Instructor: Hillel Bromberg, Tea Oasis
Tea can be sweet, rich, buttery, and citrusy. It can wake you up and calm you down. Tea has a history that spans the globe and health benefits that will keep you going. It has been cultivated for over 4,000 years and is the second most popular drink in the world (behind water). Come spend some time getting to know tea's delightful flavors and aromas, as well as its fascinating history, how it's made, where it's from, and what it can do for you. You'll learn how to steep tea for best flavor and sample several varieties, including a delicate white, refreshing green, smooth oolong, malty black, and more.
Hillel Bromberg grew up drinking Lipton with lots of sugar and lemon. His love affair with tea began with a rich pu-ehr that tasted like no tea he had ever had. Then he found a malty keemun. When the oolongs entered his life, he knew he had found a home in tea. Hillel is a certified tea sommelier always looking to increase his own knowledge of tea and expose as many people as possible to the delights of Camellia sinensis. He dreams of opening a tea shop where people can sit, slow down, and enjoy a proper cup properly steeped. When he's not sipping, he writes, bikes, cares for his family, and cooks fine vegetarian fare.
