What is in your cup? TEA!

Join WorldChicago for a journey around the world with tea, for our International High Tea. This event will be led by Agnieszka Rapacz, owner of TeaGschwendner, where she will guide us as we sample teas from around the world and learn about the cultural traditions involving tea, how tea is cultivated worldwide, the impact of tea on history, the different teas that are cultivated, and how best to prepare differing teas.

We also have some wonderful surprises, including a special tea cocktail, recipes for some yummy treats, and an opportunity to win a special "tea" gift from TeaGschwender.

If you register for this event before May 8th, all event materials will be mailed to you. If you register after May 8th, you will need to pick up your "high tea" materials at TeaGschwender.
