(. . . Besides your humble Pittsburgh Tea Examiner.)
In Squirrel Hill, on Forbes Ave., Margaret's Fine Imports offers tea classes. If you've never attended one of Margaret's tea classes, she describes it with the following:
"Experts discuss the origins, types, steeping practices, and health & dietary benefits of teas during class with samples and refreshments."
Sound like a plan? Awesome.
For a limited time, though -- a time that includes right now -- you can attend one of Margaret's tasteful and informative classes for half-price! Over at Groupon, you can snag a ticket to one of Margaret's classes for only $12. If you've ever wanted to steep yourself in tea culture (oh, pun absolutely intended) with other aficionados, but weren't sure you'd find anyplace in the city, rejoice!
Along with your tea session, you'll also get one of Margaret's "Classic Duo Tea Samplers," so you can bring some of the experience home with you.
(You'll also almost certainly purchase something; the selection over there is one of the best in town, and there is a flavor or style for everyone.)
Many of Margaret's selections have appeared in the pages of your Pittsburgh Tea Examiner. Read up on some of them, then go down and check it out! Indulge your senses and learn a thing or two at Margaret's, while this Groupon lasts!
