January can bring gray, bitter cold days and long, chilly nights, so it’s no surprise that it’s National Hot Tea Month! Learn about the history of tea and explore its variety of leaves, health benefits, types, origins and tea plantations. Discover the evolution of tea, and hear about the future of a beverage that, after thousands of years, is continuing to reinvent itself. Also, peek at unique tea utensils in our collections!

Meet Todd Rubin ’04, Minister of Evolution (President) for The Republic of Tea, which is known for its innovative blends; Tim Takacs ’92, co-founder of Marulin tea company, that specializes in Taiwanese tea; and Romita Ray, associate professor of art history in the College of Arts and Sciences. See below for details about our tea experts. Dive into the lively discussion we’re brewing, followed by an audience Q&A.

Join us live, and you’ll receive a curated list of teas from our speakers and an exclusive discount to The Republic of Tea! Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Alumni Engagement are excited to host this Orange Experience.
