Did you know:

  • Have you ever heard of “Yellow Tea”? It is the most rare tea family among the six Chinese tea families;
  • The Yellow Tea processing skill is vanishing and it is protected as a heritage nowadays;
  • Dark tea is different from Black. The key conception is “fermentation” which is different from “oxidization”; 
  • Dark tea is compressed into bricks and stored for years. The beneficial bacteria change the flavor as time goes which is the so-called “aging’. 


This course is designed for tea lovers who are interested in yellow teas and dark teas.

This course contains 24 hours of study which are divided into 8 sessions (3 hours/session). A total of 15+ premium tea samples will be tasted during the sessions.  Please refer to “Addition Information” for the Exam requirement and the Locations.
