|Wisconsin Fermentation Fest|
I am very excited to announce that I will be taking part in the Wisconsin Fermentation Fest: A Live Culture Convergence, coming up next month in Reedsburg, Wisconsin October 2-11, 2015. The festival is one part food and one part entertainment. As for the food:
"There's something brewing in the crocks, kettles and jugs...if it can be cultured or fermented, you'll sample it!"

And then we have the "culture" as in arts. This is where Wisconsin Weirdness is on display with a self-guided 50 miles of rural road and farm art. And performances like "Clarinets in the Cows." That's right, pianos in the middle of a hayfield.

My portion of the festival is a class on puerh tea called
"Aged Sheng: The Whiskey of Tea"
Sunday, October 4, 1-3 pm
The class will cover basics of puerh drinking and storage, specifically focusing on crock storage because my audience and the festival are focused on farm-style fermentation. During the class I will to do a full tea tasting of fresh, aged and post-fermented teas. Plan to leave somewhat tea drunk.

I am really pleased to announce that teas I will serve, and take-home gift samples include teas provided by white2tea.com. Wisconsin is fortunate and proud that one of our own has one of the best online tea companies in the world.
