Tea Sommelier - Online consult


50 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

I miss getting my hands in tea. I recently left the industry to focus on non-profit work, but it has left me longing to be a "tea guy" again. That is why I am offering virtual tea consultations on Simbi.

So often, a dinner party or celebration is longing for the perfect tea pairing to go with their feast. Over Skype (or your choice of service), you can tell me all about your gathering, what you will be serving , and what mood you are trying to set. I'll help you develop your tea selection and give you tips on how to get the best tea for the best price. I will also offer you brewing and serving directions for intimate gatherings or huge fiestas.

Restaurants, cafes, and other businesses are free to contact me as well. If you are trying to develop a tea menu for your company , we can discuss different options in order to make the most of your time (and money)

Training & Qualifications

* 10 years in the tea industry
* Experience with some of the biggest players in the tea industry
* I've been a tea importer, seller, taster, and marketer
* Able to articulate finer tasting points in "menu-size" portion

My background in tea started in the trenches of Chinese herbal medicine. There, I had to make an infusion of bitter roots and scorpions taste appealing to already suffering clients. A chance encounter with a pair of tea saints put me deep into the world of tea. I've worked with many big companies and luminaries of the industry across the world.

Availability & Preferences

Weekends are best, though I do have some limited weekday availability. If this is for an event, please contact me at least a week in advance.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
