Here at The Farm Shed, we take all our beverages seriously, belIeving there is so much to be enjoyed from a nuanced appreciation and understanding of the origin and production of wine, coffee, beer, cider and tea.
We are therefore very excited to announce that our first Farm Shed event will be a guided tasting with Australia’s leading authority on tea, and the supplier of our Farm Shed selection, David Thompson, on Saturday 25 February between 4-6pm.
If a wisp of mist and a few meters of elevation can profoundly alter the taste of tea, how much difference does and extra minute’s brewing make? Or an extra half-teaspoon of leaf in the pot?
As a tea-drinking country, we still have a lot to learn about our ‘national drink’.
As deeply complex as fine wine, the nuances of tea are appreciated by only a handful of experts worldwide. And this is your chance to hear from one of them.
David Thompson, of Larsen &Thompson Teas, is Australia’s most experienced tea buyer, taster and importer. An archaeologist in a previous life, David pioneered the import of Indian single estate teas into Australia, and forsees a time when Australians will chooose their tea with the same discdernment with which they choose their wines.
Sips and Tips at The Farm Shed with David Thompson promises to be a fascinating learning experience.
