NHM workshops provide you with hands-on experiences and relevant skills. Enjoy your time at the Museum in our beautiful new garden spaces while also learning something new!
January 18, 2014 | 1-3 pm
Take a walk through the history of tea, one of the world's oldest and most-consumed beverages. You will hear about and taste the differences between white, green, oolong, and black tea and learn about their role as currency, commodity, and cultural icon.
Stroll through the Museum's gardens and find examples of native botanicals that can be used to craft teas. Then we'll taste a tea blended from those ingredients, leading into a discussion of the major Chinese teas.
NHM is partnering with the experts from Art of Tea to lead this aromatic and flavorful workshop.
