Day & Time: 
Saturday, September 23, 2023 - 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Darjeeling tea is unique and quite different from other India-grown teas; light in body and color, yet, delicious in its flavorful muscatel character.
These teas are grown at very high altitude at the base of the Himalaya Mountains and there are only 87 separate estates in this area.
In this class we'll taste four to five different darjeeling teas and learn about processing techniques from a tea-growing expert.
The take-away's from the class include:
-Why darjeeling tastes the way it does and why it is so different from Assam and Nilgiri teas.
-How the different darjeeling teas are grown and processed.
-Taste-memory of the different darjeeling picking seasons and styles including 1st and 2nd Flush; Autumn Oolong, and several unique variations.
