ITEI Certified Tea Blender

Wolfgang Boehmer began his career in his native Germany, graduating from the University of Essen with a degree in Chemical Engineering. In 1979 he joined the flavor house in Northern Germany working with flavours as well as Essential Oils. Soon thereafter he developed his passion for tea and coffee flavourings. Through his work he quickly became involved with the United States Market, so when the German house opened their U.S. production division he took his family to Cincinnati, OH to become their general manager. In that position he was responsible for the company’s success in the U.S. market, due in large part to his focusing attention on the growing tea flavor market.
Mr. Boehmer has over 33 years of experience in the industry, successfully merging his expertise as a flavourist with his knowledge as a business manager. His keen ability to understand and interface with his customer base has enhanced his knowledge and understanding of the industry in his progression from junior flavourist to senior flavourist, from production to plant manager and EVP &COO. Wolfgang always focuses on knowing his customers, their needs, and the forces shaping the marketplace in general. His knowledge and focus has also translated into a role as an educator within the industry, as he has given presentations and seminars in such contexts as SCAA Conventions, Tea Seminars or World Tea Expos.
Mr. Boehmer was the first ITEI Certified Tea Blender to graduate with Honors in both North America and Europe in 2013. He is a faculty member of Canadian Tea Masters, European Tea Masters and International Tea Education Institute.
Mr. Boehmer joined Flavor Dynamics Inc. in March 2007 to help expand the company’s exploration of the tea flavouring market. Since joining the company he has created a wide variety of successful flavouring systems for many kinds of tea, both herbal and traditional.
