Tea Sensory Development
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Although simply grown and harvested, tea is a drink with flavour dimensions full of complexities and nuances. Students explore the science of taste and how the production of tea influences the appearance of the leaf and the overall taste. Students learn to identify stages of production, proper storage and handling techniques and to recognize potential production errors and the associated impact on the tea. Through hands-on tasting sessions students apply tasting principles and develop the skills to discern major tea characteristics.
