Abstract

Tea is the second most consumed beverage on the planet after water (sorry beer lovers!). The beverage looks mundane, but an incredible amount of science and engineering goes behind this humble brew. I will be sharing how different types of teas are made, how various facets like biology, chemistry, chemical engineering are interconnected in giving the consumer the best possible experience! The audience will gain a deeper appreciation for tea manufacturing and blending. And maybe look at their brew a little differently, when they drink it the next time :)

Outline

Tea - a brief history

Different types of tea - white, gree, orthodox, oolong, black, speciali-Teas.

How are they different - it’s all about how they are made.

The art of blending

Bringing all the elements together - plant, manufacturing, science and engineering.

Requirements

An open mind and curiousity.
