At last year’s Cup Warming, over 50 people slurped and learned about teas from China, India, Kenya, and Japan. Members and fellow tea lovers from several countries enjoyed fellowship and experiencing teas that were some of the best from their origins. The ITCC is a world-wide community of tea lovers of all levels who enjoy learning more about tea through tasting and sharing knowledge. Registration for their current Cupping Event is open to members and will focus on the historic Dragon Well tea from China. All of the 8 samples in the Cupping Event Kits are from the early spring season. Compare teas from traditional gardens as well as newer (but nearby) areas. For more details, ask any member at the Cup Warming or visit the ITCC website.
