Experiences: Explore Tea & Chocolate and the Argentinian Tea Country

Tea Drunk partnered with the bean-to-bar masters at Dandelion Chocolate to bring an elevated tasting experience to connoisseurs. The interactive virtual class – taking place on Jan. 19 – will include a carefully curated flight of five distinctive chocolate bars paired with five unique and authentic loose-leaf teas.

The upcoming class will introduce participants to the skill of fine tasting and pairing – the specialized techniques, flavors to look for and pairing tips.

Participants will learn how to identify flavor families, understand how flavors are developed, and they’ll discover why they are paired together.

According to Tea Drunk, tea and chocolate have a lot of cross-over. The company noted that terroir plays a massive role in the flavors, value and quality of the final product.

In The Field: A Course In Argentinian Tea Country

“In The Field: A Course In Argentinian Tea Country” is another Tea Drunk experience/trip that brings together three specialty tea companies from different countries in the Americas – Tea Drunk (N.Y.C.), Soy Te (Guadalajara) and Pei Chen Tea Palace (Buenos Aires). The immersive experience will be 40-hours of education, focusing on fundamental tea topics like terroir, cultivar and tea processing.

During the course – which runs from Feb. 21 to Feb. 27 – participants will get their “hands dirty” working alongside local tea farmers and picking and processing their own teas, under the instruction of tea expert Shunan Teng, a Ted-ED educator for The History of Tea.

Like many places globally, Argentina’s tea industry has completely industrialized tea processing in giant factories, according to Tea Drunk. The company noted: “Families that grow tea make cents on the dollar for their year-round work. A major goal of the course is to help families re-learn how to make tea like their grandparents used to when they immigrated in the 1930s, hoping it will cause an economic revolution for them. With this reinvigorated industrial knowledge, they will not only be able to make a living but be able to avoid uprooting their tea plantations.”
