Hudson Area Library Fundraiser: Virtual Tea Tasting with Kim Bach

The Hudson Area Library is hosting a virtual fundraiser event. Join Kim Bach, owner of Verdigris Tea, for a virtual class and learn the basics of teas. Start with the plant – how and where it is grown, harvested, and processed. Then, practice brewing and sampling teas from the six basic tea categories: white, green, oolong, black, fermented, and herbal infusion.

Once enrolled, present your receipt at Verdigris Tea (135 Warren – corner of Warren and 2nd Street) to pick up your sample kit containing .5 oz. of 6 different teas, a tea infuser basket, tea timer, instruction sheet, and 10% discount coupon to use during a subsequent visit – all included with the class fee. The library will send you the Zoom link to attend the virtual tea time event.

Each kit contains:

  • .5 oz. of each of these teas for brewing: Pai Mu Tan (white), Organic Sencha (green), Ti Kuan Yin (oolong), Tarajulie Assam (black), Immortal Nectar (pu-erh), and Fairytale Blend (herbal)
  • Tea Infuser basket
  • Tea timer
  • Instruction Sheet
  • Coupon good for 10% discount against one-time subsequent purchase

Participants must have:

  • Hot water source
  • Teacup
  • Teaspoon
  • Saucer to rest wet infuser on
  • Small Bowl to empty wet tea leaves into
  • Pen & Notepad

Your $25 fee will completely benefit the library. Thank you to Kim Bach for donating her time and supplies in support of the library.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 / 3pm (tea time!)
