Come drink tea with us! We're opening our tea cupping to the public for the first time. It's an exciting time for the appreciation of nuance and depth of great tea. Quality tea truly deserves the same attention that we pay to the process and experience of coffee, or dining. We've been working on a tea offering that showcases a range of processes, styles and origins. With some lovely recent additions and seasonal evolution to our selection, we invite you to come and experience it with us here. As well as the historical and cultural significance of tea, there's also an opportunity to asses quality. We'd like to acknowledge the largely forgotten importance of tea preparation and extraction.
On the cupping table there'll be tea from China, Japan, Taiwan, India and Burma.
There'll be a variety of processes to taste, including white, green, oolong and black tea.
Whether you're passionate about tea, or coffee, or food, this is a chance to appreciate taste. If you're not sure if this sort of event is valuable to you, have a read of the James Hoffman piece "How to progress in the coffee industry" We hope that we can continually be part of more honest conversations and discussions with other people. Everyone is welcome.
When: Monday 19th May
Where: Assembly, 60 Pelham st, Carlton Melbourne
