TEA TASTING EXPERIENCE
This is an introduction to tea, including tea history. You will learn the basics of tea brewing and taste six different teas from our fantastic selection.
Tea covers a vast spectrum of flavours from delicate whites, to grassy green teas, complex oolongs, rich malty blacks and earthy puerh teas.
Creating the perfect cup of tea is as much a science as an art here at the Scottish Tea House and we look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.
Many people are surprised to learn that all tea styles-white, green, oolong and black- are made from the leaves of the same plant species. While the varietal of the particular Camellia sinensis plant as well as the weather conditions and soil contribute to the final taste of the tea, the significant differences in the tea develop in the processing of the leaves.
We tend to call many things that we infuse in hot water a tea. But, technically, its only tea if its made from the leaves of Camellis Sinensis.
Today tea is grown in over one hundred countries to meet the worldwide demand.
