The tea practice is knowing and practicing awareness through the simple act

of preparing and drinking tea.

In the series of 6 to 10 life sessions dedicated to a specific level of experiencing tea, we go from the physical qualities of tea to the philosophical roots of the practice and elements that go into a tea drinking experience. 

Focusing on the teas produced in China, we learn simple methods of brewing and enjoying tea while still getting the best experience, and delve into details of advanced brewing techniques, such as Gong Fu tea of China. 

In the Floating Mountain Tea School, you will not only learn how to approach drinking tea, but also philosophical lessons about how to approach life.

What do people like about the Tea School?

"The breadth and depth of the knowledge that you shared with the class. I enjoyed the slides and the format (i.e. the structure of the lessons) in which you presented the information."

~ Emely 

"I liked the larger context that was given for each of the topics, and learning about the philosophical roots of the practices and elements that go into a tea drinking experience.  I wasn't expecting that, but liked it.

 

I also liked how you started each class with a minute for brief meditation to give us a chance to transition from work, having dinner, the rush of the day, etc...to shift gears, slow down, and prepare for the lesson. You have such a calming presence, which is so needed, especially during the stressful times that we are all living in. That was much appreciated. "

~Lisa

"I like how you bring together the world of tea as a practice of communing (with oneself and infinitude, known by many names) and community."

~Judy

 

"I like learning about how tea is processed.."

~Peggy

"It is not too long with the presentation. A person can only absorb so much information in any topic. It has been a proven fact. I am a picture person. A picture is worth10,000 words."

~Victor

Who am I?

My name is Lina and I am the creator of FLOATING MOUNTAIN.

Leaving 20 years of corporate finance career to open a tea house on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, I studied and practiced tea with the only purpose to create the best experience for my guests. Little did I know that this simple practice will change my life so drastically.

In March of 2020, I had to closed the tea house in Manhattan. My family and I moved north from NYC, and started an online Virtual Tea Club and online Tea School, where I share my love for tea, knowledge and appreciation to this beverage, and tea practice I follow myself, that helps me to live balanced, healthy and happy life regardless of the situation around me.

The best part of learning about tea that it is not about tea :)

p.s. I love koans and zen stories and share plenty of them all the time!
