H. Kwon: I loved action packed classes today and totally worth to giving up my days off! 
C. Lang:  Hi sylvana, 
Just a short note to thank you for putting together such an amazing course with so much                                                           experience and guidance from Brigitte, Wolfgang and yourself. I learned so much!! 
It was wonderful meeting other tea merchants from around the world and hearing about their                                                                                   experiences. At the same time it was empowering in giving us an extensive knowledge in blending. Quite                                                               a science! Who knew that xxxxxx would complement sencha! 
I plan on taking other courses through your tea school in future and perhaps visiting the tea garden while I                                                             am in Hawaii this February.
