Fundraiser: Virtual Tea Tasting with Kim Bach

Description: Join Kim Bach, owner of Verdigris Tea, for a virtual class and learn the basics of teas. Start with the plant – how and where it is grown, harvested, and processed. Then, practice brewing and sampling teas from the six basic tea categories: white, green, oolong, black, fermented, and herbal infusion.

Date/Time: March 16, 3pm (tea time!) via Zoom
Note: If you are not able to attend the live event, feel free to enroll and obtain the sample kit. We will provide you with an archived recording to view at a time more convenient for you.

    About Kim
    Kim Bach inherited her interest in tea from her Mother who had a tea shop in Park City, Utah for more than 20 years. “We drank tea at home – mostly herbal varieties,” she says. “Being in the store, I got really interested in how this exotic drink became the most widely consumed beverage on the planet next to water. One plant variety could be several different drinks, spanning different growing regions and different cultures – developing really subtle differences in flavor. It’s fascinating.”

    The shop keeper moved to Hudson from Brooklyn where she was a teacher at Long Island University and opened her shop in 2006. Since then she has presented more than 50 tea classes and lectures.
