'Canton delivered concise, engaging, relevant and inspiring training to all of our staff.'- Adam Kirkaldy Learning & Development Manager Corbin and King
Canton delivers training for all our wholesale partners. We work out a programme to suit each account. It may be delivering training on site, or bringing key team members into our training space at Tower Bridge, London. For the seriously dedicated, we will support them through the UK Tea Academy to gain a professional qualification as a Tea Champion - or even Tea Sommelier.
Open Teach training at the Canton tea studio.
Open to all our trade partners, the afternoon training session provides a great introduction to tea for new staff, or a refresher course for the bar and restaurant teams. We want to make sure that everyone who serves, brews or talks about Canton teas has the essential knowledge and expertise to do it well. We want to instil enthusiasm and confidence so our tea is safe in your hands.
Teach is free of charge to all our partners but numbers are limited so you do need to get in touch with us to book your place.

Canton bespoke training
"When I first heard that we needed to train our full Wolseley Front of House team within a month ahead of launching with Canton Tea, I was filled with doubts and trepidation – I needn’t have been worried at all!
Jennifer Wood, Carri Hecks and Alice Evans, along with our in-house expert Stuart Wilkinson helped us to organise a specific portable boiler to use for the training, and then delivered concise, engaging, relevant and inspiring training to all of our staff.
They came out of their training enthused about the offer and excited about their new knowledge and the teas and infusions they had tasted – even those most resistant to change were fully on board with the product and how this is raising both the quality of our offer and the way we serve individual teas or infusions at the most appropriate temperatures.
The Canton team were flexible and helpful in the face of pressures of time and location, and passionate about transferring their knowledge; the result was a seamless transition to our new tea selection going on sale – mainly due to their fantastic input! Thank you all so much."
