What you'll do

We will start with a tea tasting where we will sample a range of teas and tisanes learning about flavour combinations and a bit about the history and production of teas. This will include some Australian grown teas and a bit of background on the Australian tea industry. We will then launch into hands-on tea blending where you will explore approximately 50 different "botanicals" (teas, flowers, seeds, barks, leaves etc). Many of these botanicals are unique to Australia and have a long and interesting history of indigenous use (e.g. wattle seeds, aniseed myrtle, lemon myrtle, dorigio pepper etc.). With the guidance of your Tea Sommelier (tea expert) you will explore botanical combinations to create your own, unique custom blend. At the end of the session you will leave, a little wiser about tea, and with your own unique tea blend in a beautiful glass amber jar, suitable to give away as a beautiful gift or as a keep-safe.

Ruan

My name is Ruan and I grew up drinking South African Rooibos tisanes from birth (in my baby bottle). My passion and love for tea has only grown with time. In 2014, I co-founded Impala + Peacock, an artisan tea blending business based in Melbourne. www.impalaandpeacock.com.au @impalaandpeacock Since 2014 I have been brewing, blending and cupping teas daily, in the pursuit of amazing tea and tisane creations. We stock and supply cafes, day-spas, hotels and yoga studios around Australia. I also held the title of Australian Blind Tea Tasting Champion in 2018 representing Australia on the world stage in China for blind tea tasting. In 2017 I won the Australian Tea Brewing Championships. I've traveled to China, Japan, Sri Lanka and India searching out the best teas in the world.
