    I highly recommend this course looking to expand their tea knowledge and learn how to create an enhanced culinary experience for guests who love tea! There were many wonderful examples of tea and food pairings, as well as a few recipes. Hearing about the history of tea as well as processing methods was fascinating!

    Thank you to The Yacht Stew Academy for such a well-put-together and interesting course! This course dives in, breaks down and explains histories of different cultures, types of tea, and brewing so well that now I feel more knowledgeable for my own sake and excited to take my new knowledge into future service and event planning.
