CORE.05 The Infusion
Most of the classes in the core curriculum focus on the tea plant and how and where it is grown and manufactured. This class explores the process that transforms the tea leaf into the final product – a cup of tea. By looking closely into the three components of the process we will explore what is in the cup and how it got there.
- Name and define the three components of the infusion process.
- Understand how the chemical and physical characteristics of the tea leaf influence the infusion.
- Understand how the chemical and physical characteristics of water influence the infusion.
- Understand how the conditions of the infusion process influence its outcome.
- Name the chemical components found in the infusion.
- Describe what each chemical component contributes to the flavor and aroma profile of the infusion.
