Have a few more events happening. I am doing a tea tasting series at Amery Ale Works. The first one is called Japanese Tea Tasting and will be
I will also be teaching two Tea 101 classes, Tea Health class, and Different Tea Cultures class at 9th Street Wellness Center in Green Bay. It is not until February so check back with the 9th Street Wellness Center events page for my classes.
