Tea and Chocolate Seminar at Scottsdale’s TeaGschwendner

loose-leaf-teas-in-cups

As you may have read a few weeks ago, Old Town Scottsdale opened a sleek, new tea shop, TeaGschwendner. And tomorrow night, the tea retailer, with over 200 types of premium loose leaf tea, will offer a tea tasting class to educate and enlighten both new and longtime tea enthusiasts. The focus on the class: tea and chocolate pairings. The tasting event will include between three and five hot teas and two iced teas paired with exotic candy bars from Vosges Haut Chocolat (one of my absolute favorite chocolate companies on the planet). Vosges produces chocolates made from the finest ingredients, including indigenous spices, herbs, roots and flowers. Participants will learn about the tea and chocolate’s origins, characteristics of each and how to properly pair them. Attendees will also receive a gift bag containing samples of tea to enjoy at home and as well as a sweet deal for their next visit: a TeaGschwendner gift certificate for 15 percent off a future purchase.

TeaGschwendner ‘s tea and chocolate seminar will be from 6 to 7 p.m. and reservations are required. The class is $15, including the gift bag. 480.686.8503, http://www.teamerchants.com/Catalog/Default.aspx.

    I get confused when my tea doesn’t come in tea bags…loose leaf tea seems so much harder to work with!

    Starbucks does these kinds of tastings for free (I know these teas will be much better) but I think this could still be worth it!

    How neat! Chocolate is my weakness. I will have to stop here and see what teas they have. Sounds fun.
