2021-01-27 Virtual Program - The World of Tea

January is National Hot Tea Month! Get an introduction to the world of loose-leaf tea; from tea plant to teacup with tea enthusiast Nina Androski. She will guide us through the history of tea, the 5 main types of teas, how to brew the perfect cup and the wellness benefits of drinking tea.

Nina Androski is a Brand Ambassador for Tealightful Tea. She started studying and learning about loose-leaf tea in 2006 and completed an 8-week online tea certification course from Tealightful. She attended the 2015 Coffee & Tea Festival in Valley Forge, PA and several tea workshops there to further her tea knowledge including one entitled Afternoon Tea Made Easy with Lorna Reeves, editor of TeaTime Magazine. In 2017, she participated in a Japanese tea ceremony with Kuniko Yamamoto from Osaka, Japan at Ramapo College. On a recent trip to South Carolina, she toured the only working tea plantation in North America, The Charleston Tea Plantation, (owned by the Bigelow family) where she saw thousands of tea bushes up close and personal. A dream come true for her!  

Tea is something Nina drinks every single day. Half of her pantry is filled with a variety of loose-leaf teas and tea accessories. She uses her daily teatime as a way to slow down, be mindful and focus on the present moment. 

Registration is required. 

On the day before the program you will be sent the Zoom meeting information by email.  Please note that if you are using Zoom on a tablet or smartphone you will need to download the Zoom app.
