Amazing learning experience - also for children!

Amazing learning experience - also for children!

It was my second time to go to the tea pairing workshop, but this time I brought my family (Husband and 2 children). Even though, it was my second time, I have learned something new again.

Vivian is an amazing, enthusiastic and passionate teacher. She is highly knowledgable and very engaging. Listening to her and feeling her love for tea, makes one just want to drink tea only.

My 12 years old son had so much fun, especially with the food pairing, he would like to go back for his birthday for level 2 session. (ˆ_ˆ)

I highly recommend to join the workshop to gain a better understanding and appreciation of tea.
Wonderful tea experience

The tea tasting is simply brilliant and was exactly what I was looking for. Vanessa is highly knowledgeable and engaging. Her session was a well-structured and practical crash-course in everything you’d want to know about tea. I learnt loads!

She showed us how to brew and serve tea using both a gaiwan set and a teapot, as well as talking us through the different kinds of tea as we tasted them. The time flew by and the session was really fun, even for my girlfriend who doesn’t like tea. I strongly recommend it for all, both tea lovers and non-tea lovers alike.

Before leaving, we picked out some beautiful souvenirs to bring home. I’d give more than 5 stars, if I could, as it’s a great experience.
Perfect for tea enthusiasts of all levels!

My friend and I did a tea tasting workshop at MingCha a few weeks ago and we had a great time learning about the different types of Chinese tea and how they were made differently.

Vivian, the founder of MingCha, was our host and she has a very extensive knowledge of tea and its history, her enthusiasm for tea is one of a kind. She was an absolute joy to talk to, and her playfulness and open mindedness made us feel very much at ease throughout the whole workshop. She also encouraged us to let our minds flow freely to fully explore the flavors of each tea. I’ve always been very fond of MingCha’s tea and this workshop was an eye-opening experience as we get to learn the proper way to brew different kinds of tea, we got to learn the difference between the tea trees & tea leaves, and the way they were made. Vivian’s creativity also shone when it comes to pairing the tea with different types of little sweet treats, she brought the tea tasting to another level, and left me thinking about how we can elevate tea differently when it comes to pairing with food.

As you can tell, my passion & respect for tea has grown even more after this workshop! We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this tea workshop to tea enthusiasts of all levels! Thank you again for the wonderful time, Vivian!
5 stars tea experience
