Tea 1

Do you really want to know what tea is, where it comes from and what you can do with it? Then it’s time to gain fundamental knowledge and immerse yourself in the world behind your daily cup of tea!

We look at the origins of tea, the processing of tea and the differences that make for a black or a green tea.

Miranda is een zeer kundige cursusleidster. Ze weet goed te schakelen tussen de theorie en de praktijk van thee & thee zetten. Hierdoor vloog de tijd voorbij. Dit smaakt dus naar meer ;)

Praktijk en theorie door elkaar, veel zelf aan de slag en ervaringen opdoen. Ik heb veel geleerd op een leuke dag.

Wat je leert zijn de verschillende thee/kruiden soorten en hiervan de zet methodes. En hoe arbeidsintensief het plukken van een goede thee is.
