ADV.04 The Biochemistry of Tea Processing

In this advanced class, we examine each of the stages of processing from the point of view of the tea leaf and the chemical transformations that are taking place. Our goal is to identify the volatile and non-volatile chemical compounds that we experience in every type of tea we drink and understand how each step of the manufacturing process supports the development of those desirable compounds.

I appreciate the course material, as it gives a much better understanding of how the whole process of tea works. I have had chemistry, so many of the terms are familiar, but I certainly appreciate that it is a review, and we are not expected to have full knowledge of the terms. :)
