Taste & Learn
HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT TEA & COFFEE?
Educating your palate is the key. The Cultured Cup offers unique opportunities to expand and educate your tea and/or coffee palate:
Open Tea & Coffee Tasting Experiences: Every Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., we feature open-house tea and coffee tasting sessions. Soon we will extend these experiences virtually, so stay tuned!
Recently, a customer showed up with 10 college buddies in tow—all tea novices—asking to try the Cream Oolong their friend wouldn't stop talking about. I wondered what their reaction would be when they tasted their first non-teabag tea! As I filled their cups, I told them, "Some people say this tea reminds them of a buttery snack food." Then I witnessed 10 "aha moments" as several said in unison that the tea tastes like buttered popcorn.
In-House and Virtual Tea & Coffee Classes: We offer a series of classes that not only provide a deeper dive into developing your tea or coffee palate, but also explore the many cultures that prepare and serve these beverages in their own distinctive ways.
Customized Tea or Coffee Events for Businesses & Private Clubs: We have customized tea and coffee experiences for Fortune 500 corporations, SMU Continuing Education, the Crow Museum of Asian Art, and the Dallas Museum of Art.
Tea Certification Through the Specialty Tea Institute (STI), which is the educational division of the the Tea Association of the USA.
