Chock full of strange and wonderful compounds, tea is a royal beverage with a tale to tell. We'll venture through Chinatown and beyond to sample flavors, do some study of oxidation and diffusion, and dissect the differences between green, black, and oolong. We'll finish with tea time treats at a local tea shop, where we meet with a world-renowned tea expert for a lesson in the fine art of cupping.
