What you'll learn in this tea class:

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation.

In this course we will cover the basic science behind making kombucha, why it’s good for you, and how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you! All participants will take home a starter culture and we'll have a sample or two as well!

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Cheryl Paswater gives a brief history of fermentation then presents all you want to know about SCOBY and Kombucha. Participants take home freshly prepared kombucha with our own baby SCOBY (“symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast").

I learnt a lot from this class and the teacher was very friendly and answered all questions very adequately. I'm glad I got a chance to take this class, I really wanted to know many things about brewing my own Kombucha and all my questions were answered. I also have the safety net of knowing that if I need further help, I can always reach out with my questions. Thank you!
