Tea Meditation + Tasting

Sip, savor, and relax! Enjoy hands-on tea meditation and tasting events.

The practice of tea gives us the ability to rest in “calm alertness,” a state of being where we are poised yet very calm. These skills translate into our daily lives, both at work, at home, and within ourselves. Choose from our three topics below.

 

The Art of Stillness + Tea Meditation

  • Understand the value of stillness that tea offers in a quiet, intuitive way.

  • Experience guided tea drinking meditations that emphasize on traditional brewing practices that encourage intentional pause.

 

Tea Tasting Experience

  • Enjoy a guided, interactive, and relaxing tea tasting session, featuring a set of beautifully prepared teas.

  • Learn about topics ranging from focused flights (oolong teas, green teas, white teas, etc), country of origin highlights, or specific preparation methods.

 

Ways of Matcha: Comparative Tasting

  • Experience different types of matcha including ceremonial, culinary and daily enjoyment grades.

  • Learn how to distinguish poor quality/freshness from excellence, and techniques for properly whisking your own tea.
