Tea Time with TEXSOM IWA: Kyle Stewart, STI Certified Tea Specialist, of the Cultured Cup
Here at the Tea Association and Specialty Tea Institute, we are driven to support the entire U.S. tea industry and strive to ensure that Accurate Tea information is made public. At the heart of this are our STI Certified Tea Specialists© , who have gone through our Certification Program, the only Tea Certification authorized by the Tea Association of the U.S.A., Inc.
One of our graduates and STI instructors, Kyle Stewart (pictured with me, below), owner of The Cultured Cup, just presented to a room full of sommeliers and thoroughly "wowed" them, as this linked blog elucidates.
Kyle is a selfless supporter and promoter of tea, demonstrated by his years of service on our STI Board as well as being a leading Tea Mentor for STI.
Thank you Kyle and all those at The Cultured Cup,for engaging with dispensing tea knowledge to those unfamiliar with tea, or those who want to learn more. Through your efforts, the number of tea drinkers in the U.S. continues to grow and more people are becoming tea drinkers, tea lovers and tea acolytes.!
