TEA for Potion or Pleasure – Presented by Gail Gastelu
Tea is super healthy to consume, did you know it is also an efficacious ingredient for skincare? We will taste and compare different teas (Camellia sinensis), learn how it is grown and processed to be white, green, oolong, or black and discover its health benefits for consumption or application. We will also brainstorm unique directions of using tea for beauty inside and out. Tea is often used as an ingredient in recipes too. This evening, we will also enjoy a special, delicious, surprise, tea cocktail! The perfect topic for our culinary event!!
