Qué harás

We will start with a tea tasting where we will sample a range of teas and tisanes learning about flavour combinations and a bit about the history and production of teas. This will include some Australian grown teas and a bit of background on the Australian tea industry.

We will then launch into hands-on tea blending where you will explore approximately 50 different "botanicals" (teas, flowers, seeds, barks, leaves etc). Many of these botanicals are unique to Australia and have a long and interesting history of indigenous use (e.g. wattle seeds, aniseed myrtle, lemon myrtle, dorigio pepper etc.).

With the guidance of your Tea Sommelier (tea expert) you will explore botanical combinations to create your own, unique custom blend. At the end of the session you will leave, a little wiser about tea, and with your own unique tea blend in a beautiful glass amber jar, suitable to give away as a beautiful gift or as a keep-safe.
Other things to note
Since we'll be tasting lots of teas we recommend avoiding spicy foods or smoking just before your event to put your taste buds in their best condition possible.

My name is Ruan and I grew up drinking South African Rooibos tisanes from birth (in my baby bottle). My passion and love for tea has only grown with time. In 2014, I co-founded Impala + Peacock, an artisan tea blending business based in Melbourne.

Since 2014 I have been brewing, blending and cupping teas daily, in the pursuit of amazing tea and tisane creations. We stock and supply cafes, day-spas, hotels and yoga studios around Australia. I also held the title of Australian Blind Tea Tasting Champion in 2018 representing Australia on the world stage in China for blind tea tasting. In 2017 I won the Australian Tea Brewing Championships.
I've traveled to China, Japan, Sri Lanka and India searching out the best teas in the world.

We had a great time tasting and making tea with Ruan. We learnt so much about different types of tea, how it is grown, picked, prepared and the best ways to enjoy it. The passion and love for tea was infectious and Ruan has a wealth of knowledge. Definitely a great experience for tea lovers

Ruan is an outstanding and knowledgeable host! I loved the experience, the story, the testing and specially the creation of my own chai tea. Thank you Ruan for a wonderful morning 💕

Bought this experience as a gift for a friend and tagged along myself. Had to reschedule my original booking due to COVID and Ruan was great to liaise with and refunded promptly, so was very happy to rebook. Covid safe environment, expert tea making session and learned a great deal. The opportunity to make your own personal tea to take home was a lovely way to end the session. I can recommend this experience for both tea enthusiasts and newbies.

My partner and I loved this experience of tea tasting and tea making with Ruan! We learnt so much about the fascinating world of tea and Ruan is an awesome host- really friendly and passionate! Such a cool experience and extra fun that you get to make your own unique blend to take home 👌 (I was amazed at how many options there were available!) Would definitely recommend if you’re a tea drinker looking for something fun and interesting to do ☺️

Booked it for a surprise prezzie for my partner’s birthday. They had a great time (as did I)! Really interesting class! Learnt a lot about what tea is and it’s origins - the complex history and taste of tea from black to oolong. Ruan was enthusiastic, engaging and enigmatic - you can tell this is something his passionate about and loves to share with others. It was a really special night! (Plus the take home tea you get to create yourself is a treat - I love my personal blend!!)
