Start of Moychay tea school on 11th February!

The new program is designed for 8 lessons, includes theory and practice during classes.

We base our teaching on a unique method of theory from the  “Geography of the Chinese tea” book and practical tastings with a sensory analysis of teas.

The Moychay Tea School is where we train our staff along with individuals who want an introduction to tea or want to improve their knowledge of tea.

 

The course consists of 8 lessons which will be covered during online 2 hrs meetings. Some additional reading from materials provided prior to the course and a final exam. 

The focus of the course is on the essentials of tea basics(production technology, geography,  brewing), and learning about tea from different parts around the world.

During the onsite classes, participants are invited to practice tea tastings, tea recommendations from the menu, tea service, tea & food pairing suggestions and much more.

 

The course consists of 8 lessons on Saturday and will start on 11th February.

The dates:

11, 18, 25 February, 4, 11, 18, 25 March and 1 April.
