Tea Tasting Club
Are you interested in learning how to use your senses to understand information about an herb’s therapeutic qualities? Do you want to speak from your own experience with an herb instead of repeating what you have read or heard other people say? Join the Suntrap Tea Tasting club.
An interactive zoom class exploring the organoleptic properties of herbs through the intuition honing practice of the blind tea tasting.
In the Suntrap Tea Tasting club, Geraldine facilitates a monthly blind tea tasting. We study one herb at a time, so we can devote all of our attention to the complexities, tastes, and actions of the single herb. The blind tea tasting takes you beyond an herb’s common and latin names and all the associations we bring to those names. The blind tea tasting gives you an opportunity to see the herb for who it is. Skilled herbalists can determine an herbs quality and sometimes actions by relying on their palate - blind tea tastings help to hone this skill.
Geraldine will send out a satchel of mystery tea with brewing instructions approximately one week before each class. The class meets via zoom.
You can sign up for one class at a time or commit to a year of tea tastings.
a note: i’ll choose a safe & gentle herb with a wide therapeutic margin. that said, if you have allergies or sensitivities to some herbs - this class may not be for you. I will have future versions of this class where folks can tune in and observe the practice - but I’m wanting this first one to be extra intimate with a small group of participants. thank you for understanding!
