Do you love tea, but wish you knew more? Join tea maven Shunan Teng for MOFAD’s first-ever tasting course. At this introduction to Chinese tea, Shunan will present a tasting of heritage teas that have been handpicked and handcrafted for Tea Drunk, New York’s first traditional teahouse. At this two-hour session, you’ll learn about the amazing tea plant, its history, and the difference between six categories of tea: Green, Yellow, White, Wu Long, Red, and Black Tea. Shunan will lead a guided tasting through each tea’s distinct taste profile, and explain the difference between brewing vessels.
Tea is said to be the wine of the East. During this tasting course, you’ll discover why tea has been the centerpiece of aristocratic life, and a drink romanticized by emperors and artists alike in China for over 2000 years.
