A cup of tea is much more than a pleasing beverage. It is the culmination of careful cultivation, backbreaking labor, artisanal craftsmanship, thoughtful preparation and centuries if not millennia of history. With each sip, we are not only being nourished by the fragrant liquor, we are imbued with the essence of the people and the cultures that have shaped the leaves.
This course is an exploration of the inextricable influence of cultures and their traditions on how the world enjoys tea today. Learn how tea lovers around the world partake of tea in their everyday lives as well as in tea ceremonies and rituals which elevate tea drinking to an art form, and even to the height of spiritual exercise.
Besides developing a deeper appreciation for the colorful tea cultures of the world, the insights and knowledge gained from this course are valuable to tea business owners and staff. Attract more interest in products and events or add more effectiveness to marketing strategies by sharing the vibrant tea cultures of the world.
