Last Monday was an exciting day in Steepster history, as we hosted the first ever Steepster Select tea tasting! Led by our Japanese tea expert, Zach, who prepared the teas for us in gaiwan and kyusu, everyone in attendance got a chance to try all five teas in the April box of Steepster Select.
This month’s box was one that we nicknamed “Dealer’s Choice” or as it was called in our last blog post: “Staff Picks 2013.” Why you may ask? Well, because each of the five teas was, in fact, chosen as a 2013 favorite of each of the five Steepster team members.
COFFEED in Long Island City kindly provided the space for the tasting and Steepster team members showed-off their chosen teas. Starting off with white tea (Mike’s choice) and ending with a pu-erh (Zach’s choice), each tea was expertly prepared and tasted happily, with time between tastings to share notes and thoughts. You can read all about the teas we tasted in this month’s Steepster Select blog post.
We think that a fun time was had by all. And by all the laughter and chatting, we think that our guests would agree.
We hope that our Steepster Select subscribers enjoy the teas as much as our tea tasters did!
