Tasting Events

At Blends For Friends we have our own Master Tea Blender, Alex Probyn, and plenty of tea experts within the business that love talking tea and hosting tea tasting events and tea masterclasses.

Whilst we will no longer be holding public, ticketed events, we are happy to host private or corporate events at our beautiful premises in the Kent countryside or we can travel to you, in fact, Alex Probyn, our Master Tea Blender, has hosted tea tasting events in over 20 countries for groups of up to 500 people.

With an unrivalled range of teas, herbs and spices to choose from, our tea tasting events can be bespoke, informative, interactive and above all, lots of fun for all those who participate.

If you choose to book an event at our site you will gain full access to our ‘Blendatorium’ where you will get the chance to slurp and sample 20 different teas, herbal infusions and quirky blends from around the world.  As well as the opportunity to learn all about tea, you will also have the choice to create your own bespoke tea blend using all the knowledge you will have gained during the event, plus a little help from us!

If you would like to book a private or corporate bespoke tea tasting event at our Blendatorium or at a location of your choice, then we would be delighted to help – please send us an email at support@blendsforfriends.com or call us on 01732 760808.

We are proud partners with the UK Tea Academy, with whom we run a two day Tea Blending course at our premises in Kent. The course provides an excellent insight into the world of blending, perfect for both personal interest and those in the tea trade. For full details and booking, please visit the UK Tea Academy website. We encourage you to visit their website, where you can book a course with us!

Having trained as a buyer and blender with Tetley, Master Tea Blender, Alex Probyn and his highly trained taste buds will guide you through a range of teas in the Advanced Tasting Masterclass. Further details and booking for this class can also be found through the UK Tea Academy website.
