November 6, 2016
Instructor: Brian Hoffert
Tea Through Time: Historical Perspectives on and Techniques for the Making and Tasting of Tea 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.

The afternoon will be spent learning about the history of tea and the various techniques that have been used to process and brew tea from the Tang dynasty (618-907) to the present. The program will be led by Dan Robertson, one of the main tea importers in the Midwest and an accomplished tea master who has led countless tea tours throughout Asia. The program will be thoroughly interactive and will include the tasting of various high quality teas (a process that is akin to formal wine tasting). Participants in this non-credit verandah will gain a deeper appreciation of the historical, cultural, and aesthetic dimensions of tea. Contact Brian Hoffert for more information and to sign up.
