HOW DOES THIS ONLINE WORKSHOP WORK?
We are holding this workshop via a video call. Workshop Kit will be delivered to your home or to be picked up from TeeMaa, and the join link to the video call will be sent to your email 1 - 2 days before the tasting.
Workshop Kit includes:
- 10 g x 7 different white teas
- White porcelain Gaiwan, as shown in the photo. (if you don't own a Gaiwan yet)
Note: Due to the delicate nature of white tea, Gaiwan is the best way to appreciate it more fully. With Gaiwan brewing, there are so much more aromas, tastes, mouthfeel etc. that will be presented to you! We believe that Gaiwan holds the key to the world of fine tea. ;) So in this workshop, we will brew all the teas with Gaiwan.
If you're new to Gongfu brewing or Gaiwan, join us on our Instagran Live this Friday (6.11.2020) at 11 am, or watch it later on IGTV, to learn how to brew with Gaiwan.
