In this experience, guests will get a formal introduction to tea and the rich history that surrounds the most popular drink on the planet. Our exploration of tea and its history will lead us to puerh, the only tea that goes through a fermentation process and ages well. Guests will learn to distinguish between the two different types of puerh, dark and green, and between young an aged puerh. Young puerh will have lots a tanins that make it ideal for aging, as the process mellows out those tanins and turns them into complex flavors only attainable through the slow passage of time. Puerh is also prized for its health properties, mainly those revolving around the pro biotics which can help with stomach cramping as well as digestion. The vintage of the puerh is usually reflected in its price, as older puerh's can fetch thousands of dollars if aged properly. We will explore some of the many parallels between tea and wine. Guests will leave feeling nourished with a different perspective and understanding of tea culture. Guests will also get a chance to learn about the proper and philosophical way to brew tea.
