Tea Tastings

Tea Tastings
There's nothing like the cozy feeling of sitting around a tea table together.

We believe that the best way to enjoy good tea is with good company. That's why our core mission is to bring people together to experience beauty in a cup.

We offer a variety of tea experiences for private and corporate events:

In-person tea tastings and classes

This our most popular and most recommended format. For any tea tasting, participants can choose a region or style of tea, mix and match, or go for the omakase option (i.e. leave it up to us to choose the teas based on season, mood, etc). For tea classes, possible themes include: tea basics (a world unto itself), gongfucha with emphasis on history, philosophy, and theory, or a hands-on gongfu brewing class. All in-person options are best for smaller groups of 2 up to 6 or 8; if your group is larger, it is recommended to split into smaller groups with multiple seatings to keep the experience intimate. In-person tea tastings and classes are usually designed for a 90-minute session, and can take place in our private tea room or at your office. It may also be possible to make arrangements at a third party venue.

Virtual tea tastings and classes

This option is best for corporate teams where members are working remotely in different physical locations. Each participant will receive a tea tasting set; note that these sets include teas but not tea brewing tools. Participants may use any teaware of their choice for brewing, including just a mug, and we intentionally choose teas for this format that can be flexibly brewed. It is possible for us to ship domestically or abroad, and if it involves multiple time zones, we are happy to find a time that works for your whole team, even if it is outside of our regular hours. There is no maximum limit on the number of participants for virtual events.

Informal tea sampling at a pop-up market/vendor fair

We love popping up at street markets, holiday markets, vendor fairs, etc! We are happy to offer casual tea sampling as part of our sales booth. We typically need 1-2 electrical outlets for heating hot water. If it isn't possible to guarantee an electrical hookup, in some cases we may be able to offer cold brew samples as well.
