TEA 104: Tea Types

This course will cover the types of teas produced in different regions/countries in the world. Tasting and style comparisons will be a major component of this section.

Katie’s first experience with tea comes in the memory of drinking Irish Breakfast with her grandmother out of delicate teacups. Today, she carries the same reverence and passion for the art of tea into her day to day life. Katie founded The Monarch Tea Co. in late 2013 with the vision of bringing together the traditional eloquence of tea time with a modern twist. As a Certified TAC Tea Sommelier® Professional, Katie loves to explore the world of tea with others. Her favourite tea is Cream Earl Grey & Genmaicha.

Registration deadline: March 10, 2023
