Tea Blending Workshop

Learn how to blend tea in Brisbane



2 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $90


Spend two hours sipping through endless cups of tea whilst learning how to create your own signature tea blend.

This workshop will begin by giving you an introduction to our tea bases and how to use their flavour profiles to build your ideal tea. We’ll discuss the detailed brewing techniques for black, green and white tea, and tisanes.

You’ll then be offered a tasting to experience the unique qualities of each base. Once familiar with our tea bases, you’ll learn how to make them shine by layering botanical tisanes over each blend – ensuring a delicious infusion awaits.

In the second half of the workshop, you will have access to our tea table where you can experiment with over 35 tea bases, herbs, spices and botanicals. You’ll have Amy from Tour de Tea ready to assist you in creating your perfectly unique blend of tea, using your airtight canister to hand blend your chosen leaves.

Boiling water and infusers will be available for you to ensure you can try your blend and add any finishing touches before taking it home.

Please note: This class requires at least five 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.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • A broad range of tea bases, spices, and botanicals to create your own signature blend of tea.
  •  Access to brewing materials (and hot water) so you can brew, sample, and perfect your blend.
  •  An airtight canister to carry your blend home and keep it fresh.
  •  Allergen friendly snacks
  •  Tour de Tea’s brewing guide.
  •  Bottomless cups of iced tea

What to bring
  • A curious mind and your passion for tea!
  •  As we offer endless refills of iced tea, we will provide you with paper cups to drink from – but! If you have a favourite teacup or mug, bring it along to help reduce waste! Tea always tastes better in a favourite cup.

New Farm’s own loose-leaf boutique Tour de Tea is run by sisters Amy and Hannah. Amy began working in the tea industry in Melbourne, back in 2008. Over countless pots of tea, Amy was lucky enough to spend many years immersing herself in the tea cultures of Melbourne and Paris. Wanting to share her love of tea with those closest to her, Amy encouraged Hannah to pursue her own career in tea, and together they wistfully dreamed of one day creating the perfect sanctuary for tea lovers in Brisbane.

In 2018 the stars aligned and Tour de Tea opened its doors, welcoming tea lovers of all kinds to stop by and be reminded of tea’s place in today’s society. Dedicated to improving sustainability in the tea industry, Tour de Tea is the first tea store to offer zero waste options for customers, and reusable tasting cups in-store (high-quality tea is wasted in paper cups anyway). Since opening, Amy and Hannah have been passionate about fostering Brisbane’s growing tea culture, collaborating with Tea Masters and local businesses to help spread the word – loose leaf tea is here to stay.

The Teacher was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. My 11 year old niece was looking forward to this for ages and she also enjoyed it very much.

The teacher was so lovely and very helpful with showing us options for mixing the flavour profiles. I wish that we were able to take a bit more of our tea mix home but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to make it and sample the many different tea bases we had to choose from.

The teacher was absolutely lovely and super knowledgeable about flavours and teas! Class was organised and very informative.

Julianne Holbeck Apr 2021


The teacher seemed overly nervous and shaky but also really sweet and kind. I wondered if she acted more confident in her answers and was a little louder then maybe i would've heard her better.

I also would of loved a handout to take home to remind me of the water temperatures for different tea's, recommendations on what blends would compliment each other, and the teas origin stories.

I understand with covid restrictions the teachers were the only one's able to bring our ingredients and water over, but I think it might be useful if each table had a small jar of each item so we could serve ourselves without having to wait for two people to cater to 10-15 participants; also this might allow us to experient on our own without feeling like we're annoying the teachers when they're in the middle of a conversation about tea blends.

aside from that i enjoyed the depth of knowledge and passion the teachers had, the ingredients and set up of the room in general. i felt covid restrictions were taken seriously and our care was taken into account. also, more biscuits with the tea would be amazing. maybe some mini cakes too haha.

Zoe Hamilton Oct 2020


Everything was beautiful! Lovely relaxing and educational evening of tea brewing and tea sipping. Really appreciated the opportunity to go wild trying all the different teas, spices, herbs and fruits. It was a great social event too- everyone was so open to a nice chat. Everything ran very smoothly and I left feeling chill and very happy with my little pot of my very own tea! Thank you so much to the Tour de Tea crew.

Elisse Castree Aug 2020


Amy and her colleague were fabulous - very knowledgable about tea, warm and friendly and everyone had time to ask questions and get suggestions as she went around the tables. They adapted very well to the COVID-safe changes. We got to try a variety of teas, then take a lovely little jar of our own blend home along with a great infuser. A great way for a tea lover to spend an afternoon!

I learnt so much in this workshop! It was really fun to get to try so many different teas and work on my own blend. They were really generous with letting us try so many different flavours and combos, the advice and suggestions were spot on
