These sets been designed and produced by Tea Journeys with the etching inspired by a tattoo inscribed across the back and shoulders of one local ethnic Chinese in Xishuangbana, from where Tea Journeys sources speciality teas to bring to Australia.
Each participant of this once-only course will be first tasting teas as a traditional beverage. We will then be using these same teas to create 3 different unique cocktails for students to prepare and taste.
