ADV.14 Art of Flavoring, Blending, Scenting Tea Part 2
ADV.14 is part 2 of the Art of Flavoring, Blending and Scenting Tea. Week One explores the art of scenting and describes the 4 primary techniques. It also offers key points for success with scenting. Week Two is an in-depth look at the two types of flavorings – wet and dry and how to use them. The focus of all three weeks though, is really the very hands-on assignments. They are designed to illustrate all the information presented in this two-part class and give you the opportunity to take the dive into the art and science of Flavoring, Blending and Scenting. And don’t fail to listen to the recordings by Bruce Richardson and Gilbert Kendzior and read the notes from Scott Svihula. They have many decades of experience blending teas and have generously made their wisdom available to World Tea Academy students. The course author is Scott Svihula. Click here to read his bio.
