Chinese Tea Terms was well received as was the tea roasting class.
There are so many events that it is difficult to single many out - tea blending, cupping, gong-fu for children, and more. It was terrific. If you were not able to be there, mark your calendar for next year, October 6 - 7 at the Fisher Pavilion. A real treat.

See you Tuesday,

  1. I, too, enjoyed the festival. I loved Norwood's class. I learned so much. In fact, I was at your store today using my newly-learned tea information as I ordered tea. It was so much fun! Anyway, see you when I need more tea. Take care,
