Darjeeling tea is India’s best-known tea, and with good reason. Often called the ‘Champagne of Teas’, it is grown at a high altitude with a unique terroir, giving a distinct taste, unmatched anywhere else in the world.
What better place to learn about the history, culture and science of this incredible infusion, than the home of this world-renowned tea.
The Tea Guild of Australia has partnered with The School of Tea Journeys to launch a brand-new education programme, which delves deep into the culture, history and science of tea around the world. The course will teach students a variety of skills by combining theory and practical experiences in the classroom, at plantations and in the factories of Darjeeling.
Students will learn about the entire tea journey, from leaf to cup, and everything that comes with it. Incorporating lessons about geography and terroir, picking and production as well as history and a look at different tea cultures around the world, students will gain insight into the world of tea. In hands-on training with Tea Masters Stephen Carroll and Owen Terry, attendees will also learn the skills of a Tea Sommelier and blender, and discuss the requirements for setting up one’s own tea business.
This course is for tea enthusiasts around the world, whether looking to set up a tea business for themselves or to take their own interest to the next level.
Owen Terry, Co-Director of the Tea Guild of Australia had this to say, “Darjeeling is a wonderful place to run a tea education programme and we’re incredibly excited to be launching this unique course here in June. It will be an intensive 7 days including lots of hands-on experience and extra surprises thrown in. We’ll be learning about and enjoying different teas from around the world, including some fantastic rare examples from small plantations in some of the most amazing tea growing regions. This course is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.
Response has been outstanding, so we’re also going to be coming back here again in October at the end of the monsoon and in time for the Autumn flush, to run the course again. We’ll also be taking the course on tour and teaching in some of the most famous tea growing regions around the world.
Keep an eye on our website www.teaguildofaustralia.com for the latest news on courses and tour dates and locations.”
There are just a few places left for the event from the 4th – 10th June, so if you’re keen make sure you sign up today. The course is open to students from around the world.
