FRANKFURT, Germany and SHANGHAI, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The TeaMaster® Program of the Frankfurt tea company Ronnefeldt took place at the Walldorf Astoria in Shanghai. Service employees from the hotels Grand Kempinski Hotel, Hilton, Langham, Park Hyatt and Waldorf Astoria have mastered the class which was hosted for the third time in China. The training to become a TeaMaster®Silver includes the theoretical exploration of the most important tea cultivation areas, their harvesting and processing methods. The practical component of the class comprises different tasting techniques and several methods of preparation and presentation. The training for TeaMaster® Gold is a real on-the-job training and takes place in the tea gardens of Sri Lanka.


"The tea service in hotels is a profitable but complex business since in addition to a flair for consultation, it also demands extensive knowledge of the product and its presentation", Jan-Berend Holzapfel, Proprietor of J.T. Ronnefeldt KG, explains the philosophy of the training program. The trained TeaMasters® bridge the gap between the expectations one has of a first class hotel and the everyday service. They convey their tea expertis to the guests, colleagues and employees. They stage afternoon teas, conduct seminars, advise their hotel or restaurant on the choice of teas and the F&B departments on creating tea cocktails, iced-teas and the trendy cooking with tea. The Chinese classes are always a special challenge for us as we conduct them in the origin country of tea. Our candidates are always keen on learning all about the global taste of tea and the professional requirements of celebrating it".

There are currently more than 250 Ronnefeldt TeaMasters®, working in the best and most prestigious hotels throughout the world.
