Just as coffee is all about the beans, tea is all about the leaves—but have you ever thought about what you’re putting in your teapot? The rise of artisan coffee has been astronomic in recent years, with many businesses and cafés getting involved in the trend; however, some companies and small businesses are neglecting their tea offering and are missing out on a huge part of the market.
With around 165 million cups of tea consumed daily in the UK, this is the new trend you can’t afford to miss! The aim of our tea classes is to promote tea knowledge across Sussex, so that you can be confident in your own tea expertise.
At Tea Addict, we know everything there is to know about tea. Let us take you by the hand and lead you down the rabbit hole, as we introduce you to a whole new world of tea in our tea lessons. We will teach you how to refine your tea palate, differentiate between different types of tea and, of course, how to prepare each type. You think you know tea? Think again!
How does the heat of the water affect the quality of the tea? Should you serve your tea in a pot or a cup? Is your “tea” even really tea? You might be surprised by some of the answers you find with our tea classes. If you feel some curiosity brewing up inside you, sign up for one of our tea classes today.
