One of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, tea, has become the drink of connoisseurs everywhere and respected as much as wine in every fine food establishment. Tea Course Fast Track™, a half-day in-person seminar, is a sought after training to introduce food and beverage professionals to the history, taste, and business side of tea and offers quality information for anyone wanting to learn about tea, train their staff, and incorporate it into their business immediately.
Global food and beverage professionals have recognized the importance of introducing quality tea as a beverage. It pairs well with all types of food. Steeped tea and/or tea leaves are also incorporated into cooking and baking recipes to create delicious, unique dishes and desserts. Tea is also included as an ingredient in many health, nutrition, and beauty products in addition to spa treatments. These professionals embrace tea not just as a trend but a healthful, classic, and refined beverage or ingredient that lends itself to a culinary experience that goes far beyond a seated afternoon tea commonly served in tea rooms and first class hotels.
Tea Course Fast Track™ is an in-person, half-day seminar for those who need a quick start to learning about tea and incorporating it into their business immediately. It is also a great option for earning CEUs for dietitians and health related trainers. The seminar benefits all levels of food and beverage professionals including but not limited to restaurant owners and staff, hotel food and beverage managers, chefs, mixologists, bartenders, coffee retailers, tea shop owners, beauty shops, and spas – or any type of business wishing to sell or serve tea.

“Training is essential. It is an important and respected first step to introducing anything new – successfully,” says Gastelu. “Over the past 11 years, I have made it my business to listen to the needs of everyone I have met while watching the trends and helping others connect the dots to add tea as a profit center to their existing business. The Tea House Times publication along with our Tea Bureau resources, Tea Course education and now Tea Course Fast Track™ are highly regarded as necessary education to get started in tea,” she continued.
