About “Understanding the Organoleptic Experience”
World Tea Academy’s “ADV.02 Understanding the Organoleptic Experience” is an in-depth exploration of both how we experience tea and what we experience. The “how” begins with the anatomy of our organoleptic system, the tools we use to perceive tea on every level. The course then looks at how the chemistry of tea “colors” our experience, as well as examining some general principles concerning flavor. Next, there is an explanation of how one senses bitterness, astringency and sweetness in tea, and how they are surprisingly related.
