This course was very useful to me to understand what goes into formulating tea blends. It was fun to create my own breakfast blend of black teas. I thoroughly enjoyed blending various botanicals into tea and learning how to determine a formula between percentages and resulting grams. I feel more comfortable being able to create even more blends on my own for my own pleasure. I can turn my own kitchen into a tea science lab.
I was less excited about this course than some of the tea based courses, but I actually found it very interesting and informative and really will help me in formulating blends and utilizing other plants outside of camellia sinensis.
I loved everything about this class. I've never meditated before and the guided meditation videos were very helpful.
All of the Core classes have been invaluable in furthering my knowledge, this one is no exception.
Each course is fascinating and I am continuously surprised by the life of tea. I was really excited for cupping this round and feel that I am strengthening my 5 senses each time I practice. I also enjoyed the week 3 instructor assignments - creating your own blend and the sensory sheet organization system. I am looking forward to Core 3. Thanks for a great course!
I learned about species of teas all over the world and types of differences tea
I love your courses too much, I always learn a lot. It's incredible and amazing. Thanks a lot.
I'm just completely fascinated with all the aspects of the tea process. I enjoy learning through this course.
Great info and interesting assignments
I liked the feedback from Lisa (very informative beyond the class) and also the organized structure of the materials.
Great class. I learned a lot! Looking forward to applying what I learned to the daily tea business.
Challenging course, but very informative.
A lot of information, but really nice to all have reliable information all in one place.
A very informative course, just more scientific than I expected.
Very well scientific and well-researched. Honestly, I was very impressed. I have a science background so I loved all the details. If you don't have science background, be prepared for some intense reading.
