The tea expert also told us that we should sip tea and not “drink” tea. She also told how we should taste tea. First smell the tea and then take a sip and first taste it by swirling in the mouth and swallow it. Tea should not be drunk like a soft drink, but we have to enjoy and sip it. Also remember, we should sip tea without sugar, honey or milk to reap maximum health benefits.
Tea should always be served in transparent glass cups. We always first taste with our eyes, so let it look visually appealing. Infuse tea in rounded glass or porcelain pots. The round pots allow the tea leaves enough space to move around and to release the flavor.
Followed by this we tasted Sublime’s Green Jasmine Mandarin tea. These are premium green tea leaves having the Jasmine fragrance and dried mandarin orange. The delicate fragrance of jasmine makes the green tea refreshing and leaves us feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Sublime House of Tea will also sell some gadgets specially to be use for brewing tea. We got to see some tea timers and infusers at the event too. The tea timers are sand clocks which can be used to time the brewing process.
During the second part of the session Chef Michael Swamy spoke about teas and cooking with teas. He also put together a special cocktail with limited edition tea.
Chef Michael Swamy spoke about smoking meats like lamb and duck. He smoked chicken with tea. He demonstrated two recipes that used tea. Vegetarian pesto salad was served to vegetarians and chicken salad smoked that was smoked with tea leaves was served to non-vegetarians.
Then Chef Michael demonstrated making of cocktails with tea. For whiskey he suggested to use strong flavored teas like oolong tea and for vodka use lighter rose in bloom tea. The rose in bloom is a herbal tisane that combines rose petals, liquorice, fennel, aniseed, pepper and nutmeg. This fresh brew cools the body down and is an excellent digestive drink.
