Brisbane BrewIN 2019BrewIN 2019

The annual Brisbane BrewIN is a wonderful celebration of 'pure leaf tea'.

We bring together a specially curated list of tea practitioners and high-quality tea specialists to share the largest and most enjoyable tea session in the South East Queensland corner.

On June 22nd 2019, we had an intimate tea session at each tea tasting table with a small group of people along with three tea workshops throughout the day. 

If you missed Brisbane BrewIN this year, make sure you join us next year :) 

Below is a little snap shot of my intimate tea session :

At my tea tasting table we focused on the impact of terrior and processing on flavour. We started the session sampling four artisan teas but i think we ended up sampling a lot more as the conversations went on.... that's what happens with good tea :)
