You will be greeted by some refreshing tea. You will then sit comfortably around a 100-year old carpenter's bench where I will take through a short presentation of the history of tea and how it was intoduced to Malta. We will then look at how tea is produced, and how you can recognise the different types of tea. After that, we will go to the practical session, where I will introduce various types of teas, including unblended black teas, Orange Pekoe, BOP, green tea, and flavoured teas namely Earl Gray, cinnamon, vanilla and peppermint teas. We will learn to recognise these teas from their leaf texture and smell. You will also get to taste them. Finally, we will introduce the Maltese home-made jams, and how jams gradually came into the Maltese diet as a favourite accompaniment of tea. We will taste several of them with the different teas.
Hi I am Claude, founder of Birgu Blue, a Concept Store offering a curated selection of fine teas and home-made jams, amongst other things. I am an avid traveller and mostly travel to source teas for our store. I have just completed a 6 week trip to Sri Lanka where I visited some of the finest tea factories and plantations both on High Country as well as the low lands of the south. I have a passion for teas as well as wholesome home-made preserves and jams. They capture the flavour of the land where they come from and both have an incredibly rich history which has shaped the world., and Malta. I would like to share with you my knowledge on teas, drawn from my own personal experiences in travelling to tea-producing regions as well as the history of tea drinking in Malta, and how tea shaped Maltese identity and continues to do so today.

We will conduct our workshop at our Concept Store located in the heart of the Knight's residential quarters of Birgu. The space is over 400 years old, and has wonderful stone arches supporting the high ceiling. We will sit around an original carpenter's bench and soak in the atmosphere of the place. You will pick up your teas from 'Kitty's cupboard' - a 1950's wardrobe belonging to Mrs Kitty, the original house owner living right opposite.
