Mastering in Tea


Last week kicked off yet another wondrous iteration of the Australian Tea Masters Certified Tea Master course. This round’s collective of potential tea masters have attended a three-day intensive, to properly prepare them for the exciting road ahead.

And what a brilliant multicultural group we’ve had! Our training class was filled and brimming with fantastic future tea ideas. Their warmth, enthusiasm and passion for tea was paramount for the success of the very first Certified Tea Master class for 2014.

Each student received 60 of some of the world’s most unique and valued teas, as well as a collection of professional Tea Master tools to begin their journey into tea. Their training was conducted under well-respected individuals in the tea industry, including our black tea specialist, as well as puerh and Japanese tea. We were also very lucky to have our own Honorary Tea Master Steve Carroll present throughout the three days to share his epic adventure throughout Yunnan Province and Taiwan as a roving tea reporter. On top of all this, we also had our very first Tea Master Charity Hobbs take the class to a new level on oolongs, and we experienced new and alternative brew methods for tea.

After our exciting visit to the World Tea Forum in Korea in October and experiencing the amazing teas of Boseong County, it was important to ensure that Korean teas were also included in all future trainings.Over the coming 14 weeks the students will be experiencing Turkish teas as well as other exciting challenges in their weekly classes. They have exciting times to come, and their prosperous faces fill us with the hope that they will each become fabulous, well-trained Certified Tea Masters!Our next Tea Master intake will be in July, with another following in August.

Course Positions Filling Up Quickly


How is everyone after the festive season? Full of good food and good teas, I trust?

I apologise that this blog has been a bit stagnant over the Christmas and New Year period, as these are very busy times and I’m sure you all understand that. In any case, we return to regular viewing once more!

Today I’d like to take a moment for some quick housekeeping; our next Certified Tea Mastery course, to be held in-person over March 18, 19 and 20 and the months afterwards is filling up quickly, and not many places are left available. If you’re interested in becoming a Certified Tea Master, please check our information page on the course here:

If you have any questions about the course, feel free to ask away in the comment section, or by emailing our lovely Tea Master Sharyn at

Anyway, we hope everyone has had a lovely holiday season and doesn’t resent getting back into the swing of things. Just remember to have some down time and a cup of tea, and everything will be perfect. 🙂
