Join Jane Pettigrew and Alex Minakov of Curious Tea, to taste some truly rare and special teas sourced carefully from lesser-known tea growing regions.

Alex Minakov works in partnership with suppliers and tea brokers to deliver truly unique high-grade premium loose tea that is often impossible to find elsewhere.

This is a fantastic opportunity to taste some rare gems from newer growing regions!

The ticket price includes delivery of 6 “curious” teas that we will brew and taste during the webinar.


  1. Kenya – Tumoi Nandi Hills white tea
  2. Vietnam – Muong Khuong Purple Rain green tea (purple tea leaf)
  3. Thailand – Fragrant Rice oolong tea
  4. Colombia – Bitaco Leafy black tea
  5. Laos – Bolaven Nang Bua Saa Dam (Dark / Black Tea)
  6. Vietnam – wild sheng-style dark tea from Suoi Giang (Yen Bai)


Alex Minakov, founder and Director of Curious Tea, strongly believes in supplying only high-grade premium loose tea. He says, “Many teas are produced using very poor quality tea leaves, especially in blended and flavoured teas. Since tea quality and purity is our paramount consideration, we only select teas that meet our high quality standards.

Alex offers teas from all the traditional growing regions of the world, such as India, China, Japan, Taiwan and Sri Lanka, but also from countries whose teas have only been available for the past 20 years or less – or example teas from Colombia, Vietnam, Thailand, Brazil and Laos.

What will I need?

  1. Your phone, computer or tablet to join the webinar via Zoom
  2. Brewing equipment (kettle, teapot etc.) and a surface on which to brew the teas during the webinar
