May 11th: Art of Formulation: Afternoon Tea, Treats and Making Tea Blends

Posted April 4th, 2019

This hands-on class will indulge your senses as we sample a few key flavors, adding ingredients based on constitution, action, and aesthetic. We will go over some popular combinations as well as some lesser-known pairings. Find what makes your perfect blend and what you can grow in your own garden. Teas and treats (with a GF option) will be served and each participant will leave with their own 8 oz. bag of loose tea. Bring your mothers and friends or just indulge yourself in an afternoon of sipping, snacking and all around loveliness! More information and registration, here.
