Oolong Class with Teamaster Roy Fong August 23

Mark your calendar for one of our most popular tea classes! Some terrific new 2009 Chinese oolongs will soon be arriving in the teahouse and Imperial Tea Court Teamaster Roy Fong will teach you to brew the best of them in his next tea class on Sunday, August 23, from 6 to 7:30 PM in our San Francisco Ferry Building Teahouse.

The class will cover such favorites as Roy's signature Monkey-Picked Tie Guan Yin as well as several outstanding yan cha varieties from the famed Wu Yi Shan region of China's Fujian Province. We're getting in two yan cha we've never sold before, including the region's most famous tea, Da Hong Pao, so if you appreciate the great teas of Wu Yi, you don't want to miss this opportunity to learn more!

Roy will coach attendees on brewing technique for both gong fu preparation in an yi xing teapot, as well as classic gaiwan presentation. You'll brew each tea hands-on as you learn about its history, cultivation, and special characteristics of flavor, aroma, and appearance in the cup.

Fine oolong teas are some of the highest expressions of the art of tea. Join us for a fun, delicious, and informative evening and a rare chance to learn from one of the world's most esteemed Teamasters. For more details and to enroll, sign up here.
