For Tea experts & Enthusiasts

This science-based tea training tool is similar to tools used throughout the wine industry.

The creation of the Scents of Tea kits brings the science-based education of tea aroma to tea professionals and tea enthusiasts. 


Our kits were created in response to a need from both experts and enthusiasts to have a science-based sensory companion for tea experiences. By experiencing your kit's scents and with practice, you'll learn to recognize the scents of actual chemicals found in teas and train your olfactory senses to recognize the aromas found in teas. Your practice will help you to become a better cupper, tea purchaser, and tea blend developer.
