Tea for You, and You for Tea
September SAHS Program
Camellia sinensis has been used by humans for thousands of years as a medicinal herb, ceremonial element, legal
tender, social lubricant, and more. This program will present the tea-ways of today and how they carry the herb forward
into a 2010 United States. We'll look at tea tools and methods, their pros and cons ... plus how to easily decaffeinate
our tea at home. We will examine the dichotomy of tea connoisseurship vs. an explosion of flavored blends. There will
be Q & A time, and of course, tea time. Pure leaf, classic, single origin teas will be featured for your tasting pleasure.
Tea service will include Dax's best South Texas rendition of Chinese gongfu chadao, as well as the more familiar Western
or European manner. Hang on to your cup(s)!
