Why do tea businesses blend teas and what exactly is a blended tea? Learn the terminology and how teas are tested and sampled for potential blends. Look at some simple blends, and finally, make your own! Includes samples of 5 black teas for your own experimentation!
Prerequisites: You will need to supply your own brewing equipment. At least 5 small bowls, cups, or mugs for setting out your brewed samples side-by-side. You should also have some basic tea knowledge, such as what differentiates green, black, and wulong tea, and what the terms "flush" and "estate" mean when describing teas. It is also recommended, but not required, to have a scale that measures in grams (or ounces with two decimal places) for precise measurement of equal amounts of tea.
Please allow up to 24 hours from time of purchase to process payment and send access information to your account email. You can begin the course upon receipt of this information; your teas will be shipped to you as soon as possible thereafter.
