I went to this tea class before but despite that, when I heard a few openings were available last minute, I jumped on the chance to go again. Even though I knew way more about tea than when I went the first time months and months ago, I STILL learned new things from Niraj and was even able to provide an additional example of teaware in the form of my travel shiboridashi kit. All in all I would highly recommend going to one of the tea classes if you want to learn more about tea. Niraj is such a knowledgeable person on tea and is always willing to answer questions.
I wasn't sure this class would be so great - things like this tend to be a little textbook and scripted, but it was nothing like that. Niraj knows his tea and talks about it in a natural and easily-understandable way. The whole evening was much more fascinating than I hoped it would be!
Thank you Fawn for your kind review!
This class was informative and calming at the same time. After a hectic day of work and rushing to get to class, the teas tasted, the relaxed setting and the knowledge shared calmed me done and brought peace. I walked way knowing so much more than I entered with and plan to go again to learn even more. Highly recommend this to all!
Thank you Cathleen for your kind words! I am glad the class brought you calm and peace - the essence of tea. :)
I LOVED this class. I’ve been a regular for awhile but this class opened my eyes to so much about the history of tea, types of tea, locations of where they come from, and quality that I didn’t know before. Also got to try several different kinds of tea in various different methods of brewing tea which was super cool! It was such an informative experience and Niraj is very knowledgeable about tea. If you have a question about tea, he most likely will have the answer. Definitely a class for tea lovers and for someone who wants to know more about tea. Highly recommend this class.
Thank you Niraj! Very good teacher and relaxed class with a lot of interesting information. Tea inspection, production of different types, and a good sample of brewing styles. Would recommend to others
