Sundays at the Woods: Tea Tasting

February 9, 2020 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

The Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center

1 Sisters of Providence
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN 47876


Are you a tea lover? Would you like to up your tea IQ? This is a great opportunity to learn more about tea and where it is grown worldwide.

We will try several types of teas and learn the art of brewing, the differences in tea cultures and new trends in tea.

Sister Paula said there will be at least six different teas set up for taste-testing.

“In the United States, we often plop a tea bag in some hot water and call it ‘tea,’” Sister Paula said. “But in other cultures, especially in Japan, tea is a ritual, a ceremony, a deliberate and mindful activity.

“And in England, as in some other European countries, afternoon tea – sometimes mistakenly called ‘high tea’ – is served with small sandwiches and other treats.”

Come and relax with a nice cup of tea!

Registration fee $10 includes tea and crumpets.
