About the event

We're excited to collab with Bella Mae's Tea Co. to introduce a fun, new class that perfectly marries the worlds of fine teas and artisanal cheeses. This unique culinary journey might be something you've never thought of before, but trust us, it's a harmonious pairing you'll absolutely adore!

This fabulous class is designed for anyone looking to spice up their at-home hosting or simply interested in exploring a different side of cheese pairing. Whether you're a curious novice or a seasoned foodie, you're all welcome to join us in our delightful exploration!

In the comfort of the PCS Classroom, you'll spend an engaging hour exploring and savoring four original tea blends from Bella Mae's exceptional portfolio, each thoughtfully paired with a corresponding artisanal cheese. Karen Russell, tea maestro and proud owner of Bella Mae's, will co-host this session alongside our very own cheese expert, Julia Birnbaum. Together, they will share their extensive knowledge and passion for their respective fields, and provide fascinating insights into the featured products, as well as valuable tips on how to pair, serve, and taste like a pro.

AND THAT'S NOT ALL! Karen will send each participant home with a gift bag of goodies from Bella Mae to help jumpstart your tea exploration at home.

After class, participants will have access to the PCS Classroom Gift Shop, stocked with PCS merchandise and a rotating selection of cheese-themed gift items.

About Bella Mae's Tea Co.: 

Bella Mae’s Tea Co. is named after the maternal and paternal grandmothers of the owner and operator, Karen L. Russell. Karen developed an appreciation for tea at an early age thanks in large part to her beloved grannies, Myrtle Mae and Isabelle. Years passed and Karen never lost that love of tea, instead, she decided to bring tea lovers a bit of comfort, peace, and a sip of nostalgia with her line of unique blends. In 2019, Bella Mae’s Tea Co. was born.

Crafted from the heart, Bella Mae’s Tea Co. focuses on serving up good memories and smiles with every sip. Using herbs, flowers, fruits, spices, and loose leaf tea, Karen was determined to channel her grandmothers and provide a moment of comfort to her customers. After all, tea is good for the mind, body, and soul. Each blend is perfectly handcrafted and has its own story that is inspired by culture, people, and experiences. Bella Mae’s is rooted in the simple sentiment that ‘tea is a sip of nostalgia’.
