Tea: The journey from plant to your cup.
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 :)
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.
An open mind and curiousity.
I am a materials and process scientist by trade, currently working for the largest tea company in the world. I am passionate about tea and food, in general and i love sharing what i know in a simple, fun way! When I’m not working, I am either experimenting with various cuisines in my kitchen, or making sure that our son and dog do not tear down our home. I also run a bit.
