What distinguishes us from other tea industry qualifications? 

To promote the finest experience of Chinese tea arts, our training covers much more than academic study. The attainment of IMTA certification represents the successful achievement of vast knowledge and exacting skills developed in the training programs. 

IMTA certification symbolizes a wealth of knowledge, the ability to apply the highest standards of tasting skills, and the mastery of authentic Chinese tea rituals. 

Candidates that seek IMTA certification include industry practitioners who wish to make better purchasing decisions, and learn how to offer the highest levels of service for their customers.  The certification signifies an individual’s professional commitment to the standards and objective methodologies established by the IMTA.  

IMTA certification symbolizes a wealth of understanding in tea culture and products, the ability to distinguish quality through tasting skills, and proficiency in the performance of Chinese tea rituals. It also communicates the ability to use expert judgment and skill in all areas of Chinese tea service, and provides confidence to clients, employers, businesses and customer audiences.
