Our October origin trip took us to the mountainous world of Taiwan, the land of oolong. Join us for a talk by Ian Tartasky (our Marketing Director) in which we’ll discuss Taiwanese culture and terrain, and how that directly influences the production of Taiwanese tea. All while tasting some of the extremely rare treasures that we smuggled back in our carry-ons.
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. Education and Training is an integral part of our program and is gaining public appeal. We offer comprehensive seminars about origins of tea, tea processing, tea preparation, and tea and health.
In our tea seminars we sample all of the major tea varieties; White, Green, Oolong, Black, and Pu-Erh, as well as an assortment of Herbal infusions. We explain the various types of processing methods and their impact on the flavor profile and health benefits of the tea. This fun and informative seminar can help highlight teas for your own enjoyment based on the flavor and benefits they provide.
