If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in NSW. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you.

Move over twinings tea-bags, we’re here to level up your brewing game. Become a tea blending master just in time for the Christmas gift rush, and give the sweetest infusions to your mum, your work-friends, your neighbours, and all those tea loving humans out there.

With the move away from 10 cups of coffee per day we’re all starting to look closer at tea. Yes the old cup of earl grey will tie us over a busy afternoon but really what is missing is that perfect cup of organic, loose leaf tea that almost melts in your mouth. Better yet what if that tea was blended by you!

Learn how to blend, balance and appreciate the fine art of tea blending with Brooke, qualified naturopath and tea blender.

Take your tea knowledge to the next level and learn:

– The basic principles of tea blending

– How to choose which tea to work with

– The medicinal value of each tea

– How to balance the aesthetics of your tea

– You will even learn a bit about basic botany!

– How to package up your tea as a gift

– How to turn your tea sipping into a mindfulness tool

You will take home two of your very own blends to enjoy at home and be ready for sampling because your taste buds are about to have a field day!

This workshop is for you if:

– You LOVE tea

– You want to ditch the twinings

– You want to drink less coffee

– You want to learn more about the therapeutics of tea

– You want to learn more about herbal medicine

– You want to make your own therapeutic and tasty blends at home

– You want to give the perfect gift, but have no idea what that is

Please note: This class requires at least eight students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

A very relaxing class, a perfect mid-week escape. The blends we made in class were surprisingly tasty and we covered the basics of blending/herbal properties well

What a fantastic evening. Brooke was wonderful. She created a warm and relaxed atmosphere while encouraging questions and creativity. She clearly is very passionate and knowledgeable about naturopathic tea and herbs. The venue at Workshop was great. Overall the class was brilliant and nice to be able to take home my tea blends to share. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

Brooke was an awesome teacher! Very insightful about all the different ingredients and the benefits related to the body when putting together your tea. Bonus that they all turned out looking pretty

Brooke was very knowledgeable on winning tea combos and was super helpful! The sheet with aesthetics, taste and medicinal properties was super useful when putting together our custom tea blend in the class and also outside the class! I definitely would recommend this class to people new to tea and seasoned tea drinkers!
