In this tea class and tasting, we will discuss the history of tea culture in China. For thousands of years, the people of China have been drinking and cultivating tea, developing a rich heritage of tea drinking. We will taste our way through the history of tea in China back to its origins in the mountains of the western province of Yunnan, through the early development of tea culture during the Tang and Song Dynasty, and the beginnings of trade with the west. A slideshow of photos from Dobra Tea’s travels through China will accompany the discussion and tasting.   

Miles Cramer has been working in the tea industry for the last decade with Dobra Tea, a full service tea house that imports direct from gardens all over the world. In his work, he has traveled to tea gardens in Asia and learned first hand from tea masters about cultivation, production and tea culture. He teaches educational workshops throughout the southeast, introducing people to the deep heritage and joy of drinking high quality tea.
