A few weeks ago, Veronica and I attended Tea 101 in Lexington, KY. The 3 day class was organized and delivered by Bruce and Shelly Richardson along with their amazing team from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas.
It was a wonderful experience to meet so many people from around the United States ( and beyond! ) who are passionate about fine teas. It was also a pleasure to learn from the Tea Maestro himself.
Over the course of 3 days, we tasted and sampled many fine teas, increased our knowledge about the history and legacy of tea, and of course learned many secrets about the success of the Tea Maestro and Elmwood Inn.
The photo below was taken on our last day together and I believe it will be in a future publication of Tea Time magazine.
