This is a very interesting course. I loved how it goes beyond the physical health aspects of tea and the western knowledge. It serves as an introduction to a much wider conversation that we all need to have in terms of the benefits of tea and other botanicals to our physical and psychological health. I want to read and learn more!

As a small tea company this was very informative & frustrating at the same time. I now know what I cannot say about the health benefits of tea. I am not real clear on what I can say legally say though.
