Tea: The World’s Most Popular Drink

March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Learn how to brew the perfect cup of tea – while sampling 8 to 10 different teas from around the world. We’ll munch on snacks while sipping – and take home plenty of tea samples. While sampling teas from major tea producers, we’ll talk about how this simple beverage has played a major role in global trade: the Tea Route, the Dutch East India Co., A&P (originally the “Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.”); artisanry (teapots, caddies, chests); technology (fine porcelain, clipper ships); and society and politics (English tea gardens, Middle Eastern tea rooms, the Boston Tea Party). Today, tea is the most popular drink in the world – whether black, oolong, green, white, or blends like chai. And, with its stimulating qualities and healthful benefits, its popularity keeps growing. Come find out – and taste – why. Bring one or two of your favorite cups
