What our students are saying
I can't tell you how good this experience was for me.  This trip exceeded anything I could have expected from my previous tea tours with other schools.   My perceptions on how quality tea was made were completely shaken. The various ITEI garden hubs were magnificent. This trip is forcing me to think differently.  I couldn't have hoped for more.   Just wanted to let you know how successful this was for me.
