Virtual Tea Tasting via Zoom or Teams
Had enough of back-to-back zoom meetings? Need a tea break? Want to explore different teas with your colleagues or friends? We have developed a virtual tea tasting event designed to fit in with your commitments. This remote tea tasting provides some light relief and indeed, entertainment for your colleagues or friends. A quiz is included with the prize of £25 free tea to the winner!
The virtual tea tasting will be conducted by our founder, Richard Grey, over a period of one and a half hours when you will learn about speciality teas from across the world and will be introduced to four teas of your choice. An additional four teas can be chosen for tasting in your own time. It is delivered via Zoom or Teams at a time agreed with you and Richard will guide participants through the correct method of preparation for each of the teas. This remote tea tasting is designed for a minimum of six people and the agreed samples will be sent out with a briefing note well in advance. We will therefore request postal addresses for participants by email so that samples can be sent direct. Alternatively, they can be sent collectively to you for you to distribute. Sample packs for additional people, over and above six, may be added at £20 including postage*. Just use the Add-on box above.
*On the basis of 2nd Class post sent to UK recipients.
You may of course choose your own samples for tasting at home without guidance at any time.
Tea from Grey’s Teas
Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.
Sourcing our tea
Each tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.
The benefits of loose leaf tea
Our virtual tea tastings use high-grade loose leaf teas which enable the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. These teas are chosen for their high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!
There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our tough resealable packets contain a moisture barrier to ensure freshness is maintained and are specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.
For delivery our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option such as first class post or courier. Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.
