Tea, Anyone?

Episode Summary

Our guest this week on Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast is Christian Eck, Assistant Food and Beverage Manager and Tea Specialist at Michelin-starred, Blue Duck tavern in Westend DC’s glorious, Park Hyatt Hotel. As well as being Blue Duck Tavern’s tea specialist, Christian is a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers, so he is able to offer pithy parallels between the farming and production of wines and teas. Even better, he delivers incredible knowledge into the origins and history of tea varieties (Remember that all tea comes from the same plant and leaf – production techniques are what deliver such a range of tea types) and had tons to offer about the tastes and health benefits of the more than 30 varieties he serves at Blue Duck’s unique Tea Cellar, a one-of-a-kind, tea-centric experience here in DC.
