A Tea Party: An Interactive Cupping Experience

  • La Marzocco 1553 Northwest Ballard Way Seattle, WA 98107 (map)

Let's venture into the mystical world of tea together!! This unique interactive cupping experience, partnered with Steven Smith Teamaker, one of the finest creators of fine tea in the world, will guide us through a wonderful palate adventure! 

We'll begin with a brief introduction on Camellia Sinensis (the tea plant), as well as an overview of herbal ingredients commonly used in the tea industry. We will get our palates warmed up by tasting our best-selling herbal infusion (all without caffeine of course at that hour).

Next, we will taste through a lineup of the different herbal components of the blend to understand what we looked for when we designed it.

Smith Teamaker, a Portland, Oregon-based company that specializes in small batch, hand-crafted full-leaf teas. Their approach is to create a unique, fresh, flavorful, and authentic tea experience. With the greatest delicacy and care, they blend tiny batches, package in oversize sachets, and wrap each individually for personalized service.

We'd like to thank La Marzocco for partnering to provide the space for the event, so please join us late in the late afternoon on Thursday, 9/27 at their lab in Ballard for a night of tea education, fun memories, and of course great connections.
