Celebrate the winter solstice with a candlelit tasting of three transformative teas (each served with a light snack pairing!) in the ACE Gallery. You will learn about the Chinese tradition of gong fu: tea brewing while exploring tea more deeply than you may have before in terms of flavor, texture, emotion, and physical effects on the body and mind. Come to be surprised by a cup of tea – stay for the good company! No experience necessary. All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door and continue upstairs to the galleries.
