I'm excited to announce that Floating Leaves Tea will be offering its first online tea class. My internet customers will have first priority to sign up for this class and will get a special rate as well!
Date: Sunday March 16th at 10am (Seattle Time)
Subject: Taiwanese Baozhong and High Mountain Oolongs. We will be tasting and learning about these two types of delicious, lightly oxidized teas from Taiwan. I will cover the differences between these two styles of Oolong, the tea nature of these Oolongs and what to look for when tasting these teas.
Teas to be tasted:
-Baozhong Farmer's Choice
-A Roasted Lishan, and
-A lower elevation, rolled style Oolong
Materials you need to for this class:
-A gaiwan, a tasting cup(s) and a pitcher/bowl to pour out any excess tea that doesn't fit into your cup
-Alternatively, you can have the whole Gongfu Cha setup laid out
-Convenient access to boiling water
-Google Plus account (I will be using Google Plus Hangout for this tea class)
Fee: $30 including the tea lesson, samples of the teas we will be tasting that day and the cost of shipping the teas to you. I am offering a $10 special rate for my online customers.
Duration of the class: Please prepare to spend one and half hour to 2 hours for this class.
To sign up, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will confirm availability and arrange payment with you.
I am looking forward to drinking some tea with you - over the internet!
