White, green, oolong, black? All of these teas come from the same plant yet they all have a different flavors, antioxidants, and caffeine levels.  The goal of these series of tea tasting events will be for you to learn the core skills to taste and evaluate tea like a professional.  The majority of the teas tasted in the tasting series will come from the Eli Tea collection but since there is a world out there I will also include a few other notable teas beyond the Eli Tea collection to give you some food for thought.

The tea tasting will be held at the penny counter top for a small group of 2 or 4 people (tickets are priced for 2 people).  Currently we will offer two seating times on Friday Nights with a Sunday option in the near future. 

For special requests, larger group, or private tea tastings please contact info@eliteabar.com
