Harney Tea Tasting Contest!
Much like wine, tea is an art recognized throughout the world. In this three-hour tasting, join one of the country’s leading tea professionals, Michael Harney, buyer and blender for Harney & Sons, for an insightful introduction into the complexities of tea. Explore the origins of cultivation, how the leaves are harvested and processed, and some of the key varietals and their flavor profiles. By sampling a range white, green, oolong, and black teas from China, Japan, Taiwan, and India, you’ll learn to evaluate aroma, briskness, body, and other nuances, as well as the methods for properly brewing each type. Mr. Harney, who was recently nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award for The Harney & Sons Guide to Tea, brings years of experience with teas from around the world. Under his guidance you’ll learn how to maximize and enjoy the taste of every cup. Teas will be accompanied by small, light bites.
