Green, Greener, Greenest: A Class about Green Tea

The health benefits of green tea are well-documented in many scholarly journals.  We will try the grassy, steamed greens from Japan and the deeper, more complex pan-fired greens from China.  As the focus of much media attention, green tea has a broader range of “catechins” or antioxidants that bind with certain proteins to stop free radicals that cause cancer and diabetes.  We will also focus on the unique stimulant and relaxant properties of this tea and the meditational aspects.  Experience 5-6 teas and complimentary palate cleansers.

Note: Please do not eat strongly scented foods such as garlic for 24 hours preceding the class.  Please do not wear perfumes or highly scented products to the class.
