The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane – Pu-Erh Tasting

March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for a tasting and lecture about the rare and mysterious tea highlighted in Lisa See’s extensively researched story ‘The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane.’ Share the flavors and aromas of teas so eloquently described in Lisa See’s book while learning about the origins of tea in China and production methods from antiquity to today.

MEM Tea Imports has been sourcing, blending, and distributing teas from around the world since 1999. We serve over 500 restaurants, hotels, cafes, and bakeries in Boston and beyond. Education and Training is an integral part of our program and is gaining public appeal. We offer comprehensive seminars about origins of tea, tea processing, tea preparation, and tea and health.

In our tea seminars we sample all of the major tea varieties; White, Green, Oolong, Black, and Pu-Erh, as well as an assortment of Herbal infusions. We explain the various types of processing methods and their impact on the flavor profile and health benefits of the tea. This fun and informative seminar can help highlight teas for your own enjoyment based on the flavor and benefits they provide.

Tea is a versatile beverage and is becoming an increasingly popular ingredient at chef’s tables, local bakeries, and behind your favorite bar. See what the hype is all about and feel good too by joining us for tea and conversation.

NOTE: We encourage photography and social media! That being said, you might be photographed by another attendee or our staff photographer. If you are uncomfortable with having your photo taken, don’t be shy, let everyone know.

If you have any allergies, please inform the teacher prior to the beginning of the class.

Enjoy yourself & have fun.
