Tea Tasting with
a Tea Sommelier
a Tea Sommelier
45 mins · Hosted in English
Hi! My name is Katie and I'm a Certified Tea Sommelier and owner of The Monarch Tea Co. here in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada!
I've been teaching virtual and in-person tea tasting workshops around the world for the past 9 years.
I'm so excited to share the fascinating world of tea with you!
I suggest that you join our experience with a mug of tea brewed to enjoy during the class. Nothing fancy is needed- just any tea that is calling to you that day!
We will start off the experience by learning more about what tea is, how tea plants are grown, how it's produced and the harvesting and production methods ranging from Pai Mu Tan white tea, Oolong, Pu'erh and more! We will have some fun tea trivia throughout the workshop to test our tea knowledge.
I'll then share with you some tips and tricks on how to "sip like a Sommelier" and share how to taste tea like a professional! We will learn how to use a tea tasting wheel and have a chance to share what tea we are all drinking and what tasting notes you're experiencing. We will discuss tasting notes and the complexities that each cup of tea holds.
We will end the session with a moment about tea and mindfulness as well as an opportunity for any questions.

This is the second time I've done this experience with Katie and I highly recommend it. She is awesome and it is a fun and accessible event.
We did this as a team event. Katie was amazing: so engaging, knowledgeable, soothing. The whole team walked out happy, and a little more relaxed having sipped tea for 45 mins. Would definitely recommend!
Katie is so knowledgeable, and did a wonderful job hosting a tea tasting class for our team! She was so kind and friendly, and did a great job getting us involved in the class. Highly recommend!
This is such a nice and welcome experience for tea lovers. Katie is so kind and loves to explain with details and address all the questions I extended to her. Highly recommended.
