Get to know what’s in your cup! Spend an hour with our knowledgeable staff as we run you through the basics of tea. In this class, we introduce participants to the five major varieties of tea and explore the differences between them. As we brew and taste our way around the world of tea, we will learn the different ways of processing the plant, more about the regions they are grown, best steeping practices, and the way that these factors affect the end product. This class is great for beginners or seasoned tea lovers looking to gain a little more insight into their favorite drink.
MEM Tea Imports has been sourcing, blending, and distributing teas from around the world since 1999. We serve over 500 restaurants, hotels, cafes, and bakeries in Boston and beyond.
