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.

This course was an excellent conclusion to the blending classes. The video interviews with Bruce Richardson and Gilbert Kendzion were invaluable! Their passion for tea and combined experience in the tea industry was a WOW moment for me. They both emphasized that practice is key and country of origin visits a must. Although I have traveled to country of origins a few times these professionals remind me I have a life long tea journey ahead. I am proud to be equipped with the in depth knowledge of blending from attending WTA classes. I feel confident and prepared with a foundation to build my tea career upon. The staff is helpful and ready to assist whenneeded. WTA iis world class and I highly recommend for serious tea professionals wanting to elevate their position in the industry.

I am so glad you warned us at the last class to not get behind. The assignments were time intensive! But so much fun. This was a great class. I can't imagine how it could be improved. I appreciate all the left over flavors so the fun can continue.
