What you'll do
We'll start with a tasting at our local tea shop, owned by a connoisseur who hand-sources a wide selection of teas from southeast asia. This will give you a flavor for what teas (or custom blends!) you like most, and you'll leave with 2 oz of your choice of loose leaf (cost included). After our harvest, we'll take a 3min walk to our local chocolatier - who uses tea in her creations. You'll get an award-winning truffle (free), then settle in to blending and personalizing your loose leaf tea with mix-ins. We'll bag our creations into individual servings, then craft designer boxes. The result: San Francisco-themed boxes each with two bags of tea each ready to be steeped or gifted. A tasty celebration of your adventures in the City by the Bay for you or your loved ones.
I am a tea and chocolate connoisseur; four wall-length shelves in my home are devoted to my tea passion! I'm also a professional artist, who loves to help people make things. I created this experience because it is exactly the kind of experience I would love to have: we'll explore a couple of amazing spots in a memorable neighborhood and learn of their delights.
Chocolate Truffle One truffle from Jade Chocolates is included in the class cost.
Tea The class provides 2oz of loose leaf tea for each student.
Tea bags and packaging Each person will leave with tea bags and gift boxes.

Where you'll be
We will be exploring two Inner Richmond family businesses: Aroma Tea Shop and Jade Chocolates. At a time when rising city costs are thinning local flavors, these businesses will delight you with their personality, originality, and superior quality - and our patronage will help them delight others.
