Our tea making workshop is back by popular demand! This time, with a guided tour of our shiny new Funan urban farm stirred in!
Tea has been valued for generations for its rich flavour and healing properties, beyond just being a thirst-quenching refreshment. While our understanding of tea is commonly associated with Chinese tea varieties like Pu’er, English tea types like Earl Grey, or even popular beverages like Teh Ping and Ice Lemon Tea, these are just the tip of the iceberg.
Many plants that grow well locally can also be brewed into wonderful teas, some even with healing properties. Blue Butterfly Pea, Indian Borage, and even the ubiquitous Mint can be combined with hot water to amazing effect. And in this workshop, we share the knowledge of growing your own herbs and edible flowers to brew natural, non-caffeinated teas.
During this workshop, take a guided tour of our new Funan farm. Following the tour, cool off at the cozy WeWork 109 North Bridge Road (Funan) facility and take part in the tea-making component. Light bites will also be included. Expect to learn about:
– Different edible herbs and flowers that can be used for teas. (Many of which you would have seen growing at the Funan farm!).
– How to harvest, dry and brew plants for tea.
– How to grow herbs such as Lemongrass, Pandan, Tarragon, Mint, Blue Pea Flower.
This workshop also includes a hands-on portion, where you will:
– Brew and sample different teas grown locally and pesticide-free at our farm.
– Use your new understanding of local herbs to combine new tea flavours to savour and share with the class.
This workshop is designed for young adults and adults aged 13 and above.
