Fall Schedule: TEA SOMMELIER® Program at the Canadian Food & Wine Institute, Niagara College

We are excited to share that the Canadian Food & Wine Institute at Niagara College will be holding two new sessions of TEA 101 & 102 this Fall!

color-15564_1920These courses will take students on a journey through the history of tea, tea types and production methods, tea grading and of course how to taste tea. Along with learning how to taste tea students of course will be “cupping” teas from all over the world, from the ancient roots in China to the mountains of Darjeeling, hills of Japan, Kenya and so many more. This all takes place at the Glendale Campus sensory lab, located right in the heart of [what is informally known as] the “gastro-haven” of Ontario.


Shabnam Weber will be the instructor for these two courses and will bring her wealth of industry experience to every class. Shabnam is the head instructor and author of the TEA SOMMELIER® Program and also sits on the Board of Directors of the Tea Association of Canada.She looks forward to meeting with Niagara area tea lovers to help them begin their journey with tea.
