ITMA Certified Grand Tea Master Roy Fong is a high-level expert on tea, likely the most knowledgeable man in the U.S. on Chinese and Taiwanese teas, from growing to harvesting, processing, marketing, and consumption. His expertise came to the forefront as he recently led a group of enthusiastic registrants attending the ITMA Certified Tea Master Course™. They unanimously consented that what hey leaned and experienced went far beyond their expectations. They literally didn’t want his sessions to end.
Roy opened the first traditional Chinese tea house in San Francisco back in 1992. He now overseas two Imperial Tea Court locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, one in Berkeley, one in San Francisco’s prestigious Ferry Building, where patrons can enjoy one incredible tea after another and order from an all-organic, sustainable dim sum menu. Both locations are remarkably successful. His success extends to his tea farm where he is growing tea in Esparto in Northern California.
We are thankful for Roy’s contribution to our registrants on an educational level. He truly makes a difference.
