Events and Workshops
Some of the events & workshops we have conducted
Cambridge Centre for Adult Education: India’s Classic Teas
The Cambridge Centre for Adult Education explores the subtle nuances of tastes, aromas and colours that define India’s exquisite teas. What are the basic differences among black, green, oolong and white teas? Why are single estate teas so special? Does geography affect ‘vintage’? What are the rules of tasting teas? Examine all this and explore hands-on the techniques of selecting, preparing and pairing teas with food.
Harvard Workshop: Understanding Estate Teas
Signature estates conducts a tea tasting workshop at Harvard University. Topics include unique character of estate teas, cupping terminology, purity certifications and principles of pairing teas with food.
India New England: Vintage Estates
Christine Walsh, editor of India New England says in her article, Vintage Estates, “Signature Estates sells single estate teas, the unblended product of specific estates. This is where the comparisons to wine begin. Like wine, there are predictable generic teas and then there is the good stuff, bursting with character and quality. Just like vineyards, the tea estates are exquisite in their natural beauty and each has a story to tell.”
Signature Estates at Christie’s Benefit Auction
If you did not attend the silent auction hosted by Christie’s at the Safe Space Benefit in New York, you can still pick up Signature’s cherry-wood gift box featuring premium teas through our website. The proceeds from this event go to Safe Space, an NGO that works to shield and rehabilitate youngsters victimized by substance abuse and neglect.
