Service Description

What is the difference between Chinese tea and Japanese tea? Why do Western tea-drinkers often add milk, sugar, or honey to tea whereas Asian tea-drinkers do not? When did people first start drinking tea? What is the significance and reasoning behind the different styles of making tea? What are the differences between the different classifications of tea? These, and many more, are all questions people tend to have when first exploring tea. T-Life’s tea history class will help you find all the answers to these questions. We have been running these sessions for the 8 years we have been open, with more than 300 people attending over the years and enjoying this special tea journey through history. In our Tea History Class, our certified Tea Master will whisk you back to ancient times to explore tea history across the globe. There are three parts in this class: * Introduction of Tea: Here we will introduce the six major classifications of tea (the five major ones mentioned earlier, along with the elusive Yellow Tea). We will walk you through the characteristics of each tea, including how the tea is made and stories of the regions they originate from. You will also have the chance to enjoy tastings of the real authentic tea for all six types of tea. * Tea History: Tea has a diverse history, spanning across many centuries and parts of the world. The second component of this session will equip you with the knowledge of tea’s history across the main tea countries such as China, Japan, and India and how and why this history differs from and complements Western tea styles. This segment of the session is all about helping you discover the development of tea culture spanning from ancient times to modern society. * Current Tea Industry: We will conclude by discussing the current state of tea consumption across the world, and how the production and enjoyment of tea has become what it is today, as well as discussing what the future holds for the tea industry. If you’re someone who has already dabbled in tea and enjoys tea, this is a fantastic opportunity to expand your knowledge and appreciation of this ancient and much-beloved beverage!
