This is two full days of tea training offered by the Specialty Tea Institute right here in Mechanicsburg. Begin your journey toward STI Tea Certification or start your tea study with a thorough understanding of how tea is grown, harvested and processed. You'll taste a wide spectrum of flavor possibilities within the five different categories of tea: white, green, oolong, black and dark and learn how tea tasters taste and evaluate through professional tea cupping. Whether a tea professional or just a tea lover, this is the only curriculum endorsed by the Tea Association of the USA. STI believes in the value of small classrooms where students can more easily learn the essential skills of sensory evaluation. Developing keen sensory evaluation sills are the foundation of the STI curriculum. Instructors are Tea Mentors Deborah and Mike Raab of Tea-for-All in NJ. Registration is through the Specialty Tea Institute. Fees are $500.00 per level or $875.00 for both levels which includes the study guides and tea samples. Lunch fees additional.
