Disregard any preconceived notions about tea and join Fox & Squirrel as we team up with Camden’s (and London’s) longstanding experts on real tea, chinalife, for a journey into a far more complex and exciting tea experience than that of traditional cream teas and twee doilies.
For chinalife, tea is a lifelong adventure as there are thousands of pure tea cultivars just as there are thousands of different tea producers. All their tea is hand selected and the result is something that is truly extraordinary.
Set over 2 hours, Don Mei, owner and passionate tea apostle, will be giving a tea talk and tasting, learning about its health benefits, history, cultivation and the incredible variety of flavours tea provides. Guests will be sampling cultivars from all over the world, including teas made from 1000 year-old tea trees and teas from chinalife’s private collection – teas very rarely seen in or outside of China.
As part of this special tea lecture, for the price of a ticket, chinalife are giving Fox & Squirrel guests a Silver membership, which entitles them to a lifetime 5% discount on all chinalife’s teas, as well as a 10% off on all purchases on the day. In addition, Fox & Squirrel is offering a 20% discount on our Camden Food Tour, which takes food from the ethnic populations that have made Camden their home.
