Upcoming Event: True Teas of Africa (World of Tea Series)

Northwest Tea Festival will host a tasting of True Teas of Africa as part of the World of Tea Series on Saturday, May 21st.  

Hosted by Cinnabar Wright (Phoenix Tea)
At this focused tasting, we will taste teas grown and produced in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, and Rwanda. There will be an array of widely different teas selected from the categories of white, green, black, oolong, and a "dark" tea (puer style). Each country's teas have their own distinctive character, and these teas will all be high quality and carefully produced, not the commodity teas that African countries are known for producing. The teas in the tasting will all be true teas, from the Camellia sinensis plant, not herbals like Rooibos, which is grown and produced in South Africa, or Karkady, which is grown in Nigeria and Sudan.

Location:  Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 South Alaska Street
