Exciting things are going on at Tea Studio. This month Whittington’s Tea Emporium (WTE) merged with Tea Studio. Founder of WTE, Kyle Whittington, will continue to run his very successful tea and food tasting events organised through Eventbrite, and he will be running matcha courses (one with Vivid Drinks), brewing classes, tea tastings, and tea and cake tastings. Whilst some of the planned tea and cheese tastings will be held at La Cave a Fromage locations around London and Brighton, Tea Studio has recently moved into a new studio that will allow it to hold most courses and tastings onsite.
Do keep an eye open as Tea Studio will launch a new website in July, as well as expand its tea line. One blend Tea Studio will start selling on its new website is Trinity Blend – a tea consisting of Keemun, Assam and Lapsang, which pays tribute to its new studio location near East India Dock, and to the change British tea went through in the 18th century as the Indian tea market opened up and became more prominent. I will review this tea when it is available on the website.
Today I’m reviewing four teas currently available for purchase on Tea Studio’s website: Ceylon Kenilworth, Green Tea (from Nepal), Oolong (from Vietnam) and Match Genmaicha.
