Introduction to the Art of Tea Blending
Tea blending or scenting is defined as the process of putting different teas together to produce a final product. The aim would be to create a well balanced flavour using teas of different origins and characters. Tea is a very fragile plant with ability to easily receive any aroma, which works against it sometimes during the manufacturing process or transportation.
However, we will be using this fragility to our advantage at this session with tea blending/scenting. Each participant will take home their creation at the end of the tea session.

The founder of ETTE TEA, Victor has a longtime fondness for tea leaves, herbs and local flavours and that has propelled him to craft out several bespoke tea blends for restaurants, corporates & banks. He would be the creator of Novotel Stevens exclusive tea blend, No. 007 Le Charme.
