About

 

After teaching about tea for over 12 years and traveling all over selling and sampling our teas and products our #1 question has been “You’re so knowledgeable about tea, do you teach classes? Could you teach a class here? And when’s the next time you’ll be back in town?”

As some of you might know too well it’s very difficult to wrangle up your family and friends for events nowadays. Everyone is so busy going in 1 million different directions that how could you possibly find enough people to coordinate something that you are really interested in learning about. How can you get that personal experience with me?

So I have decided to create the Sipping Streams Universi-Tea. You will be able to order your tea class online, and receive all your supplies in the mail so you can have your own interactive hands on learning experience with me from the comfort of your own home! Your month long tea course can be done anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access and hot water!

Our first 3 unique tea courses we will offer will be:

  • The Essence of Tea – An in-depth journey into the world of tea
  • Matcha Madness – A Japanese tea ceremony that has taken the world by storm
  • Kombucha Culture – How kombucha works, brewing and bottling techniques and more!

Not only will you get all your supplies shipped to you, this tea program allows you to learn at your own pace and you can review the information as often as you’d like. Unlike a boring webinar, you will have weekly interactive support from me and my team. And it also makes an excellent gift for the tea lover in your life!

Share it out on your Facebook page, Instagram, or just pick up the phone and call your friends and family. The great part of it is, you can to take the course the same month that your friends and family do - so you can all interact with each other online from the comfort of your own home!

STRETCH GOALS:

  • First Stretch Goal $10,000: ALL KOMBUCHA CULTURE courses will be upgraded to this absolutely new to market Kombucha kit with handblown glass pitcher, 3 bottles, tea and starter! 
  • Second Stretch Goal $15,000: UNLOCK NEW TEA COURSE:  The Way of Tea - A Cultural Experience into the Chinese Tea Ceremony. Receive Chinese teas and a Chinese tea ceremony set. Hand-on instruction on how to care for and prepare tea for the Chinese tea ceremony.

 “It was awesome learning about teas and reading other people’s experiences…Jenny was so down to earth, informative and positive, that I couldn’t help but be positive right along with her. The whole experience made me want to learn more and almost wish that it went another couple of days.” -Crystal W.

 “Learning to steep a cup of tea properly is probably the biggest thing I’ve learned. I love tea and now I realize I have been torching a lot of my teas. I’m going to go back and try some teas I have that I didn’t think I liked. Most likely I destroyed it by drowning it in boiling water. Appreciating the subtleties through different infusions is waking up my palate! Last night we learned about slurping. I slurped my Dragon Well tea and it gave up more sweet and floral notes I didn’t notice with just a sip. Let’s see what’s next!” - Christine Y.

Risks and challenges

Possible risks include delays in shipping due to weather in the winter months and technical delays in producing online portion of tea courses. However, the supplies that we send out are available immediately and are things we have sourced regularly. If any challenges do arise, rest assured that we will keep you in the loop with regular communication. We want our tea-ching available in your hands as soon as possible!

Since Kickstarter is all or nothing, we will not be able to move forward sharing our amazing knowledge, expertise, experience and products to the rest of the world. We hope to have all courses designed and tested within 2 weeks of being funding.
