Tea Science Tuesday
Tea Science Tuesdays are Instagram live streams where I’ll talk informally about some aspect of tea science while enjoying some tea. Each week, there will be a topic, a suggested tea if you want to drink along, and a suggested “reading” (sometimes a video).
Live streams will be at 9:00 AM eastern time @leafyeric. I know that time is probably not good for many people, but don’t worry, the streams will be saved and pinned to my Instagram profile and uploaded to a YouTube playlist so you can watch them later.
Here’s the “syllabus” for the next few weeks:
