Virtual Tea Tasting Class

About this tea class

Let’s be honest, drinking tea isn’t as simple as it once was. The world of tea has come a long way since the legend of Shen Nong’s accidental discovery of green tea. Now, drinking tea is a niche sophistication that invites the drinker into a world of self-exploration, self-expression and a form of deep meditation.

With Nepal Tea Collective, the picking of tea is more than its type and flavors. You’re picking a tea garden and its specific climates, a tea maker, and their specific specialty as well.

So how will you know which cup of tea is bringing what to table aside from the information so readily available on our website? How does one taste the tea and recognize the artistry that comes with it?

Find your answers with your tea producer

What you/particiapnts do?

With this 60 minutes class with Nishchal Banskota, Nepal Tea Collective’s founder and a second generation tea producer, you can begin your tea journey from the comforts of your home

In this session, you will learn how to properly brew your teas, take in the aroma, sip in to maximize the flavors, and note the myriad tastes in each steeping.

Like a fine wine tasting experience, one can divulge an infinite amount of time exploring its specific characteristics but unlike wine, tea world is kinder to beginners. Anyone can learn to identify and taste teas like a pro with mindful and guided practice. So this class is an equally exciting gift for tea lovers of years or those who are simply looking to dip into the tea world for the fun of it. The tea tasting session is especially fun with a team or with prospects.
