Join Opera NUOVA at Upper Crust Café for a quiet evening of tea tasting, perfect pastries and classical melodies. Tea SommelierTM David Pasieka take us on an introductory journey through tea’s history and production, including a foundational tasting exploration of examples from the Black, Darjeeling, Wulong, White, and Green categories of tea.
