"I know I speak for many others who were there when I say what a brilliant course it was. Admittedly I wasn't sure what to expect but it massively exceeded my expectations. I don't think I've ever left a training course before feeling so excited and motivated both to put some changes in at work but also to make this the start of further discoveries for me on a personal level."
"I feel inspired, and committed to learning more. Your course is brilliantly pitched and delivered. What an engaging and brilliant tutor you are, as is Kate, and your wider team made us very welcome. Thank you."

Live Webinars - Traditional Chinese Tea BrewingLearner reviews...
'Great webinar with all details concerning Chinese Tea Ceremony. Juyan Webster expertly transmits her knowledge about the world of tea, in a very easy way.'
'Excellent presentation. Great photos of Yixing pots and that really helped distinguish the different styles. Detailed yet easy to understand. Brewing techniques very helpful.'
'Great webinar! Juyan is so knowledgeable and I learned so much. I feel like she could have gone twice as long and still not covered everything she knows on the subject. She came very well prepared with a lot of great examples and tips. I had a lovely and interesting time.'

Jane Pettigrew is an amazing resource person with a wealth of knowledge on tea. I have attended many short courses, but by far this is the best. Absolutely exceeded my expectation & well worth investment. The course was well designed and well executed. Thanks to each & everyone who were there to make this 2 days experience unforgettable.
'There is so much to learn about tea.. and I can’t be happier that I attended this course last week! There was a lot of knowledge shared with us. Amazing experience! I will highly recommend it.'
'Thank you for heightening my love of tea!'
'I really enjoyed the course and now I feel much more confident about my knowledge of tea. It was very interesting, well structured, so it was very easy to learn a lot about tea, and fun. The atmosphere was very welcoming and warm. I loved it!'
'I haven’t been to such a good course in a long time. Jane is a natural. Clear and concise and the amount of information we got through and understood was amazing. There was a balanced mix of listening, video, tasting, working in pairs, and especially fun to get up and guess teas and mix our own. I had never imagined that it would be such a diverse group and such an inspirational atmosphere. Thank you to all for helping me on my first step to mastering the world of tea.'
"Jane, Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge with us. I’ve been to a few different schools both in Brazil and Argentina, but I felt that I learned so much with the 2 days teaching with you, extremely inspirational. Your passion for tea reflects in your teaching and it was so easy to understand and to embrace the tea universe. Feeling very grateful to have had this opportunity. Thanks to all the UKTA staff. I’m hoping to be back next year for the Sommelier Course."
