Interview with a Tea Teacher

Posted by     Tea Culture      1 Comments  views (2055)

Ms. Cymantia Tomlinson recently taught a course called "A Tea Experience, Jamaican Style". Students who took this course learned about the healing properties of various bush teas and created their own signature blends using exotic spices and organic ingredients. They were also able to sample delectable Jamaican desserts as part of the experience.

I was not able to attend, but Ms. Tomlinson was kind enough to let me interview her and share her passion for tea with all of you. Enjoy our conversation!

I will admit that cooking for me personally can be a challenge. I'm more likely to blow something up, set something on fire, or burn whatever I'm trying to bake to a crisp than I am to actually produce something edible. However, something I've been dying to try involves our favorite thing on this website: tea. Baking with tea can be a challenge, especially if you're inept when it comes to cooking like me. However, the finished product could yield a delicious, tea infused treat with a vibrant flavor and a lovely taste.

One of my favorite blogs, Cupcake Project, luckily has posted a guide to getting the right flavor and the right intensity in your tea dessert.

The smell of ginger tea has defined my college career. Living and socializing mainly with international students from China in my time as a college student, I've gotten used to the sharp smell and spicy taste of the tea that really isn't strictly a tea. While this drink obviously isn't like more traditional teas in that it's made from a root rather than tea leaves, I feel it's a must try for anyone who enjoys tea. According to Chinese folklore, the tea is good for coughing and colds, as it has a "warm" property. In China, the tea is usually made by boiling peeled ginger root and can have brown sugar added to it according to preference.
