Join Our Tribe
As tea-drinkers we understand the importance of sitting back and relaxing. After all, that’s what a cup of tea with friends and loved ones is all about!
But those little moments are difficult to come by for many parents. Life happens, and between running errands, helping with homework, and making dinner, it can be hard to find time for yourself. It’s one of the reasons we started Camps@Bliss.
Space is limited to 20 guests each week to ensure we practice proper social distancing. Each guest will be assigned a table section and dedicated supplies for the duration of the week. The safety of your children is important to us, so we will follow the guidelines set by the CDC.
Bliss Tea Camp
Tea Varieties and Pairing with food – How can one plant produce some many amazing flavors. We will explore tea varieties and herbal blends from each region. We will explore the botany of the plant, including the history. The class continues with the six stages of tea processing and an overview of the six types of tea that come from this single amazing plant. Each student will taste teas from each of the regions and will learn food pairing with teas.
The tradition of afternoon tea etiquette around the world is the highlights and the guests will dress up to experience full-service afternoon tea.
Monday – Thursday 10 am - 12 pm
Each guest will receive their own tea tin set with two teas of their choice.
For guests who are not comfortable joining the class in person, a tea tasting set will be provided to prepare at home and join the class via zoom meetings. On the final day, the full-service afternoon tea will be packaged for pickup by 9:30 am.
