Tea Presentation and Tasting with Linda Louie at the Altadena Library

Saturday, May 27th at 4:00 p.m.

Ever wonder what’s the difference between black tea from China and black tea from India? Or how green tea from China compares to green tea from Japan?

Join Linda Louie from Bana Tea Company for a discussion and tea tasting of rare and high end teas from China, Nepal, India and Japan.

Linda Louie was born and raised in Hong Kong. She has a Master’s degree in Social Work and worked for the Los Angeles Superior Court for many years before pursuing her life-long passion for tea. Linda is the owner of Bana Tea Company, an on-line tea company specializing in fine Pu-erh tea. Linda has studied with a renowned tea master in Hong Kong and traveled extensively through the farms and villages of the Pu-erh tea regions of Yunnan China in her quest to find the finest teas. She has given tea lectures, demonstrations and focused tea tastings at museums, community colleges, public libraries, art galleries and private events.

The Altadena Library is located at 600 East Mariposa Street, Altadena.
