Flavour Geeks by Casa De Cha

On Thursday the 9th of May we are hosting an event with our partners @specialtycoffeecurators in Marrickville. This is not just a cupping/tasting event this is a call to action for specialty coffee professionals. Because, truth is, you specialty businesses, restaurants & cafes. You’re responsible for more than just coffee.
Specialty tea consumption is on the rise world wide, and although Australia is a world leader in coffee quality & service, tea unfortunately has become an afterthought, an ancillery item. Often what is offered (even in some high-end establishments) is a tea bag or some other low-quality supermarket commodity product. The customer in 2019, is discerning, they don’t want to be sold to. As it is with wine or coffee they want to hear the origin story, and they want to see passion and knowledge for the product your offering. There is a huge opportunity for business owners to offer a seasonally curated tea selection as your point of difference, while adding authenticity to your menu.
Join us as we take you on a journey into the wonderful world of specialty tea. Explore with us the similarities and contrasts between coffee and tea through taste, touch and smell as we go through the seasons and regions of a product that’s constantly in flux. It’s time for us to elevate specialty tea and build a bridge between our two worlds. Because at the end of the day, we’re all just flavour geeks.
