The Chemistry of Tea: Featuring Eric Scott

September 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$30

A cup of tea is made up of thousands of chemicals produced naturally by the tea plant.  In this course you’ll taste your way through the major groups of chemicals that contribute to tea flavor and aroma: volatiles, catechins, caffeine, and L-theanine.  Along the way you’ll learn how growing conditions and processing steps alter that chemistry to produce a diversity of tea types.

 

Eric Scott is a graduate student in Biology at Tufts studying the effects of climate and insects on tea chemistry and quality.
