WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Wongduan Wangviwat

I decided to attend this course because of their mission. I enjoyed the tea journey with AST in Darjeeling (World’s Champagne of tea) & Sikkim so much. Learning from the origin & real culture, I truly experienced tea knowledge. Founders, staff and local tea producers were so friendly and hospitable.

From a tea lover and collector to a tea sommelier: It was a huge step for my career. And Asian School Of Tea gave me the perfect platform to follow my passion. Filled with knowledgable people who treat you like family and make you learn from the best of tea gardens. Getting a first hand experience from the presence of tea bushes in the high mountains would never be brought by other schools. I'm honored to be part of same and would love to explore with you guys. Thank you Asian School Of Tea for making me fall in love with tea again.

It was amazing since the plantations to the tasting. So many details about tea culture that I was ignoring. Now each cup of tea has a different taste after this experience.
