THREE TEAS TASTING

 

PLEASE BOOK ONLINE. Maximum 3 participants. $45 | tasting. The way to experience different teas in one visit. Choose three teas from our menu that you would like to taste. We will steep each tea twice in a gaiwan – Chinese lidded cup, before moving on to the next tea. During the tasting we provide general information about tea types, different cultivars and other fun facts about tea you are tasting. Taste tea by yourself or share with friends, up to 3 people per one tasting session.

CHADAO CEREMONY

PLEASE BOOK ONLINE. Minimum 3 participants. $35 | person. The simple act of serving tea and receiving it with gratitude is the basis for a way of life called Chadao, the Way of Tea.  Of great importance to the Way of Tea is the concept of "kokoro ire,” when the host puts his whole being into preparation for a tea gathering and executes his role with the intent of creating an atmosphere wherein the guest can find tranquility and the guest enters the tearoom with the intent of giving to his host all of his heart, spirit, and mind through his open acceptance of all that the host is doing for him. During one hour, we will drink tea out of hand made bowls in silence despite the outside noise of the world, seeking harmony, tranquility and peace.

GONGFU CEREMONY

PLEASE BOOK ONLINE. Maximum 3 participants. $50 | person.  Gongfu means skillful. Although many Chinese tea brewing techniques are called gongfu, often they are an amalgamation of various styles of brewing. The Chaozhou method of brewing began about three hundred years ago and originally was used to brew low quality tea, creating delicious taste through skillful brewing. During this hour we will brew tea with the skills of the Chaozhou people to create the most delicious cup of tea we made yet. Small gatherings (up to 3 people) are best suitable for gongfu tea.

TEA & MEDITATION

PLEASE BOOK ONLINE. $20 | person.  Guided meditation accompanied by Gongfu style brewing tea gathered every Sunday mornings as well as on a new and full Moon. Please check the schedule for dates and reserve the entrance online.
