Come learn about the basics of tea at the Jasmine Pearl teashop! Enter an entrancing tea boutique that will be open exclusively for the Portland Tea Meetup Group. This session will familiarize participants with some of the diverse aromas and flavors typical of the six major categories of tea.
We’ll touch on the processing methods used to create teas in each of these categories; introduce brewing equipment such as Yi Xing pots and the gaiwan; and share some useful steeping strategies, such as how to avoid excessive astringency in green teas.
Tea lovers of all ages and persuasions are welcome to come engage in conversation and develop their palates for the world of flavors possible from one simple plant: Camellia sinensis.
