The Himalayas and their surrounding foothills have long been home to tea plantations since the mid-1800s.

Join our Tea Sommelier, Lily Colonna, and taste the flavors that come from these small estates, Darjeeling, and Nepal, as she discusses the somewhat controversial social history of this region, as well as what keeps the world demanding tea from this ecologically rich, lush, and verdant area.

Tea Workshop - Ti Kuan Yin: The Iron Goddess of Mercy (Gongfu)

Ti Kuan Yin, or Iron Goddess of Mercy, is one of the world’s most famous varietals of tea, grown in the Wuyi Mountains of China. Discovered in the early 19th century, it was named after the Chinese Bodhisattva, Guanyin, goddess of compassion. True to its name, each infusion of this tea offers love and sanctuary, with beautifully delicate floral notes in its lightly-oxidized state, and warm, nutty sweetness in higher-oxidized teas. It is because of its broad, complex flavor profile that it is only produced as an oolong tea, a process which uses time and patience to extract the best flavors out of each tea leaf. Come taste a variety of Ti Kuan Yin oolongs as Lily Colonna, our Tea Sommelier, describes the ritual surrounding such a precious tea, in China, as well as around the world.

Tea Workshop - Tasting the History & Culture of Korean Teas (Gongfu)

Korean tea culture is one deeply rooted in Buddhism and enlightenment. Many of the earliest Buddhist temples in Korea are said to have birthed the tea culture that now permeates the country. Similar to many eastern cultures, the styles are dependent on the processing of the tea leaves and range from low oxidation, in green teas, to high oxidation, in fermented dark teas, each of which is used to aid in easing the mind, as well as the body. Come taste and revel in the experience of teas from Korea as our Tea Sommelier, Lily Colonna, discusses the diverse historical background that has led to such a rich drinking culture in Korea.

Tea Workshop - Ceylon: Teas of the Sri Lanka Hills

Ceylon, now known as modern-day Sri Lanka, was once the largest tea exporter in the world. Today, Ceylon tea is a rarer commodity, but it is still revered as some of the most premier tea in the world, similar in prestige to Darjeeling teas. As a mountainous island off the tip of India, Sri Lanka’s enormous range in elevation and climate allows for the production of many types of teas that are wonderfully diverse in flavor. Come taste these teas with our Tea Sommelier, Lily Colonna, as she discusses the fascinating environment, history, and culture that enable Sri Lanka to produce a broad range of tea styles and flavors from such a small island.

Tea Workshop - Wabi Sabi & Tasting Matcha

Matcha, or “powdered tea,” is a unique style of tea, produced in Japan, which has evolved over the years in a beautiful way with the culture and belief system of Zen Buddhism and Wabi Sabi. Originally produced in China, the custom of drinking powdered tea was brought to Japan around 1200 CE by Zen Master Eisai. Over the years, the process of growing matcha under shaded, careful watch was perfected, producing tea high in compounds that benefit the mind, as well as the body.

Tea Workshop - Young Teas: Only Using the Bud

The botanical makeup of tea is a special one that allows it to stand out against other plants in the race for human consumption and propagation. Even internal to the tea plant’s own structure we find such a range of botanical compounds that causes some parts of the plant to be more valued than others, as they are higher in caffeine, sugars, minerals, and other nootropic components that all aid in mind and body well-being. Join Tea Sommelier, Lily Colonna, as she focuses on a range of teas from around the world that use the youngest part of the tea plant - the bud - and taste the similarities and differences that occur in each style of tea, based on region, culture and history.
