One of its most popular event bookings in its London Mayfair branch, tea tasting is ideal for beginners and connoisseurs alike introducing  a range of exclusive white, green, oolong and black tea, along with insights into the history, flavour notes and tasting techniques of each tea.

East India Company’s Tea Master, Lalith Lenadora  who has accrued over 25 years’ experience in the tea industry flew in especially from London.

Lenadora commented on the occasion, “I am delighted that our tea tasting service has been brought to Qatar for people to enjoy. As The East India Company has a direct relationship with the tea estates we works with, our teas are some of the freshest teas available and these events really give the opportunity to learn and appreciate some of the world’s finest and rare teas.”

“The dedicated tea lessons are ideal for corporate networking event, client appreciation evening, team-building, or simply a gathering of friends. During the tea tasting events participants are able to savour rare white varieties such as Golden Tips; subtle green teas such as Dragonwell and Buttery Oolongs from Taiwan; rich black teas such as Rainforest Lumbini and Darjeeling First Flush; as well as romantic flowering teas such as Sacred Heart and Thousand Year Red. It is our way of showing that there is a lot more to tea than what meets the eye,” commented Hanan El Basha, Managing Director of the Qatar Franchisee.

Monica and I had a wonderful experience learning and savouring different varieties of tea as well the delicious biscuits and chocolates available at the shop.
