Planning a tea event

Postby fencerdenoctum » Sep 12th, '07, 23:38

One of our resident directors wanted me to host a tea party for the girls in her freshman dorm. When one of our higher ups heard about this I was asked to make it into a larger event.

I plan on talking about tea production (types, cultivation and all that), and tea customs from all around the world.

I had planned on having two blends of tea per type (black , white, green, and oolong) Once I made that little declaration I was told to plan for fifty guests. This didn't phase me one bit (other than how i the world to brew tea for 50 people at once) until I heard my budget.

I have fifty dollars to work with.

My question for this post is this-

How in the world can I stretch this and have good quality tea for my guests? I get a feeling I'm going to have to sink a bit of my own money into this which doesn't really bother me seeing as that I'll get to keep what is left, but the less I have to spend the better.

Any ideas or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Heh, I would definitely contact some dealers to see if they want to sponsor. It's a great opportunity for them if you think about it.

Good luck Fencer!

Rishi has always been generous with sample product when we do demos or classes. They might help you out. Couldn't hurt to ask.
