„The history & ceremony of the English Afternoon TeaOr: Is the tea bag the death of the tea culture?”
The English tea culture is centuries old and beloved by many. At the Regent Berlin tea enthusiasts are guided and indulged by Roland Pröh, a knowledgeable professional. Afew years back, Roland was awarded with the prestigious title TeaMaster Gold and now welcomes his guests with friendly competence and warm professionalism. He prides himself in his detailed consultation with his guests and in the perfect preparation of the chosen tea. “Our guests are encouraged to smell the different teas before making their choice. During the preparation, the ideal water temperature is just as important as the exact brewing time. Only then can the tea develop its full scent, the nuances of its flavours and either its invigorating or calming effects at its best.”
Every year Roland Pröh spends some time at sea. He travels on the prestigious cruise liners MS Europa and MS Europa II and lectures during exclusive tea seminars. And, depending on the route of the cruise liner, Roland accompanies guests during excursions to various tea plantations.
This year, Roland started the Regent Tea Academy where he introduces you to the various do’s and don’ts when handling different kinds of teas and to explain their often astonishing history. You will participate in a tea degustation, learn to distinguish between the varieties and learn many interesting facts from the world of tea. To round off an engaging afternoon, you are invited to enjoy the Royal Afternoon Tea. It is served in style on Meissner china by the TeaMaster himself in our Tea & Lobby Lounge with its open fireplace and live piano music.
