I really enjoyed the tea workshop, I found out about different types of tea and what’s the best way to prepare it to make the best out of each kind. I definitely recommend the workshop to all for who tea is an important part of the day It is amazing how this rare orchid tea can taste so sweet and yet so aromatically nutty! Almost like perfectly glazed honey almonds but without the distinct taste of honey. There are some floral notes coming through but they are very subtle. This is by far the most impressionable tea I have ever tasted. Consistency is there, the finish is mild and fragrant.
