Join us for an exploration of Indian teas!

In this class,  you'll travel through the world's second largest tea producing country, cupping tea from the legendary Darjeeling First Flush in the towering Himalayas, Assam on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra river, the high-elevation Nilgiris in tropical South India, and the upcoming Kumaon region in the north. Along the way, your host will discuss the history, terroir and production practices in each region. Come thirsty, tea will be served!

Raj Vable is the founder of Young Mountain Tea. He has been confounded by the leaf since his first transcendental encounter with white tea in 2010. Three years later, he started Young Mountain Tea to bridge his budding tea obsession with his interest in traveling in the mountains and previous experience creating job opportunities in rural India. He revels in working across cultures and can be regularly found trying to get the rest of the team on board with another outlandish tea project. His favorite teas remain white, and he’s always searching for the next cup of magic.

Enjoy the entire Global Tea Tour series as a bundle and attend one class for free.
