***PLEASE NOTE: You must buy a ticket in advance for this event. We will only bring enough sake and tea for tickets sold. We cannot accept anyone who turns up on the night.***

You will:

  • Hear about small-scale producers of sake and tea, the challenges they face and why what they make is different from the mass market
  • Have a brief introduction to the sake and teas from China, Taiwan and India
  • Talk about – and taste! – flavour profiles for different teas, and different processing and brewing methods for sake
  • Have fun in a small, friendly group with plenty of time to explore, discover and ask questions.

To prepare:

  • Eat a meal before the tasting. (You’re welcome to taste and spit as well, but so far no-one has!) You will have four samples of around 50 ml sake, strength up to 21% abv.
  • On the day of the tasting, avoid any using products with strong smells, such as perfume, cologne or strongly scented hair/body products as they can affect your sense of smell. (And the sense of smell of those around you.)
  • Also avoid strong tastes such as tobacco, coffee or spices just before the tasting as they can affect your ability to taste.
  • Other than that, just bring yourself and any questions you have about tea or sake!

  • The tasting lasts approximately 2-2.5 hours
