Teahouse in the Gallery: Solstice Tea (Age 12+)

December 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on December 18, 2022 at 12:00 pm


December 18 from 9:00 – 11:00 am or from 12:00 – 2:00 pm

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.


Teaching Artist: Sarah West of Teahouse Bakery


Sarah West owns Teahouse Bakery, a Cove, Oregon-based cottage business that specializes in whole grain baked goods, including sourdough bread. Sarah is a self-taught baker who got started on her journey with sourdough bread in a hands-on class at a bakery in Portland; after that she became obsessed with whole grain flavors, textures, and nutritional benefits. She has been teaching popular classes with ACE on whole grain and sourdough baking, cooking, and tea since 2017. She is a member of the Bread Bakers Guild of America.


Cost: $30 Member / $36 Non-Member
