11 September 2017 • Native Australian Tea Blending

It was disappointing, as I came to learn about teas and not listening about the wandu brand and how it established. And when we finally got to the tea making, there was no guidance whatsoever . There was a caos. We had all the ingredients (not labeled) on the table and she gave us two tea bags to fill in. That's the tea blending part. Very unprofessional.

The course was very instructive in the introduction of native plants and their nutritious values as well as medicinal aspects. Mixing of different types of plants for health benefits was also very beneficial.

The class was fantastic! it was great learning about the different native ingredients that can be used in tea, the health benefits of each ingredient and of course sampling each one. Would highly recommend to anyone. Having bread and olive oil to snack on also was a great touch :)
