Free Tea Tasting
The Art and Craft of Indian Tea
December 7, 6–8 pm
An introduction to various types of teas and spices led by Sebastian Beckwith of In Pursuit of Tea.

Sebastian Beckwith started In Pursuit of Tea in 1999 to explore small farms in Asia and find the finest teas available, some of which seldom leave their country of origin. Each year, he spends time in historic tea-growing regions to taste the season’s harvest and select the best. Introducing the West to these traditional teas—and elevating the level of service in the fine dining and hospitality industry for nearly two decades—remains their mission.
