Luxury Tea Service

There is good tea service, and then there is LUXURY tea service!

Perhaps you’ve had a guest who has said they LOVE Matcha, so you’ve bought a selection of Matcha. But, imagine being able to take it one step further and know exactly how to prepare it in a way that completely blows your guest away. This isn’t just another tea course, you’ll also learn how to create your own kombucha, write an incredible tea menu, create delicious tea mocktails and provide outstanding Russian tea service that goes beyond all expectations. Oh, and did we mention we have brought in a Tea Expert to teach you how to prepare a jaw-dropping afternoon tea? All of this and so much more.
