Just behind our unforgettable wall of tea in The Tea Shop at 196 Elm St, in Davis Square, lives our Training Center which hosts a bevy of events every week (see below). Not only has the Training Center created a place for our current wholesale customers to get more training and step outside of their environment for a more focused, immersive experience but it also provides a space for our retail customers (you) to have the opportunity to get to better know MEM TEA and tea itself. Join us in Davis Square for a truly educational and fun experience. We have an ever-evolving roster of classes, talks, and interactive events for you to check out and enjoy. Event schedules below.
BASIC AND ADVANCED EVENTS
Tickets must be purchased in advance.
FREE THURSDAY TEA TASTINGS
No tickets necessary. Just show up and enjoy!
Our Free Thursday Tea Tastings at MEM are a great opportunity to find new favorites! At these informal gatherings, we will sample several varieties of the featured style of tea and compare and contrast the aromas, flavors, and appearance. In addition, we will learn about the region the tea is grown, processing techniques, and about additional ingredients (if any) that are added.
Join us for free every Thursday from 12-1PM.
