INDIAN TEA MASTERCLASS
PRESENTED BY JANE PETTIGREW
This full day course will discuss the historical background as to when and why tea was first grown in India by the British and how each region developed. We will then discuss and taste teas from the north east of the country (including Darjeeling, Assam, Bihar, Meghalaya, Sikkim, etc.), from Kangra in the north, and from the various regions of the Nilgiri Hills in the south west (including Anamallais, Travancore and Wyanad, etc.). We will discuss and taste not just the traditional black teas but also some of the speciality white, green and oolong teas being made in the different parts of India today.
