A Proper Tea - Online

This course is in Italian.

An introduction to the world of tea, with a focus on theory and practice, dedicated to the correct preparation processes. After an introduction of the theory on the origin and the diffusion process of the tea plant, we will do a practical lesson where we will learn the fundamentals of how to prepare a good cup of tea, thanks to our tasting kit that will be delivered once course registration has been completed.
