Pu-erh & Dark Tea Sampling Session, 1-4pm Sunday 12/3/17

ALL SEATS FILLED!

Puer, or pu-erh, dark tea made exclusively in the Chinese province of Yunnan, has been made for centuries and recently popularized in America and the world through media like tea blogs, food articles, and even fictional books like Lisa See’s, “Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane.”

Attend our tasting for the opportunity to:shou2

  • taste higher quality pu-erh than normally found in the US market
  • learn about processing of this tea and its unique qualities
  • purchase some of these for yourself

As “Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” brings China and puer to a wider audience,we will sample a few teas from the location the book is centered on, Nánnuò Mountain.

Not like your Earl Grey or breakfast blends, or even wulongs (aka oolongs), pu-erh is indeed a tea of its own.

Taste, ask, and learn, as we show you how easy it can be to enjoy quality tea.notThatFunny

Sampling and discussion of pu-erh and other dark teas led by Eric Glass. [Actual tasting session from 1-3pm, with time for shopping after]

Never a coffee-drinker, Eric became interested in tea after a trip to England introduced him to English Breakfast and, thereby, launched a continuing study of tea already ten years strong today.  Aged and dark teas, such as heicha and puer, are among the tea types he enjoys most. He has spent a great deal of time in self-study and reaching out to the larger tea community, as well as traveling to places of origin to experience tea making first-hand.
