Hosted and presented by tea knowledge expert Ellen Kanner, owner of Dobrá Tea, Portland.
We’ll explore tea from origin, made from centuries-old traditions, passed down within families, generation to generation. Teas that come from the hillsides, mountains and valleys of the tea countries of Asia and beyond. Teas from each of the six classes – white, yellow, green, oolong, black and pu-er – will be explored.
We’ll have several for you to taste, share some history and technique, traditions, how to taste tea and how to make selections going forward based on quality, comparable similarities, and personal taste. This is not a class covering herbal teas or teas with fruit, flowers or chocolate, but teas with unique characteristics all on their own.
Opportunity to purchase teas from Dobra will be available after the tasting.
