Talking Tea Live!
To kick off its 4th season, Talking Tea is partnering with us (ZhenTea) for the very first live, interactive event. This will be loads of fun, where we’ll discuss any questions you might have about Chinese tea. But it’s a live event only – there won’t be recording – so join us in Philadelphia on December 1 for Exploring the World of Chinese Tea.

Whether you are an experienced tea taster or this is your first taste of Chinese tea, this workshop will be an enlightening experience for your tea journey. With a quick overview of Chinese tea history, we bring you insider knowledge and information about the 6 tea types: what they are, what’s the difference between them, how are they processed, how to tell the quality of the tea, and more.

Enjoy 6 different teas with us, explore the fun world of tasting grade teas and bring home pro-tips on how to make a delicious cup of tea easily!
