Please join me for our class on Green Teas. If you have tried to like green tea because it is supposed to be so good for you, but…it just tastes like grass, this is the class for you! Believe it or not, all green teas are not created equally. The varieties are so numerous and varied. This class will introduce you to the cultivation, geography, and processing of green teas and the opportunity to taste 4-6 different teas of China and Japan, the primary countries of green tea production. Following the class, we will enjoy simple snacks with pots of tea of your choosing.
