African Tea Tasting Workshop
Sunday, June 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
About this Event
If you’ve heard of Malawi, there’s a chance this is due to Prince Harry, Madonna or tropical fish. We also have delicious tea and coffee, and rural farmers embracing creative innovations!
Direct from Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Malawi tea is a delicious artisanal crop new to most Americans and recently available on Amazon. Relax at home while Malawi’s Honorary Consul Jordan Price and Galveston Island artist and author Rosa Morgan demystify this ancient crop and guide you through the pleasure of drinking a selection of white, green, oolong, black, and herbal teas.
Much like coffee, tea is a perfect way to introduce a calming and healthy ritual into your life. You might already drink tea, but how often do you pause, relax, and discover the flavors and aromas in each cup or think about the farmers who grew and harvested the crop?
Please note that this event is presented in partnership with the Honorary Consul of Malawi.
Win a book!
Two lucky participants will win books. We have new copies of William Kamkwamba’s award winning “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” and Rosa’s “Between Wind and Water: 1898 Galveston”. You can also watch William Kamkwamba’s TED Talk to learn more about life in rural Malawi.
