Tea Class, Tea Education, Tea Business – How To Start

The resurgence of tea in the US is creating opportunities for tea lovers with an entrepreneurial spirit to venture out to start a tea business in one form or the other. Be it an existing Tea room, Antique store, Spa, Coffee shop, Gourmet store, Gift basket business, Catering, Bed & Breakfast or a home based Internet web site, tea affords opportunities to jump in on the latest trend that is taking the US by storm! Tea rooms are opening up in every small town from coast to coast and every coffee shop is now selling tea, with Chai emerging as the bridge from coffee to tea.

We are pleased that we have been able to help many entrepreneurs from coast to coast, to start their own Tea Businesses with the help of our private Tea Class. Tea Education is the most basic and fundamental requirement for any tea business. Our unique experience of over 35 years, puts us clearly ahead of other Tea Education programs, for the simple reason that we have had hands on experience in every facet of the tea industry and trade from tea estate and factory management to tea importing and blending, tea room ownership, online marketing, wholesale marketing and conducting tea seminars.

Unfortunately, there is a severe shortage of knowledge in the art of tea. The numerous facets that tea encompasses, are specialized niches in their own right. Example, running an old world Victorian style tea room is quite different from a more contemporary Asian style tea house. The accoutrements and other merchandise suitable for one is totally unsuitable for the other. Even the type of teas served in one is different from the other. Such is the diversity of tea and it’s culture. Types of tea vary not only from it’s origins, but also in leaf style, color, taste and density. Making a pot of Oolong is so different from making a pot of Gunpowder.
