Event Overview

It’s common knowledge that tea is good for your health, but what exactly does that mean? Please join us as our special guest lecturer Dr. Raymond Cooper helps us understnad the origins of different teas, how they are prepared and why green tea differs from black tea, although originating from the same plant. There is overwhelming evidence for the health benefits of green tea and sales of green tea and green tea products are increasingly significantly - particulary in the United States. The level of tea consumption varies around the world, and is believed to be the worlds second most popular beverage. Dr. Cooper will provide the latest insights into the ongoing research of the health benefits of tea. This class should give each student a better understanding of how and why tea can be of benefit to your health.  


A Q&A session will follow the class. Additionally there will be 10% off all loose leaf tea, teapots, and other merchandise after the class.

    Loved the Drink to Your Health. The instructor did not go into huge detail which was great because I am not a chemist. However he gave very good information followed up with pros and cons of the studies. Learned a lot of new information regarding green tea and health benefits. Really liked that he explained why tea can't be made into a cancer fighting drug. He did give information from different studies to support why it can be used to prevent/postpone some cancers.

    Drink to Your Health was another phenomenal tea class taught at The London Tea Room. To be greeted with a hot cup Jasmine Cloud set the tone for the class. I knew right away good things were to happen. Jackie Jame's knowledge and guest teacher, Ray Cooper, teaching the scientific properties of tea, made for a terrific class. Great questions were asked and answered much was learned by all.

    The tea was delicious, of course, but there was a lot of copied and pasted text regarding medical studies in the presentation. It just wasn't as engaging as the classes normally are. Otherwise I love the Tea Room's classes.

    What a great class! I learned about the health benefits from drinking various teas. As a tea beginner, I enjoyed tasting six different flavors. I was surprised to like them all! In addition to being very knowledgeable about teas, Jackie James is a delight to listen to! I highly recommend this class & will be taking her other classes too.

    Visiting London Tea Room is always a joy. Their classes, an added value. Much information was shared and we were able to taste the teas we learned about.

    Jackie is always so insightful and has so much knowledge and info to divulge to her classes. Learning how tea can affect health and the benefits it provides is something a lot of people don't know about, and she beautifully explained (as much as possible as she could in an hour and fifteen minutes) all of this to us.

    Loved the class! Nice presentation on the health benefits of tea. Fun to taste some of the different types of tea as well. Now I have lots more reasons to keep drinking multiple glasses of tea per day, as if I needed any!
