Event Overview

Tea has been an essential part of many cultures for thousands of years. Follow the journey of tea as it grows from a simple plant into a worldwide phenomenon, the second most popular beverage in the world (after water!). Learn how it became integrated into so many cultures, and how tea made the journey from Asia to England. We will be tasting a selection of our wonderful teas, curated specifically to match the growth of tea into its many varieties.
Additionally there will be 10% off all loose tea and tea merchandise following the class.

I am a British expat running a tea merchant and cafe based in St. Louis, Missouri. I have been drinking tea since I was a child but it wasn't until I became an adult that I discovered that tea wasn't just about black tea in a teabag. For the past seven years I have operated The London Tea Room, a business started by my parents, and my love for tea has only grown. I have been teaching tea education classes for the past three years, and am currently working on receiving official certification as a tea sommelier with the World Tea Academy.

    Jackie made the whole experience very enjoyable. She had interesting facts to share about every tea time period, provided answers to any questions asked, and shared a few tasty samples of tea!

    Always a great time at the London Tea Room regardless if there's a class or not. Sampling the tea discussed was a treat, but hearing of the social implications of tea and how it has set trends throughout time was as well. Looking forward to the next class.

    Jackie James rocks! This was my third class experience with her and I continue to be impressed with her knowledge of tea as well as her hospitality at The London Tea Room. It's wonderful to find someone with so much passion for tea who loves to share it with others.

    Jackie is such a knowledgeable and fun teacher. It was nice to learn about the social history of tea and enjoy sipping some while she relayed her knowledge. I always enjoy all of her classes and am already going to sign up for another .

    This was a really interesting experience. I learned a lot about tea in a historical and cultural context while sampling green and black teas from China and India. It was a very enjoyable evening.

    Me and my girlfriend attended. The class lasted a little longer than an hour and was of satisfactory length. We were given two different selections of teas, and they made more pots as the class progressed. We both loved the class and plan to come again.
