Our free tea tastings occur every Friday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m. Our tastings now focus on about four varieties of teas side by side, going from lighter teas, such as green or white, to the darker ones, like black or puer. You do not have to be there at 3 sharp, just show up when you can and we’ll pour you whatever we’re tasting that day. We will not be posting the schedule here anymore. The tastings will involve some discussion about the teas, their history, and their special qualities. This is a very fun and interactive way to introduce yourself to the broad range of Chinese teas.
We look forward to tasting some teas with you.
Ever wonder what the difference between green and black teas really are? Or if white tea is really low in caffeine? Now you can find out these things and more. Teahouse owner Greg Fellman will be leading an introduction to tea class where you will learn how tea is made, what the production differences are, the importance of terroir, and you will taste a sampling from all the major categories of tea.
The class is on Saturday August 13th from 10 AM to noon. The cost is $30 and reservations can be made by calling the teahouse at 303-777-CUPS (2877).
We are very much looking forward to our newest offering. On Saturday June 25, from noon to 1:30, we are joining with the Truffle Cheese Shop for a cheese and tea tasting. Rob and his crew at the Truffle Cheese Shop are as passionate about cheeses as we are about teas. We thought we would combine forces and see what happens. We will be tasting five teas with five cheeses, mixing and matching different pairings.
The cost for this class is $30 per person and it is limited to 24 tasters. You must reserve your space by calling the teahouse at 303-777-CUPS (2877). This class will fill up, so call soon. If you have any questions, just let us know.
Ever wonder what the differences between white and black teas are? Now you can find out in a new class we are offering. In All The Tea In China, teahouse owner Greg Fellman will cover the six major varieties of tea, talking about how various cultivars and processing methods lead to the different types of tea. And what’s a tea class without some tasting? We will sample every category of tea so you can taste the difference as well. The class is on Saturday May 14thfrom 10 a.m. to noon. The cost is $30, plus tax, and you can sign up at the teahouse. Look for announcements about more classes in the months ahead.
